The final full length from '90s Austrian melodic hardcore band THOSE WHO SURVIVED THE PLAGUE. I would be lying if I said that I loved the whole thing, but the moments that work are plentiful. "Nobody Told Him Fish Can Swim" is some weird bridge between anarcho punk and harDCore, "Die Like A Dog" conjures up SUBMISSION HOLD, and there are countless other moments when I'm rocked to attention with a "holy shit!" or, even more often, a "whoa - that reminds me of *blank*!" Favorite track for this listener is "New Era,"and there was enough here to make me seek out their earlier recordings...so that's a vote in favor.
