Artist(s)On The Edge Of Forever
Label(s)Monument, The Underground Fraction

If heavy and fast hardcore with raw melodies is your piece of cake you should be just as excited as we are about the Örebro based hardcore band ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER. If you listen to bands like TRAPPED UNDER ICE, DEAD SWANS, GIVE UP THE GHOST and MODERN LIFE IS WAR this should be your cup of tea. If you dig DIY, well, then this is a killer.

“We have been a band since we were kids, and for the past year things has started to get more serious for us. During the years we have played a lot of shows all over Sweden and in 2012 we finally got to play some shows abroad. Through all of these years we have also learned that the only thing that works if you want to get something done is to do it yourself, instead of waiting for it to happen. We try to network, we put up shows, we record and release our own records. And most important, we try to help others who is doing the same thing. Through these times we shared growing up together and playing music we have shared a lot of experiences together. In 2013 we started building our own studio to record our debut album”.

We know OTEOF have put a lot of hard work into recording the “Always on the losing side” LP and we are really happy that we are one of the lucky labels (together with The Underground Fraction) to represent this masterpiece.

This is MON048, a killer record from start to finish that breathes hardcore and is a true piece of art in the DIY culture.

ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER – Always on the losing side LP

Örebro har fostrat många duktiga punk- och hardcoreband genom åren och ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER är ett i den senaste vågen av unga lovande gäng. Musikaliskt håller sig deras debutalbum i den moderna hardcorefåran – det blandar tungt malande med lugna partier där melodierna får spela huvudrollen. Och där kommer min första och egentligen enda invändning mot den här skivan.

Melodierna och den bitvis lite tunna sången gör att ”Always on the losing side” låter snubblande likt screamo, vilket är synd för merparten av materialet är riktigt bra hardcore med medryckande riff. Lyssna på tvåtaktsmanglet i titelspåret, den malande avslutningen (värdig finska CALLISTO) på ”Coffee eyes” eller moshet i ”Crossed out” så förstår ni vad jag menar.

Review: Jakob Ekeholm, Close Up #163 (Juli 2014). Betyg: 6/10.
