For Fans Of
Get The Shot produce a brand of thrash/hardcore crossover music that is as in your face as it is energetic and aggressive, and their second album, ‘No Peace In Hell’, is the product of the band having honed their skills, both live and in the studio for five years since their formation in 2009.
‘At War’ serves as something of an introduction to the record, while ‘Rotting Idols’ is what really sets the pace for what to expect. Opening with chugging guitars, abrasive percussion, pick slides, a shredding guitar solo and gang vocal spots all in the first thirty seconds, the track sets the tone for what the record is before moving into an aggressive, fast-paced and well put together hardcore track.
‘Cold Heart’ keeps things up at an absolutely blistering pace, giving off the impression that Get The Shot aren’t going to slow down anytime soon, and frankly, you won’t have any problem with that. By ‘Erase The Scum’, however, the initial shine and strong first impression that you find at the beginning of the record wears off a little bit, and the album starts to seem a bit repetitive. It’s not overwhelming, but you can’t help but feel like something more could be done to avoid it.
There are still some pretty strong tracks strewn throughout the full-length that have enough strength to stand out on their own. ‘Nothing To Nothing’ and ‘Prometheus’ both show off the band’s unrelenting assault of aggression, which fans of the band’s style are bound to love, while ‘Lynch The Lord’ takes a more measured approach to tempo, which serves the band very well.
In parts good, in parts indifferent, but the end result is positive.
By no means is ‘No Peace In Hell’ a fantastic record – but it’s still an impressive sophomore release, nonetheless. Despite not being able to live up to the lofty first impressions put forward, the album is still a somewhat strong product that makes it clear Get The Shot are on the right track.
