Bad Brains - Into The Future
The DC hardcore legends return with their hybrid brand of punk and reggae fusion
The DC hardcore legends return with their hybrid brand of punk and reggae fusion – a staple in the punk pioneers’ genetic makeup since the get-go of their colourful career. Despite numerous line-up changes throughout the years, the band have never strayed far from their youthful integrity and Rastafarian principles, all accompanied by London-born frontman H.R’s distinctive vocal drawl throughout.
With the classic line-up back in the mix, Bad Brains prove to be anything but a spent force. Despite lacking the raw tenacity of their earlier efforts, especially evident on their seminal ROIR-released self-titled cassette, the record is littered with interesting moments, especially the subtle dub instrumentation, which provides an interesting dynamic between the rugged guitar chops throughout the record.
