DOWNLOW NYHC - WALL OF ANGER The Reissue CD The 1998 NYHC Classic Debut from DOWNLOW is now being re-released with new packaging. This classic CD features member of Kill Your Idols, New Faith & Cause For Alarm on this recording. Produced by Mike Dijan from BREAKDOWN. This is a Limited press CD. For fans of AF, Cause For Alarm, Breakdown, Warzone, Abused, Cro-Mags, Urban Waste, Murphy's Law and just great NYHC. DOWNLOW NYHC - WALL OF ANGER CD REVIEW IN JERSEY BEAT ZINE The guys in Downlow NYHC have been kicking around since the early 90's, and despite line-up shifts, temporarily disbanding, and fighting off the many trends that infiltrated hardcore, the band stays devoted to the early 80's style that defined New York legends such as Agnostic Front and Sick of it All. The band roars through six tracks here, but none of them are blinding bursts of noise in an effort to see how quickly the band can play. Instead, Downlow NYHC takes the time to construct well articulated songs, replete with tempo shifts and class two-step grooves on "Change of Pace" and "Diseased". Granted, the thirty-seven second "Breakdownlow" abandons this model for a track that seems to invoke the spirit of Seth Putnam for a few seconds, but then it is back to basics on "Blindfolded". The music here is for two aficionados of a classic hardcore sound. The guitar playing is thick and deceivingly harmonious, the drumming is barbarian in it's fury, and Joe Downlow has the definitive vocal style of New York's Lower East Side. They are an excellent example of pure hardcore musicianship and intensity. DOWNLOW NYHC - WALL OF ANGER Review in Empty Hands Zine To see someone re-issue this means a lot to me. I hope it opens the door for people who may have missed this over a decade ago - or are younger than i am - to get to cop these 7 songs of NYHC mastery. DOWNLOW, to me, was a classic sounding NYHC band that never got it's props. Due to certain circumstances with it's singer, Joey Downlow, the momentum of the band lost tread when it could have gotten a powerful trajectory. But that being what it is, let's talk music. This is NYHC with no shame in it's love of Oi! And Punk. As it should be. And as a single release, this specific release stands out as a pinnacle of the Downlow output. Downlow put out standout tracks on seminal comps like Creepy Crawl Live, From the Ground Up, and Scene Report with killer song (respectively) 'Slosh Victim', 'Stop and Think', 'All My Life'. Downlow also put a banging 7' out with Against the Grain (another brutal NYHC underrated band - check Mentiroso) on Guillotine records. And while i could toss away 'Diarrhea'; 'Keys' in a it's simplicity was a rager for me. And to this day, when i can't find my keys, i chant this song. 'Keys' and 'Stop and Think' showed up on Tommy Rat's label, Free Spirit Records along 3 other tunes. Again, a sold release. But when DOWNLOW whipped out 6 new tunes, with Mike Dijan at the noards and mastered by ALan Douche, this 1998 gem was born. Joey was joined by Paul Delaney (KYI, NMB, BLACK ANVIL) and RAEPH (KYI, SFA) and two guitarist (who i do not know - sorry). 'No More Pain' opens with that jangly NYHC bass guitar over a sloppy slow beat. Guitars come in and the bounce begins. This quickly leads to a frenzied delivery of fast beats and thick chords. 'Why is my life going down the drain?' at 1:30 we get a breakdown into two step HC party. I think Dijan must have had the reigns on the last half of the song cuz it wanders; which is a good thing. This is not cookie cutter HC. The bass and drums all clap at the right places. Then to finish, a heavy, thick, slow dirge wraps it all up with noise and screams. 'Change of Pace' how you can ignore this song? again the bass escorts us into a a two step beat where Joeys sings just right, 'i'm trying to do what's right for me and my family'. The second verse follows suit. This time, however, we get some gang vocals that change the pace (sorry...) and add another layer. 'Can't you see life is what you make it? just don't give up' this may seem like a change lyrically from the more depressing songs - but it fits the melody of the lead guitar line that pushes the song and two step beat of the drums. Nd it fits a working, striving protagonist. 'Wall of Anger' this is a cry to just be left alone. Obviously we are an angry bunch and we don't want help. Easy to relate to - and damn easy to move this flurry of chrods and snares. It holds my favorite guitar part that demands some fists to fly. Fast and vicous. 'Diseased' Joey gets a little heavy on the NY snarl, so the lyrics come in handy here. But this rhythm is NYHC at it's best and the guitar layers are impeccable, helping to build this song to it's climactic chorus; which yields a tight tough breakdown. The last 30 seconds are vocals and lead guitars carrying the weight of chaotic turmoil. And the lyrics are a push of self-righteous much needed in the times of turmoil of a relationship in shambles. 'I won't ever change - to something i can't be - and i won't take the blame - coming down on me!' a good beckoning to the Sheer Terror lyrics i have embraced since a youth. 'when your love becomes my hate' 'Blindfolded' this joint comes in with much heavier, rougher riff. And my, is it splendid. The riff is more metal influenced, almost a HELMET 'meantime' feel, but then the bridge jumps into more of a real metal feel. The pounding toms and bass drums under the riff call for a 'Crucial Change' as Joey calls back the AF godfathers. Appropriate for this crossover gem 'Refrain' ends this disc. A mid paced beat leads into to a slow breakdown of arms and kick flailing. This is one hell of a tune to end on. 'Wall of Anger' and 'Diseased' come out as perfect songs with clever songwriting and poignant lyrics. But even for all songs: Lyrics are on point. The songwriting is exceptional. The production is tight. It just all coalesced for a ravaging NYHC CD. United Riot Records recruited J&M Designs to deliver another banging layout. This is one of my 'no one is allowed to talk during this' albums. I can't have it in the background. It needs all of my attention. I hope you have this. If not - please pick up this re-press with great design, thought and lyrics page.
