Cast the First Stone

An Album By

The Great Commission

Review by

Let’s play a game. I write only the most important words about the new The Great Commission album, deal? Cool.

New Album. Cast The First Stone. Eleven tracks. Vulnerable from the outset. Singing … well, singing done well. Do I like melodic vocals in hardcore now? Maybe. Pulling it off for sure.

Classic hardcore crew-alongs, with the Commish twist. Sincerely performed. Emotional (not sappy, emotional; they’re different). Not soft, even with the singing. Perfect, honest title track. Honest album. Will they offend? Maybe definitely. Hopefully. Honest music should. It should affect us all.

There’s growth. Development. Check it out. And think about that, too – Cast The First Stone. That’s heavy.

Quite The Undertaking

Frenzied. Chaotic. Punk. The Undertaking!, San Diego's newest wild bunch, is about to release their debut album, and, if their live show is a premonition of any kind, the world will be opening up to one heck of a party with them. Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.
