Stick To Your Guns
Review by Josh Mason of Josh Mason Design
Genre – Melodic Hardcore
This album has earned 4 out of 5 stars as its emotionally driven lyrics and vocals provide the substance
on top of catchy rhythms that will keep the listener coming back.
The Orange County, CA based, Melodic Hardcore band, Stick To Your Guns are starting off 2015 in a big
way with their release of their 5th studio album and latest effort entitled “Disobedient” that comes out
today, February 10th via Sumerian Records and is a follow up to their 2012, #1 Heat seeker top album
Stick To Your Gun’s “Disobedient” is an action packed, emotional roller coaster that clocks in at 30
minutes and 53 seconds. The album starts off with what some would say is the album theme. “It Starts
With Me” gives the listener the sense that the philosophical point of the record is to always be yourself
and to make the change you want to see in the world by starting a change within. The albums touches
on inner struggles, outward facing struggles and problems that the world presents. The emotionally
driven lyrics and vocals are what make Stick To Your Guns stand out and is also what have brought the
band to the forefront of the Melodic Hardcore scene.
For those who may not be accustomed to Hardcore, Stick To Your Guns provides a single that gives the
listener a taste of the variety the band has to offer with “Nobody”. The single, as with several other
songs on the album, features clean vocals. This is something that the band has begun to incorporate
more of over time. The album also features several guest vocalists, including Walter Delgado of Rotting
Out on the track “Nothing You Can Do to Me” and Scott Vogel of Terror on “I Choose No One”.
The only downside to the album is that it is only 30:53 long. After 3 years, one would hope that the
band would provide more material. With that being said, there is a deluxe version of the album that
includes the additional song “Every Second” and Acoustic versions of “The Crown” and “Nothing You Can
Do To Me”. One thing to remember however is that the majority of Hardcore songs that exist are very
short. In fact, many are micro songs. Stick To Your Gun’s “Disobedient” gives the listener exactly what
they want from the band after a long duration without new material and yet, leaves the listener
wanting, if not needing, more.
If you’re a fan of Melodic Hardcore, then Stick To Your Gun’s “Disobedient” is most certainly a great
listen for those wanting new, heavy, emotionally charged music, in 2015.
