Get It Now

On their self released debut LP, Courtships rage through 9 songs of crushing technical hardcore. It's no easy feat in 2011 to successfully channel the chaotic metal/hardcore style perfected by bands like Botch, Coalesce and Converge in the late 90's, but these songs feel fresh and more then anything contain a frantic urgency and energy that is sorely lacking in many more current bands playing the style. As the band has been so gracious to provide a free download link to share with all of you as well as this review, I highly suggest you check it out yourself, and keep an eye out for a band that surely has good things in store. -Words Of Evil
