Human furnace vs real furnace....at the same time say the word furnace about 10 times and it gets really lame.

Lame like not paying child support and lying about 90s merch revenue. What a deadbeat midget.

Really lackluster track, imo. No wonder why most of their sets are The Promise + Birth Is Pain material.

Why do hardcore bands - pseudo-hardcore bands in the case of Ringworm - insist on being around forever well past their best days? Eight albums? Hang it up already. Them and Sick Of It All. So many bands are the music version of old baseball players who just won't retire and do something new. Only in hardcore do bands literally live off their first album or two or three like RW and SOIA.

What's he talking about re-issues? Last time I checked, only the Promise was re-issued. And what does that have to do with the new album? Confusing..

Last few times I've seen them it's been mostly Justice and after.

I'm sure Ringworm is REALLY living off of that multi-platinum first album.

Consistently great band. Nearly everything they've created has been better than 95% of the garbage on this website that is paraded about as quality music

Yeah I enjoy Ringworm, even their later releases that all sorta blend together. Obviously The Promise and Justice Replaced are still the best but it doesn't really bother me. Absolutely true that modern kids have no idea what to do with this band though. I saw them with Vein last year and they just looked confused.

I've really liked the Relapse records. Think it's been some of their best stuff next to Justice. Albums may, overall, be better. Saw them with Gwar last year and all the normal hessian types seemed to love em.
