[EPIC HARDCORE] Hardcore is an inherently conservative genre. Birthed, in part, as a reaction to the artier digressions of the post-punk years, it's a culture that doesn't take kindly to derivations from its bludgeoning formula. So when a band like Canada's Fucked Up comes along, using the music's violent assault as a jumping-off point rather than a means to an end, it's a true rush. David Comes to Life, the band's 2011 magnum opus, is maybe the world's first punk-rock opera, a 77-minute epic of double-helixing guitars and shoegaze textures with battering-ram momentum and frontman Damian Abraham employing his grizzly man roar to bark out a multipart narrative about a doomed romance. L.A.'s Terror, on the other hand, is a lot less ambitious, staying within hardcore's loud-fast-crushing parameters. Appropriately, its newest album is Live by the Code.
