"Old Love" (Self-released; 2010)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

New Jersey quintet Chambers kick out the jams with a spirited old school rock'n'roll swagger and a fierce hardcore sensibility on their raw 11-track affair, "Old Love."

Striking down with bountiful arrays of pit stomping rhythms and razor sharp riffs while displaying an infectious sing-a-long quality that lies somewhere between Sick of it All, American Nightmare, AC/DC, and The Bronx (“Old Love,” “Take My Juice”), Chambers proudly maintains the unremorseful and honest approach of yesteryear’s hardcore punk while opting to abrasively apply a slash and burn attitude to a batch of seething compositions with an inescapably vitriolic vocal delivery unfettered by excess.

Chambers is far from innovative yet they stay cranked to the max without fail, exhibiting a relentless sheer sonic force that gets the job done.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
