Twofold were the first band that played at the Peel Fest in August. Most people probably missed them. I was impressed enough to invest in this release, so they obviously left enough of an impression. The opening song "Unity is a Myth" is downright amazing. Mixing up a combination of Hot Water Music, Avail and Kid Dynamite, is it any surprise that this song impressed me!! What's even more amazing is that they're from England! Its about time the UK had a band like this.

The second and third songs sound completely different though.... give us more UK Avail darn it!! Anyway, the second track is far more melodic and punky. Reminds me a lot of Travis Cut actually. How they went from the first song to the second song I'll never know! Third track "Small Victory" is absolutely amazing as well. Melodic punk rock down the wire. Powerful and addictive. I really like the bands poppier style, but I do prefer the gruff vocalled hardcore-rock of the first song! If they write more songs like that, then this band could be stunning.

The Bombjacks - another band I don't know anything about. Over the three songs they mix up the sounds of melodic punk rock. Some of the moments on here really remind of Pinhead Gunpowder. And that is definately no bad thing! Catch that riff at the beginning of the first song. Awesome. And dig the "waaaay-aayy-ooooh" vocals towards the end! Cool. "Know the Score" and "Meteorites" are two more amazing melodic punk rock anthems that are going to ensure this CD gets played again and again....
