"Criminal Minds" EP Review
New York Hardcore. What's there to say? It has a long standing tradition and Senseless are a band that look to keep the pure tradition alive with their new "Criminal Minds" EP. The EP kicks off with "Eyes Wide Open". The track opens up with a earth shattering breakdown to get things going. The pace is outstanding and really goes from fast two stepping to slamdancing breakdowns effortlessly. "Cold Judgement" is a shot of adrenaline. The track is the longest track on the EP closing in at two and half minutes but my goodness does it pack a serious punch. It's like getting hit with a boxing glove full of bricks. It's heavy as hell and should be enjoyed by everyone who's a fan of Hardcore music. "Swing Back" brings shades of upstate NY Hardcore such as Earth Crisis or GhostxShip with some incredible breakdowns, awesome pacing with a dash of chants. That end breakdown is something to be heard to be believed. The closing track "Dogma" goes all out. The audio assault is in the forefront and it simply devastates everything in its path. Hardcore music is in good hands with Senseless.

Verdict:
Senseless keeps New York Hardcore alive and well with their new "Criminal Minds" EP.
