Instruction : Rise Up
Power-grunge and protest rock reborn in the same song!
Not many people can do that thing with their throat where it sounds like its being ripped apart by a helicopter propeller with razorblades on the end and still hold a tune. One of those people was Kurt Cobain, and another one is Arty Shepherd from rising post-hardcore darlings Instruction. Although there’s little more sentiment to ‘Rise Up’ than its chorus of ‘Rise up!/Rise up!/That’s what I say!’ Arty makes those words sound like the most profound and romantic thing anyone’s ever said, as a torrent of angry and angular guitars scattergun everything in his path. This is music with teeth and the brains to know the right things to destroy with them. This is hardcore, and it’s coming for your larynx.
