IN REVIEW: Joe Frustration, Painful Awakening, Straight Laced Nightmare

Joe Frustration: No Way Out
(2007 Plague Within records)

Solo project from Joe (Tears Of Frustration, Last Battalion, Across The Hudson, Hatelordz, H8machine, ect). Definitly highly recommended if you're into oldschool sounding hardcore with real everyday life lyrics. Not to mention he covers YDL's Blue Pride making this album an instant classic in my opinion. Definitly worthy of picking up, you wont be disappointed. ~Steve Skam
