Stick To Your Guns' Melodic Moments Are Their Highlight
On a stacked bill of hardcore bands Stick To Your Guns certainly hold their own with plenty of big mosh moments in their arsenal but it's their melodic side that is their biggest strength. In part it's their use of space that creates this, so when those moments do come they can't help but stir a sense of hope within the aggression. Clean vocals may be sparsely used by the five-piece but when they are, they are utlilised to stunning effect with the posi messages behind Amber, Against Them All and We Still Believe being something that you can't help but throw yourself into 100%.
