New TEST OF TIME album streaming in full!

1 min read

Boston hardcore act TEST OF TIME has unveiled the full stream of their new album “By Design”, out now via Bridge Nine Records. Remaining an above average highly energetic hardcore album, this piece of work is absolutely incredible. Just taste it, embrace it and see them live at one of the following stops.

Test of Time’s members are no strangers to the punk scene, from frontman and photographer Todd Pollock to guitarist/vocalist and record label proprietor Charles Chaussinand to bassist and ex-Energy/Daytrader road dog Robert Cheeseman (the band also features Beartrap’s Mike Assatly on guitars/vocals and Jeff Novak on drums). After unleashing a prolific amount of material considering their formation two short years ago, including one self-released 10-song demo (2012’s ‘Inclusion’), two EPs (2013’s ‘The Price’ and the more recent ‘A Place Beyond’) and several cover singles, the band has crafted a proper full-length debut of speedy, howled youth crew hardcore à la Youth of Today, Bane and In My Eyes. ‘By Design’ is guided by the careful, detail-oriented approach of architectural planning (as hinted at by its visual motif), and uses that focus to deliver unexpected shifts in tempo dynamic, musically and lyrically sly references to hardcore’s past, and sincere decrees pertaining to vegetarianism, The Straight Edge, perseverance, and one’s own personal growth and change. / Bridge Nine Records
