Cleveland, Ohio's metal / hardcore legends Ringworm are back with their first full-length album since 2001's already-classic "Birth Is Pain". "Justice Replaced By Revenge" is Ringworm at their most fierce, featuring 13 blistering tracks of metallic hardcore, with paint-peeling vocals by the aptly-named "Human Furnace". The sheer intensity of this new disc is remarkable, especially considering the fact that Ringworm have been a band since 1991, a lifetime in the hardcore world. While musically Ringworm don't offer up anything new, what sets this record apart from the scores of imitators in this scene are the truly wrenching vocals courtesy of the Human Furnace. His is truly one of the most unique voices in hardcore, and on "Justice Replaced By Revenge" he has raised the bar once again. Without a doubt, this is one of the few essential hardcore releases of the year
