Gather - Total Liberation (2005)


"Gather was an Independent Vegan Straight Edge Punk Band. They play a brand of sincere hardcore that I haven’t seen in almost a decade. Their radical politics, vegan straightedge lifestyle, and forward and open support of direct action for Total Liberation, laid over some great mid-1990s style crunchy metallic hardcore, send tingles down my spine every time I hear them.”

Defiantly one of those most underrated bands from first wave metalcore, Gather has an awesome blend of hardcore punk with crushing metallic deliverance along with female vocals. Even though their second album, Beyond The Ruins, had three times as many tracks as Total Liberation it just did not live up to the first release. There's just something really catchy about this first album I can't put my finger on.
