Muscle Beach - Eagle Wizard

BrooklynVegan describes the Denver trio's sound as "frantic post-hardcore that's already gotten a few comparisons to Refused... catchy, weird and aggressive." Arena-sized hooks, driving beats, and bottomless desperation unite in the album's 11 sweet nuggets of rage/rock, topped off with curveball lyrics about pirates, aliens, prostitutes, and sharks. It's an effective mix and it earned Muscle Beach the title of "Denver's best hardcore band" from local rag Westword.
