Boston-based post-hardcore outfit Defeater injects a healthy dose of classic punk fury into their explosive sound. The band's 2008 release, TRAVELS, sustains that fury from start to finish. While TRAVELS is purportedly a concept album that follows a human life through the mid-20th century from birth to death, the real impact of the album is sonic, not narrative. Breakneck crushers like "Everything Went Quiet" and "Forgiver Forgetter" are all pummeling rhythms and throat-shredding vocals, leaving the listener breathless.
