Agnostic Front and Hatebreed probably arent
pretending their snowman is Parson Brown.
With Agnostic Front, Diecast, Love
Is Red and Autumn Offering
Hatebreed creates soundtracks for skydiving, with its gruff lyrics providing the confidence boost and its blistering intensity mirroring the adrenaline rush. After all, Vin Diesel parachute-tested the Connecticut band's "I Will Be Heard" in XXX's signature scene. Agnostic Front apparently plays the kind of hardcore that makes people mosh in museums while a freakish female mauls a broken-toothed man in a decorative scarf. So suggests the Cremaster cycle, Matthew Barney's epic art-film series that casts the trailblazing outfit as the Guggenheim's house band. In Cremaster, Agnostic Front repeatedly restarts its songs before reaching any of its cathartic double-time payoffs, building unbearable tension. Onstage, though, the New York thrash thugs race to every bone-crushing climax.
