It seems that more and more Hardcore bands are starting to sound exactly the same as the last, with members bringing a look as if they were some emo-rejection from the film The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Fortunately, there has been a good surge of good Hardcore acts lately that seem to bring the balls back to the style. Weekend Nachos is another one of those bands, with their unforgiving full-length effort Unforgivable. If you’re looking for something intense, if not stuck in somewhat of a pattern, then this is the place to start.

Unforgivable carries it’s name well, as the music and lyrics are simply relentless. Some of the tracks on here, such as the starting track “2009”, as well as “Elevated Tracks” show just intense this band can be, and seems to show some inspiration from other Hardcore acts that include Grindcore, such as Napalm Death. However, the band doesn’t stray too far from their roots, as there is plenty of two-stepping, as well as breakdowns that actually work well with the music. Take the track “Nights” to be the perfect example of this, utilizing a second vocalist as well near the end, and “Rejected Psychopath” which even features some gang vocals for a very brief moment prior to going into a long but very heavy breakdown that will make you want to go and punch babies.

With a name like Weekend Nachos, many have either passed over this review thinking it’s nothing of interest, or, like myself, you were curious about the band simply by the really obscure name. Rest assured the name doesn’t mean the music is silly at all. The only “silly” part that some may claim would be the vocalist. At first, the vocals here may throw the music off, as the vocalist seems to do this rough, back-of-the-throat style of performing that makes him sound as if he recorded this while attempting to go to the bathroom. After a while, you’ll wind up looking past that and see the album for what it is: A good old fashioned Hardcore curb stomp. The title track, “Unforgivable”, is honestly the only let down off the release here.

Many of the tracks on this release seem to bleed into one another, and this is the case with “Unforgivable”, which starts off as distortion that bleeds in from the previous track “Reason to Die”, and goes on for quite some time before the track continues with what sounds like just one very long breakdown. While it isn’t that bad a track, the sounds that start the song really pull it down and are even migraine inducing. Another thing listeners may notice about this release is that the music sometimes seems to be a bit formulaic. Granted, given the track times, there’s nothing much you can do with some of the songs, but either way it doesn’t really detract from the overall enjoyment of the album.

If you like intensity with your Hardcore, then make sure to add Unforgivable by Weekend Nachos to your collection. Each track on here is pulverising, working perfectly with music that goes back to the roots of Hardcore, as well as an introduction of Grindcore elements to add to the sheer brutality of the music. With the exception of the closing track, Unforgivable will grab you by the throat with it’s teeth and shake you wildly as it attacks with punishing blow after blow.
