Focused Minds "The Fact Remains"


It seems that every time heavier influences become all the rage in hardcore, an element of the scene harkens back to the glory days of the late ï80s. At the height of ï90s mosh-inducing riffage, bands like IN MY EYES, TEN YARD FIGHT, and FLOORPUNCH took a different approach with what was called the ñyouth crew revivalî style. Now, a decade and a half later, FOCUSED MINDS are a part of yet another rekindling of this sound, counter-balancing the popularity of more metallic hardcore.

As with any new era of musicians drawing heavily on past influences, FOCUSED MINDS donÍt simply rehash the old, but instead put a contemporary twist on the youth crew sound, creating songs that feel familiar, yet current. Their first full length, The Fact Remains, serves as evidence of this, demonstrating a well-versed awareness of those that came before them while reinvigorating the style for a 2013 hardcore scene.
