Maximum Penalty’s ‘Life & Times’ music video directed by Don Capria
December 18, 2009
The album, ‘LIFE & TIMES’, might very well be the best hardcore album of 2009. Inspiration of the album is definitely influenced by the harsh realities of life but more so the relentless drive to persevere all hurdles that one may encounter during their journey. It is their first release in over a half a decade – 7 years to be exact. However, as we’ve all heard this expression before, like a wonderfully aged bottle of Boone’s Farm, Maximum Penalty has only gotten better with time.
This is an album that can be viewed by younger generations as a personal footpath to living life. The best thing about this album is that MP did it there way. As many bands may try to emulate what is currently going on in music, Maximum Penalty said fuck all the bullshit and stayed with the original hardcore formula – which means not giving a shit about what anyone thinks. Veteran fans like myself, as well as new comers to hardcore, both get an equal dose of old school flavor. There’s definitely something to say for a group of dudes still putting out classic hardcore music for nearly a quarter century, right?
Maximum Penalty has just released their first ‘music video’ ever which was directed by Don Capria (Skarhead “D.F.F.” & Danny Diablo “Don’t You Want Me?”). You can, and should, get this album at either iTunes or at Reaper Records.
