  • Hoods
A popular rhetorical question asks, "If an airplane's black box is indestructible, why don't they just make the entire plane out of the indestructible stuff?" Here's why, smartass: Too much heavy metal just weighs you down. Sacramento's Hoods learned that lesson the hard way on 2003's Pray for Death LP. Dedicated to the notion that metal and old-school hardcore can successfully mix without melting into indistinct sludge, the HC veterans get it right on the new Hoods/Freya split EP. They used to call that crossover, and it generally kicked ass.
