Rise up and raise your fists! The Unseen kicks some ass with its riotous hardcore punk. The Boston quartet combines the street-smart ethics of classic punk with elements of screamo for an aggressive gut-punching rock sound.

The Unseen's not just another Warped Tour-tailored punk revival act. Its fifth album, State of Discontent, which was issued last spring, embraces the group's political conscience without becoming slobbering, Ritalin-induced punk-rock drivel. Producer Ken Casey of Dropkick Murphys fame captures the terrifying energy of State of Discontent, and tracks such as "Waste of Time," "You Can Never Go Home," and "On the Other Side" are mini-anthems raging against conformity and social rejection.
