THIEVES are a US hardcore band and this is their debut album. THIEVES play dark, violent hardcore. I can’t help but like this kind of relentlessly bleak and abrasive music. Over the course of 27 minutes THIEVES abuse the listener with their brand of dark hardcore, which mixes elements of grind and black metal into its caustic mix. The likes of CONVERGE, NAILS, TRAP THEM, DARK CIRCLES, GRIEVED, ATTAN, and COWARDS into a pit of broken glass, watch them fight, and allow the victor to emerge only to cut them down savagely…Thieves are the aural equivalent of this.
