Iron Cage (featuring members of Los Asesinos Del Superficialidad, a godsend band name when you're trying to pad out a review) were a very pleasant surprise when they toured with fellow Dutchies The Last Mile (who proceeded to completely level the venue) a few years ago. Much of what I remember involved a lot of jumping around and generally energetic hardcore riff action, so it's great to see that this album positively bristles with all that and so much more. There's a definite mix of air-punching hardcore with a more cerebral approach of a band like Rites Of Spring, or a Mike Kirsch Ebullition band, with plenty of pace but also plenty of invention. This is a great record.
