Faithful yet crabby

Scheduled to perform on Saturday, September 24
Marquee Theatre in Tempe
"God save me from my past and present sins," growls Freddy Cricien (rhymes with Christian) on the Kings of New York Hardcore's latest aggro epistle, "Heaven - Hell." Past sins include being an offshoot of a band you may have heard of called Agnostic Front, releasing albums that clock in under a half-hour, and recording a cover version of the Animals' "It's My Life" without learning the song. Present sins include making fans wait five years for a follow-up to Hold It Down, a pre-9/11 collection with the World Trade Center prophetically and eerily missing from its New York skyline cover. Despite Freddy's finding his faith, Legacy ain't all-out Christian hardcore, but more a thinking man's browbeat music, one that still has enough blood-boiling tough-guy posturing and pummeling ("For My Enemies"), yet still has space for diplomacy ("Adapt and Overcome"). Excuse me, "Adapt and Overcome"? Grrrwwwaaa!
