The brooklyn guys and gal will hit Atomic Studios with producer Dean Baltulonis this May. Expect more crushing hardcore, and some new twists. MPB will always throw you for a loop. Trustkill. 2005.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank god for MPB October 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
A couple things are worth mentioning here. Number 1, Trustkill generally had an awful year. 6 records and 3 of them were complete and total busts (those busts being Fight Paris, Bedlight For Blueeyes, and Bullet For My Valentine). Thankfully, Open Hand, Throwdown, and Most Precious Blood all delivered.

Number 2, A few years ago, this may not have felt as original as it does now due to the fact that independent music is basically oversatured with metalcore bands doing the swedish metal thing, so Merciless actually feels very refreshing with its more traditional hardcore sound.

Number 3, Rob Fusco finally has impressed me as a vocalist. He has this ability to stretch and echo his voice unlike I've heard any other singer do and as a whole, Merciless is in fact the best album MPB has ever released. There's a few scattered breakdowns, but generally this album flys at a breakneck speed. Shark Ethic is probably the best, most epic sounding song they've ever written. They do experiment a little bit with some different styled riffing and some short leads, but nothing to drastic. It's only there to pepper the songs with some variance. There's a lot of use of samples as well. Sales figures on this album were not looking to good last I saw, but this should be checked out if you want to have your faith restored at all in Trustkill and to show Josh TK and the rest of his staff that we don't want this other garbage they seem hellbent on releasing. Call me an elitist but I miss the old days of hardcore and MPB brings me back to those days.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Really "Merciless" Record [4.5 Stars] November 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Wherever you fall in the realm of hardcore music listening, whether it be just a casual surveyor or a diehard elitist, it is most likely that you have at least stumbled across the name Most Precious Blood. And with good reason too, since these guys are one of the few acts today we seem bent on taking hardcore back to its real roots. Although the band is both straight edge and vegan, you do not have to be either to enjoy the music. In fact this is far from the preachy "my way or no way" lyrics or a band like say Earth Crisis. MPB just do what they do best; Bring the rukus.

"Merciless" is probably all around the strongest record this band has released thus far. Now of course fans are immediately going to be crying "Nothin In Vein! Nothing In Vein!" and if that is your favorite record, it's understandable. However dismissing the music the band is currently putting out because Tom is no longer the frontman is simply foolish. Most Precious Blood still embody the true spirit of NYC style hardcore; Loud, Fast and Heavy. The guitars pound out plenty of punishing rhythmns, and although the disc is not oversaturated with breakdowns (a high point) when they do make their way into the songs it feels very natural. There are some small leads and even a few moments of riffing that compliment the angry atmosphere very well. Rob sounds more adapt at roaring over the malignant violence that is the band's sound than ever before, and the larger confidence he seems to have in his voice is very apparent. The rhythmn section isn't exactly stellar, but in terms of the overall sound the band creates, they fit in just fine. As far as the song selection is concerned, any of the thirteen tracks is a keeper.

By Khyron
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In the decade that has passed since the death of Hardcore as a viable musical movement, any number of bands have stepped in to fulfill our insatiable need for 'Heavy'. Most of those bands, and especially the career musicians like Lamb of God, Unearth and Killswitch Engage, fused the ultra-heavy rhythm section and twin-rhythm guitars of 90's Hardcore with Sweedish inspired, technical solos to create what is begrudgringly referred to as Metalcore. Though bands like Hatebreed, 108 and Vision of Disorder continue to write and record what are essentially 90's Hardcore records, that glorious sound born out of Sunday all-ages show in Manhattan, DC and Boston has been dead in the water for far too long.

Enter Most Precious Blood and their 2005 offering "Merciless". While many of their New England contemporaries are embracing European metal in the same way bay area Thrash bands in the early 80's owe their livelihoods to NWOBHM, Most Precious Blood picks up where Boston natives Only Living Witness left off. With one foot planted firmly in 90's Hardcore, Only Living Witness was among the first Hardcore bands that dared branch off and sound "metallic". Likewise, the sound created on 'Merciless' is firmly grounded in East Coast Hardcore but expands the somewhat rigid confines of the genre. This is most apparent on Shark Ethic, the opening track and easily the most ambitious song on the record. The anthemic drums and choir that open the track could be mistaken for something out of the Nightwish playbook but the driving rhythm guitars and furious screams that follow are meat and potatoes Hardcore. Perhaps it is Rob Fusco's voice that ties this music so closely to Post-Hardcore.
