Comeback Kid – Heavy Steps LP (Pink/Grape Clash Coloured Vinyl)
COMEBACK KID (Winnipeg, AB Canada) - Heavy Steps LP (2022) Released By New Damage Records on Pink/Grape Clash coloured vinyl - limited to 500 copies. Heavy Steps is the 7th full-length studio album from Winnipeg's Hardcore upstarts COMEBACK KID. It marks the band’s longest gap between albums of their career coming in at about 5 years.
COMEBACK KID wasted no time getting back into it with opener “Heavy Steps.” Gang vocals yelling “Heavy steps / On hollow ground” confirm to the listener that the wait was worth it. The opener has COMEBACK KID firing on all cylinders - anthemic Punk Rock chorus, monstrous breakdowns and gang vocals, and a metallic crunch throughout. Compared to 2017’s Outsider, Heavy Steps definitely takes a more straightforward approach.
One might say this is back-to-basics from COMEBACK KID, but honestly, their loyal fans will find this a very welcomed return for the highly energetic live band. Heavy Steps is another consistent edition to COMEBACK KID’s catalog offering one of the first great Punk Rock albums of 2022. In, out, and over in 32 minutes, there is a lot of replay value in this one. COMEBACK KID never let the foot off the gas all the way through closer “Menacing Weight.” -- New Damage Records – NDRV078
