In a blend of chaotic emotional intensity and precise beauty, Jamie Behar, Kevin Roche and Steve Roche find a realm of untouched hardcore catharsis. “The Heat Death of the Universe” Off Minor’s first LP is a journey of heart felt monologues built around the difficulties of the respective band member’s lives.
listen to the record:
On this album their troubles seem to deal with the issue of suicide and death, both in terms of inward struggles and dealing with the consequences of the choices those around them have made. Musically, there is no comparison to Off Minor in the hardcore scene. Their skill, originality, and vast appreciation of various genres helps their expressions reflect technical prowess as well as be an emotional outlet. The dynamic buildups and crescendos found on this album are prefect sonic reinterpretations of the bipolar nature of the overlying concept of the album.
