Hopeless Youth are a band from Quebec, Canada that plays a mixture of crust, grind and hardcore and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Devil, Walk With Me" which was released as a joint effort between Rainville Records and Pluto Records.
A very hard yet melodic sound starts off the ep along with some drum beats a few seconds later before high pitched grindcore screams make their presence known on the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with some elements of crust and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the energy of punk and hardcore and the music is also more closer to the more modern side of the later mentioned genre and the whole ep also remains very heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
Hopeless Youth plays a musical style that takes crust, grind and hardcore and mixes them together to create a very heavy sounding recording, the production sounds very profesisonal while the lyrics cover dark and occult themes.
In my opinion Hopeless Youth are a very great sounding mixture of crust, grind and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Devil, Walk With Me" and "Lightbearer". 8 out of 10.
