Seminal NYC hardcore veterans Agnostic Front have changed the face of music throughout their 30-year long career. The two records that started it all, ‘United Blood’ and ‘Victim In Pain’, are legendary New York hardcore releases that were partially responsible for the creation of the hardcore genre itself.

Cricien also guests on ‘Never Walk Alone’ along with Toby Morse (H2O) and Lou Koller (Sick Of It All). Recorded at Buzzbomb Sound Labs with Paul Miner (Terror, H2O, Atreyu), ‘The American
