Go It Alone - "Vancouver Gold" (RVL013)
The debut effort from GO IT ALONE, entitled "Vancouver Gold", is melodic hardcore at its best. Taking cues from the likes of CHAIN OF STRENGTH, GO IT ALONE mixes aggressive straight-ahead hardcore with an emotion that brings to mind only a few in recent memory, namely COUNT ME OUT and BATTERY. This EP has a similar driving, melodic sound, yet the lyrical content and the overall feel of the record is much darker and more brooding than that of its contemporaries. With topics ranging from the horrors of prostitution to the struggle with self image, this record exposes both the grit and the gold of the band's paradoxical hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia. (This EP was originally released by Straight On Records in 2003, now back in press as a re-release on Rivalry Records.)
