Review Summary: You might not know these guys. That's okay. But you should change that.
The most important thing about music is neither the ability of the musicians in playing their instruments, nor the good production value, nor the label the band is signed to. It is passion. Musical masterpieces have been created by people who wanted to put an important message out in the world, by people who truly love what they are doing and not by those who make music solely for the purpose of being in a band because it's, uh, cool. That being said, musical ability is obviously not an obstacle when it comes to putting out a record that appeals to listeners in every shape.
Meet the British Hardcore band Polar. They have put out two EPs (including this one) and one album in the course of the last two years, and another one is scheduled for early next year. This EP was originally released through Oli Sykes' clothing label Drop Dead and is now re-released on In At The Deep End Records. But don't you label the band as bad solely because the often despised lead singer of Bring Me The Horizon likes them. For reference: letlive. was also discovered by him.
What these guys do is not by definition beautiful. It doesn't even aim to be. Inspire Create Destroy is eleven minutes of raw emotion, with lead singer Adam Woodford screaming his heart out like there is no tomorrow and the musicians around them doing their part more than just well, with the guitar riff in the chorus of Inspire to be mentioned as outstanding even for the high standard of the release. Nothing in the course of the EP feels in any way repetitive and every song has a slightly different touch to it that fits the overall sound very well.
With the release of Inspire Create Destroy, Polar has already crafted a sound that not only sounds really mature for a young band like this, but also leaves hope for future releases. You should keep an eye out for these guys.
