      High energy music

      Age of Quarrel is the 1st album by the New York hardcore outfit Cro-Mags, the original was released in 1986 but the more common version to find is the one released in 1994 on the label Another Planet which also comes with the band's second album Best Wishes attached to it providing a pretty interesting contrast.

      If you like punk/hardcore and a bit of thrash metal as well then the Cro-Mags is definitely a band for you, the first 15 tracks are mostly short bursts of energetic power, the last 8 are considerably longer as they were written 2 years later in 1988 when the band had entered the crossover scene. Likewise both parts of the album have different singers, the first part is sung by John Joseph and the second by bass player Harley Flanagan after John Joseph had left the band

      Flanagan is an interesting character, having released a book on poetry at the age of 9 with non other than family friend Alan Ginsberg writing a foreword for it, he was already drumming with The Stimulators by the age of 12 and his lyric writing is one of the things that sets the band apart from other hardcore acts, unless you're a big hardcore fan then you might even say the lyrics deserve better singing.

      The band lay down great riff after riff and Doug Holland has a pretty recognisable sound that almost gives the guitar playing a bit of a tinny feel at times, probably using cheap guitars I imagine! The production is pretty poor but the music is rather raw so it's not a big issue, it's not really an album to sing a long too either but if you want something with the heavy riffs of Metallica but with the pace and vocals of Black Flag then you'll love this. Unfortunately it's not particularly cheap but it's easier to come by than most of the Cro Mags albums!
