All in all, this is a ripper and an ultimately rewarding, though sadly short, blast of hardcore done right. Raw, powerful and full of conviction.
With a traditional brand of stripped down, fast paced hardcore/punk, Maine’s own Wake Up Call had a style they could comfortably call their own, primarily thanks to charismatic frontman, Aaron Billon. Billon’s vocals gave the songs a refreshingly new dimension, offering a old school hardcore feel comparable to the likes of Warzone or Underdog. With intelligent lyrics to match, “One Eye Open” remains a flawless debut from one of Maine’s most respected hardcore bands.
