Fixation – “The Secrets We Keep” LP

Philadelphia (USA) stalwarts Fixation had a couple of  7″s knocking around a few years ago, and althugh they were competent slabs of tight, raging hardcore, I guess they failed to leave a deep impression (I would struggle to recall one of their tunes), whereas this full-length album steps things up by delivering a highly satisfying whack to the ol’ lug’oles that was not expected at all. Fast and furious (the entire franchise in one hit) from start to finish, embellished with some tasty suprises – a quick check of the band photo and one member sports a Quicksand hoodie, another a Samhain shirt. Does that indicate a stylistic influence? Not in an obvious way, no –  but it is a good indication that this is an album that goes places above and beyond the typical hardcore template. With an impressive roster that features members of Chemical Fix, Wild Red, and Drowse. A debut full-length by a band prepared to wait out their time (which absolutely paid off here). Recorded, mixed, and mastered by the band’s own Wyatt Oberholzer.
