AllMusic Review by

Amp Magazine Presents: Hardcore, Vol. 1 gathers 25 tracks from contemporary outfits like Atreyu, Beneath the Ashes, and Every Time I Die -- where hardcore is spliced aggressively with elements of metal, thrash, and screamo -- as well as the pummeling power chords and righteous frontman sounds of standard-bearers like Madball, Sick of it All, and Slapshot. It's a solid mix of tracks all the way through, perfect as a mix tape for scene veterans, but even better as an introduction for newbies. For them, it probably should have come with earplugs.
