Farside is a Los Angeles hardcore band (originally founded by Rage Against The Machine's Zake de la Rocha). The autobiographic concept Rochambeau (Revelation, 1992) revealed Michael "Popeye" Vogelsang's tortured persona (Hero, Future Days). While even more accomplished, Rigged (Revelation, 1994) seemed to close their story. Instead the band returned after a long hiatus with one of the best hardcore albums of the year, The Monroe Doctrine (Revelation, 1999). This mature work boasts some of their most anthemic melodies yet (Moral Straightjacket, Statues of Snow, The Fashionable Rebellion), semi-acoustic ballads (I Hope You're Unhappy, The Slowdance), and emotional outbursts (Better Than Crying, Teach Me How To Die). Guitarist Kevin Murphy is in splendid form. (Translation by/ Tradotto da Matteo Gentile)

I Farside sono una band hardcore di Los Angeles (fondata originariamente da Zake de la Rocha dei Rage Against The Machine). Il concept autobiografico Rochambeau (Apocalisse, 1992) rivelò il personaggio disturbato di Michael "Popeye" Vogelsang ( Hero, Future Days). Rigged (Revelation, 1994), sebbene ben realizzato, sembrava chiudere la loro parabola. Invece la band è tornata dopo una lunga pausa con uno dei migliori album hardcore dell'anno, The Monroe Doctrine (Revelation, 1999). Questo lavoro maturo vanta alcune delle loro melodie più vecchie ( Moral Straightjacket, Statues of Snow, The Fashionable Rebellion), ballate semi-acustiche ( I Hope You're Unhappy, Slowdance) ed esplosioni emotive ( Better Than Crying, Teach Me How To Die). Il chitarrista Kevin Murphy vi appare in splendida forma.
