In the course of several decades, New York has acquired a reputation as a hardcore hotspot by spawning bands such as Sick of It All, Madball and H2O. Another NY-based hardcore outfit is Stray from the Path. As a rule, hardcore bands deliver a highly political message, both in their lyrics and their general attitude towards life and society. Still, the message often gets watered down as the band in question becomes more successful. Not so with Stray from the Path. The New Yorkers still call ‘em like they see ‘em. They don’t care what toes they tread on and they don’t pull their punches. Their heart is in the right place too. Several years ago they played a charity concert in Kenya raise funds for the good cause. Their music features influences from punk to metalcore to alternative metal and their lyrics home in on the social and political issues that have turned the US into a nation divided these past years. #GMM23
