\"TheGoing strong since 2007, Canadian hardcore group Counterparts recently released their third studio album, The Difference Between Hell and Home, via Victory Records.

Picked as a selection on Alternative Press\’ \”100 Bands You Need To Know in 2012\” due to the success of the band\’s sophomore debut The Current Will Carry Us, Counterparts are quickly becoming known and moving up the ranks of the hardcore music scene.

Each track on The Difference Between Hell and Home seems to get heavier and heavier, beginning with the opening track, \”Lost,\” which starts out with a slow progressive tempo and the screaming vocals of Brendan Murphy.

Other tracks such as \”Debris,\” \”Outlier\” and \”Compass\” are straight up hardcore punk with heavy guitar sounds and drum beats that will get you headbanging.

Fans of hardcore bands such as Alexisonfire will be pleased with Counterparts new album – The Difference Between Hell and Home.
