Bailer - Disposable Youth Award winner

Disposable Youth
by Shea Higgerson at 28 January 2022, 8:05 PM

Get ready for some dirty, grimy hardcore music from Ireland’s BAILER with their release of “Disposable Youth.” If you’re sad about EVERY TIME I DIE splitting up, check out this band and let them try to fill the void, at least partially. Imagine your ears are this band’s punching bag. That’s what it’s like listening to their energetic, blasting, crunchy music. I can just picture the mosh pits these guys have at their shows.

“Cruel Master” is a beastly, unsparing song with wickedly uncompromising lyrics. In fact, the entire album is full of blunt lyrical content, which is only fitting for this type of music. This one is definitely my favorite on the album, though. “This goes out to those that wanna run their mouth…” just gets me going. It’s such a hype song.

This album is as ruthless as experiencing a car crash repeatedly. But that’s hardcore music — harsh, unforgiving, noisy. And maybe even a little bloody if the pit gets wild enough. This band is no exception and will not disappoint fans of the genre. BAILER is not afraid to call you out on your bullshit, which is proved without a doubt in their song “No Apologies.” They’ve absolutely created the perfect angry, give-no-f*cks music.

What I like about hardcore music is that even though it sounds like a bunch of noise to those who don’t really listen to it, it sometimes has deeper emotional, and relatable, meanings if you just listen to the words. “There is a Love That Remains” is a good example: “There’s things that I regret, it’s keeping me awake, too much heartache.”

That being said it can also be A LOT to handle and sometimes feels a little repetitive like being knocked down over and over even though you’re waving the white flag. I think, for the most part, BAILER does a good job of adding in some variety and keeping things fresh and interesting so every song doesn’t sound exactly the same.

BAILER ends things just as nasty as they began them with “Fester,” which has a ferocious breakdown. I feel like it was the perfect end to this album and by the end of the song I felt like I was crawling out from underneath the rubble, witnessing all of the destruction.
