- On 2007's IN THIS LIFE OR THE NEXT, Damnation AD presents its first album since its break-up in the late '90s. Starting anew on Victory Records, the Washington D.C.-based hardcore band unleashes a fierce metallic barrage on tracks such as "The Hangedman," a longtime staple of the group's live shows. Although many post-'90s bands have gone the metal-core route, frontman Mike McTernan and company practically invented the style, thus bringing a truly seasoned approach to the table, making IN THIS LIFE a notable hardcore release.
Alternative Press (p.174) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "THE NEXT does a good job bringing DAD into the present with the sharpest production this band have seen."
