Their hearts are metallic punk, but the Incendiary boys have melodic hearts.

Incendiary Boys

By Anthony Mariani

From crude, angular, and tough yet imminently accomplished, Incendiary has quickly matured and become less raw, more poppy. The bandís new e.p., Only As Hard As You Make It, isnít just good for a local band. Based on a few spins of several new tracks posted as one big medley on the bandís MySpace page (www.myspace.com/incendiary), the disc is good, period.

A metallic, punk-ish heart still beats beneath the quartetís polished veneer, yet instead of propelling movements single-handedly, it functions as part of a multi-tendrilled attack. Clanging riffs crash against jagged walls of rhythm as sturdy melodies unfold gracefully and singer-bassist Cullen Dansby does his neat little trick of sounding like a lovelorn young adult tenderoni with lava in his veins. Heís neither pushover nor bully, and the odd ambiguity he conveys neatly reflects the essence of a band that traffics in obvious references to myriad guitar-based genres but never succumbs to anything less than unique brilliance.
