Lionheart – Love Don’t Live Here

Lionheart love dont live here album cover ghostcultmag

In recent years I have tried to expand my horizons especially into the hardcore genre. With the latest release from Lionheart, entitled Love Don’t Live Here (LHHC Records), I remember why the generic hardcore band is just something I cannot buy into. Although this record is shy of the thirty minute mark, I found myself rolling my eyes after two tracks in. I completely understand that hardcore is meant to be self empowering, but these lyrics honestly had me laughing at how corny, juvenile they are.

While I did not really have any favorite tracks, I do have some thoughts on a couple tracks. First and foremost, ‘Keep Talkin’ (yes, they dropped that “g” at the end of talking) easily has the worst lyrics on the entire album. “I don’t give a fuck about none of y’all so fuck y’all… so suck my dick” really just sums up the entire album. Generic hardcore riffs, followed by lackluster breakdowns, with edgy lyrics written over the top, really only attracts one kind of music fan: the edgy teenager. ‘Still’ is another laughable track where the lyrics are basically the band praising, well themselves. ‘LHHC’ and ‘Lionheart’ are shouted throughout the song while other lyrics such as “we do it like this” are also incorporated before another poor breakdown.

To put this into perspective, I could only get through Love Don’t Live Here maybe two or three times entirely. Every other attempt ended with me jumping to something else because this album was just too much to try and listen to seriously. Just imagine twenty-seven minutes of shitty breakdowns, a vocalist that records his fabricated laugh in between each line, and even doing a mic check in the intro of a track, and you have the latest release from Lionheart. I hope this was the first and last Lionheart album I ever have to listen to.
