As always, Said And Done sounds just a little different on this new 7” compared to their previous work. Vocally it seems like Pim has taken the John Joseph and Jonah Jenkins style and made his own version of it. Musically there’s a bit more going on than just plain old hardcore on this release. A bit of metal, a lot of groove, plenty of melody and just a pinch of post-hardcore are added to the NYHC that the band already played. Think of bands like Only Living Witness, Fahrenheit 451 and Maximum Penalty. Especially the track ‘Fit The Mold’ (shouldn’t that be ‘mould’, by the way?) is different than the older stuff. Said And Done keeps on expanding their sound and I think that’s a good thing. Closing track ‘Burning’ is a typical song for all you Cro Mags lovers out there. I wonder if the title track ‘Weight Of The World’ and especially the line ‘Don’t try to carry the weight of the world’ was inspired by the label that released this 7”. After all, it’s called Carry The Weight. The lyrics of these four songs are very easy to relate to, by the way. I’m sure you all have felt the same at one time or another. I also like the artwork of this release: a drawing of Atlas with the weight of the world on his shoulders. All in all Said And Done created a very cool release and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. Check it out!

|Het nummer (met die titel) lag er al toen we door het label benaderd werden Het was wel de reden dat we de plaat ook zo genoemd hebben. Anyway, bedankt David!|
