Even though the modern metalcore genre has grown into a slightly overwrought style of music, back in the late 1990s a grip of bands were doing extremely cool things with the genre. One of these groups was the New York-based straightedge metal outfit Earth Crisis. The band's original approach to making music was highly unusual and lyrics tended to center around animal rights, straight edge mentalities and veganism. The band experienced some ups and downs after its formation, even breaking up, but the group of sober headbangers is back and they rock harder than ever.
