If you’re going to go out, go out on a high.
Counterparts have taken this idea for their seventh outing. It sears, twists and turns, while vocalist Brendan Murphy delivers what is purportedly all he has left, the addition of founding guitarists Alex Re and Jesse Doreen ignites a sizzling franticness that swoops as much as it soars.
With ‘A Eulogy For Those Still Here’, the brutality remains brutal, the emotions run high and it’s all for a Counterparts that feels stronger and more unstoppable than ever. ■ Steven Loftin
