It's a testament to the dynamic nature of Coliseum that in the band's decade-long career, it has been classified as hardcore, rock 'n' roll, punk, and metal. People have a hard time pinning the Louisville, Ky., trio down, simply because stylistically it has always followed its own path, embracing heavy riffs and dark themes but never forgetting the importance of great hooks and anthemic melodies. The band's fourth album, Sister Faith, continues this tradition. It was produced by post-hardcore legend J. Robbins, and swings between straightforward tales of punk rockers doing their thing ("Black Magic Punks") and driving, near-apocalyptic exclamations ("Fuzzbang"). Coliseum always imbues its music with an intelligence and thoughtfulness, though — which translates into a thunderous but thought-provoking live show. Don't forget your earplugs.
