I Need Closure


I Need Closure is something of a Knoxville supergroup. Anyone who has been around this city’s hardcore/punk/metal scene for the last decade or so already knows the histories of guitarist Joshua Holt, bassist Chase Valentine, and drummer B.J. Graves, so we won’t go there. The group’s debut recording, Uneasy Listening, sounds like a band that’s been playing together for years.

I Need Closure is something of a Knoxville supergroup. Anyone who has been around this city’s hardcore/punk/metal scene for the last decade or so already knows the histories of guitarist Joshua Holt, bassist Chase Valentine, and drummer B.J. Graves, so we won’t go there. The group’s debut recording, Uneasy Listening, sounds like a band that’s been playing together for years.

Well, some of them have been playing together for years… While it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly which subgenre the band belongs to, no one could deny I Need Closure’s total heaviness. The group would definitely be classified as hardcore, but which variant? The sonic darkness and bludgeoning guitar riffs points toward metalcore, the introspective and self-loathing lyrics veer toward modern hardcore, and the old school influence of Black Flag lurks throughout. One thing’s for sure, I Need Closure deftly avoids hardcore clichés: There’s nary a mention of “staying true,” scene unity, beatdowns, or crews, no singalong choruses, and only one song has lyrics about being stabbed in the back. What we have here is hybridized hardcore, smart and dangerous music with an artsy edge reminiscent of Deadguy, Converge, or Unsane. The group’s aural onslaught is relentless, and the guttural screams of vocalist Bobby Pattterson add an appropriate psychotic edge.

Hardcore with a capital H, I Need Closure is perhaps the heaviest band of the genre that Knoxville has ever produced. You have been forewarned: Listening to I Need Closure will either drive you crazy or induce the deepest depression you’ve ever experienced. Read more on Last.fm.
