True Love are a straight-edge hardcore band from Detroit, Michigan. Recorded in the summer of 2015 with Andy Nelson at Chicago's own Bricktop Studios, their first full-length Heaven's Too Good for Us is 13 songs of razor-sharp hardcore, clocking in at a breathless 17 minutes. True Love races and pummels through anthems of taking back what's owed, straight-edge fury, broken vows, and the real truths of love lost and sometimes found. Tracks like "Your Side" and "Where It Ends" ache and twist with promises of forever, backed by crushing walls of guitars and "nobody stands still" breaks, while tracks "Kill for That" and "Stay True" showcase their ability to slow from frenetic, breakneck speeds to a mid-paced groove that leads to a controlled chaos. The record also features guest vocals from Turnstile's Brendan Yates and Forced Order's Nick Samayoa.
As far as the lyrical world created by singer Dominic Vargaz is concerned, listeners are either with him, or against him. While True Love initially started as an attempt to resurrect a forgotten sound, with the dual buzzsaw attack from guitarists Alec Faber and Brad Walker, and rhythms driven by bassist Joe Palleschi and drummer Derrick Daniel, the sound becomes entirely their own. Whether they're playing blistering sets on their home turf of Detroit, or playing shows across the country with peers and the bands that defined their sound -- their vision is uncompromising.
