Stepped Out are from Split, Croatia and I interviewed them for this zine couple of months ago.
Now, the guys released their brand new e.p. containing four songs. Braveheart is a melodic old school hardcore song with fast and singalong parts that I can totally relate to, because I think it is about Bila´s Mom who passed away and I lost mine too. Abandoned is an emotional song with a more modern hardcore touch and melody with excellent lyrics about finding yourself and finding strength to carry on when all seems lost. Modern Plague is most harsh song on this record reminding me a bit of Strife back in the nineties. The lyrics are about media, gadgets and modern world which rules the lives of most people on this planet. Lost In Flames is for me besides Braveheart the best song on this little release me being in the scene for so many years and reminding all the glory days, heartaches, happy times and sadness. Superb melody, lyrics and spirit.
Great one. This band carries on the torch of hardcore in Croatia.
