I've been following Boiling Over since their first show, and now two years later they are at their peak. Incidentally, this peak coincides with their end and last show. I hate when bands stick around past their welcome. It's cool to see Boiling Over quit before their inevitable slide into making indie-hardcore with like trumpets and harp and sound bites from obscure documentaries. No way, I don't think those dudes would ever do that.
I'd argue that Barriers even has a swan-song called "On the Fringe." You get the fast section at the top with Pat's mean vocals, and then all hell breaks loose when Joey does his thing on bass and the mid-tempo instrumental part kicks in. Your mosh impulse triggers, and you want to lay waste to this ugly, trashy city.
