"A History of Violence" kick of with "False Flags". This is a great opening track and instantly catches your attention with its gritty beat which kicks at you to pay attention. The track has a political underlying message which you should at least listen too.

Carrying on from this, "The Killer Inside Me" pushes into a more heavy rock feel with is guitar riffs and solo and at times feels like a track from bands like Yashin or Sikth than something from post hardcore and shows their ability to push out of a box that many may try to put them into.

"It's Not Working Out", "Swing Away Merrill" and "Burn Down London" have a more fun pop punk feel and are a great additions to this album. "It's not working out" lyrically sounded very similar to This Wild Life but, with the word fuck thrown in a "few" times for good effect.

The title track "A History Of Violence" pushes more towards hardcore and assaults you with the beat. I couldn't stop myself from banging my head to it. There is moment of calm at about 30 seconds in but, this is just the calm before this storm. This has a feel of a great live track that you will either punch or hug your friends while it is playing.
