Point of Recognition

Not in the mood to type up something on Point of Recognition. I loved them, saw them only once and went nuts for them. Their stuff got extremely heavy throughout the period of releasing only three full lengths and a three-way split with Torn in Two and Cast in Stone titled Now the Tables Have Turned but remained somewhat of a generic sound. One thing I did enjoy about them was they always mixed some metalcore in with their tough facade. Here's a decent bio that can be found on their Wikipedia page:

Point Of Recognition had been playing for about a year before releasing their debut album Admiration of a Son on Rescue Records in 1999. Four of their songs were also included on a 3-way split CD, titled Now the Tables Have Turned, on Facedown Records (along with Torn In Two and Cast In Stone). The band toured constantly before releasing their second album Refresh, Renew on Facedown Records.
With the heavier sound from the Refresh, Renew album, the band toured with the likes of
H20, All Out War, Throwdown, No Innocent Victim (Southern California neighbors with whom they perform often), among many others, quickly gaining fan support. However there were soon lineup changes. With No Innocent Victim and former Dodgin' Bullets guitarist Tim Mason joining the group in 2002, the band would release their final album Day Of Defeat in June of that year.
Day of Defeat was praised by fans and critics alike[
citation needed]. The band called it quits in October of 2002 in order for the members to pursue other interests, musical and/or family.
In January 2007, it was announced that Point Of Recognition would reunite for Facedown Fest 2007 on March 24
[1], much to the delight of the fans.
