Will to Live defines TXHC, or Texas hardcore. Once the musical assault commences at a Will to Live show, it doesn't stop even for a second. As the lead singer explains the meaning of the next song -- and it could be about anything from the ills of society to the joys of friendship -- there is always some growling guitar or rumbling drums in the background, the better to keep up the heat from start to finish. While fans of punk-metal fusion bands Hatebreed or Straight Faced would probably feel most at home with Will to Live's sound, nobody should feel unwelcome. The band members always tell their fans that they love diversity in the bands they play with and love to see the same in the crowd.
