The latest reviews:


Ukonnaula - Vanhan Vallan Kahleet

Nordic Noise Records - CD -


1168_ukonnaula.jpgMembers of King´s Cross (Tomppa and Sanntu) founded new project called Ukonnaula (which means something with nails). The band name is in their native language so the songs will be in Finnish also. On demo tape will be six songs but on their web https://ukonnaula.bandcamp.com/ you may check first three songs. Also one song will be on EP which will be released with Spanish skinzine called La Veu de València. On the tape are three songs on side A (Vanhan Vallan Kahleet – Old Strong Bonds, Pimeä Puoli – Dark Side and Verijäljet - Blood) and three on side B (Köysi Kiristyy – Tightening Rope, Tuomittu - Doomed and Vapaa, Vankka ja Vakaa – Free, Strong and Stable). Since their first song Vanhan Vallan Kahleet the band kicks your balls as hard as King´s Cross – guitar with solo in each song, great bass in the background and singalongs (like in Verijäljet, Pimeä Puoli, with one vocal over another and with mutings and drownings or the last Vapaa, Vankka ja Vakaa). Solo at the beginning of Tuomittu is really into hard rock for example. Graphics of the tape cover is also OK. The band says that these songs are demo records but the sound (and mainly music) quality is OK for me and I hope the songs will be later out in some standard way. I really recommend it to all who likes quality music without compromise and people who are behind this project are the proof of quality. Great!

The Reapers - Rip it Up

Rebellion Records - LP -


1167_reapers_RIU.jpgThe Reapers is Dutch band from Utrecht/Rotterdam which was founded on the ruins of Discharger after the Tim went to for Haymaker. They play in four but they have two guitars and all members are helping in vocals. This is their debut album but they´ve already released three songs on Oi! Ain´t Dead 7 compilation. Together you may check 13 songs in English plus spoken intro from some movie called Things Are Bad. Music is somewhere in middle rhythm and two guitars can be really heard. Their sound is inspired by Templars, Legionaires or Janitors – just check the songs like Ugly Mug or Wrong Side of the River (with great straight forward drive) but there are also melodic pieces like Always the Underdog (with nice guitar at the beginning and great refrain), Bankers (which starts similar to Get a Rope from Cock Sparrer) or Sirens of Sorrow with slide guitar which reminds me many Australian bands. Here you may check the first song from the album called Ultra Violence https://youtu.be/c20MPWlzfKk. The band brings what I like in Discharger songs and they´ve added more hardness which make the sound perfect. To all of this you may add nice dark cover and you will receive great albumfor the beginning of 2019. Perfect.
