The latest reviews:


Sniper 66 - Annihilator

Evacuate Records - CD -


1189_sniper66_annihilator.jpgFrom the city of Austin in Texas came many good bands like Concrete Elite, Lower Class Brats or Dog Company (where plays bass brother of singer and guitars from Sniper 66). Annihilator is fourth album of the band and you may check 15 songs on it. The band plays in four with two guitars and behind the drums you may find girl April. kde hraje brácha zpěváka a kytaristy tady ze Sniperu na basu). Annihilator je v pořadí čtvrtéé album kapely a najdete na něm celkem 15 songů. The album is dedicated to the case from the 80´s of 19th century where Austin was terrorized by serial killer with nickname Servant Girl Annihilator and who killed 8 people with axe. There are four songs about this topic - Annihilator, Servant Girl (with perfect vocals in refrain), Psycho and In His Grave (with official video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOd0W3rKhDY) and each song contains different view on the problem – murderer, victims and press. Two guiatars are always better then one and Sniper knows how to use them just check the reviews on their previous stuff like Caput Lupinum. The first track Annihilator shows you the direction of the band sharp guitars and fast rhythm which was driven by the drums straight ahead, second one Fight Together (about the fact that other from the left or right want to fool you and force you their opinion) will prove it also. Other songs are about running from the problems (When it´s gone with nice singalong), about the fact that you can be yourself but it is hard to resist (fast one called Make it Mine), perfect hit called Not Perfect (about the fact that you can´t change yourself in a minute), then song The Engineer about single mother of five who stood against and the customs and finishes school and has full time job or about the death of friend (Why´d You Have to Die which is dedicated to Christopher Drelinger from Bad Engrish and Frontline Attack). Super is that all band members sing especially April because female vocal in the background makes good sound (like Grind Me Down). Nice is also the cover – ghost of the servant girl and also inside where the lyrics are put into the style of newspapers from the 19th century. There are also information nabout the case, victims, suspects and band photo. Perfect album!

Östra Aros - s/t

Switchlight/RPO Records - LP -


1188_ostra_aros.jpgSecond album from Swedish band based in Upsala is out due to cooperation of Switchlight Records and RPO Records and i tis limite to 300 copies on black vinyl. First album was called Upsala and it was released just by RPO Records. The band plays in four with one skinhead and three dirty rockers with walrus mustache like Hulk Hogan – skinhead sings and the rest také care about the music. On LP are 12 songs in Swedish. Album is opened with song called Ärrad Själ (Scarred Soul) and it really shows you the band style and force you to listen the other songs. Song is lead by Frederik´s vocals, refrain is great singalong where the rest of the band sings and guitar with steel sound. Guitar shows you also great solos like in second song UA Skins. LP continues with songs called Åsiktsmaskinen (or Tangentbordskrigare which can be translated like Keyboard Warrior with nice rnr guitar), Raka Rör, Sveriges Stolthet (Pride of Sweden with viking rock beginning and great refrain again), Kröka I Parken (which is the slowest from LP and i tis true blues/southern rock mainly at the end), Vad Var Det Som Hände Igår (What Happened Yesterday), För Lång & Trogen Tjänst (with nice refrain again), Du Är Död För Mig (You Are Dead for Me), Fylla & Grova Ord (with nice rnr beginning like from Chuck Berryho) and Frihetshymn (Hymna svobody). I really like songs UA Skins and Sveriges Stolthet. Cover i salso fine and it combines band logo with Upsala coat of arms. Inside is sleeve on LP with lyrics (just in Swedish) and band logo. On the backside of the cover is band photo on cannn battery. If you like bands like Projekt 9, Sabotage, Dead Nation from Finland (with similar line up), Oldfashion Ideas spiced up with dirty bikers rock´n´roll this is straight for you. For me big surprise because I don´t know the band before and full points because it really won´t bore you at all.
