Diverze - Zeměpláč

DIY - CD -

1304_diverze_zeme.pngAfter their debut album tvoje volba (Your Choice) which was released only in cardboard sleeve came Diverze from the city of Kralupy with brand new CD with 11 songs in Czech in regular pack. Playtime is around about 35 minutes and they play in classic four piece line up. The band touches classical topics in their songs like football (Fotbal), beer (Pivo - Beer), paying the bills by money from hard work (Working Class, V jednom kole – Bustle About), patriotism (Blaničtí rytíři – Knights from Blaník, Diktatura - Dictatorship, Zeměpláč – Cry of Land) but also unusual topics like Allied bombing of their city at the end of the WWII (Kralupy 1945), human who is destroying his only planet (Parazit - Parasite) or most famous prisoner in Britain (Bronson). They know how to play faster tracks (Diktatura, Blaničtí Rytíři, Starej pes – Old Dog) but also great melodical tunes (Zěměpláč or Parazit – which is the best tune from the album for me from the music but also from the lyrics point of view or Kralupy 1945). Diverze also works well with spoken word in their songs (again songs mentioned above or Bronson) which gives them new dimension. Also there are many singalong refrains. Guitar has some cool solos in Bronson, Working Class or Zeměpláč. Musically it is classic Oi!Punk which can be compred with our bands like Pilsner Oiquell, Nápoi!ka or Neparkovat vjezd, etc…. Cover of the CD is drawn with all lyrics inside, some band photos and dedication to a friend which is not with us anymore. You can listen it on online platforms or you can buy it for circa 12 Euros through Diverzecrew@seznam.cz. Nice piece which some songs which really surprise me.

Out of Order - Under the Knife

Randale Records/Bad Report Productions - CD -

1303_ooo_utk.pngFifth album of this Montreal based band is out Randale Records on CD/LP (black and red-black) and the band went through Europe in Max 2023 to promote this album. On album are 10 songs in faster middle rhythm with perfect bass which has perfect solos in the bacground in each song – just check Under the Knife, where bass solo is changing perfectly with guitar one. The band plays with two guitars and you will hear it for sure. Vocals are melodical and all words are heard clearly and in song Cain you may hear also higher leveles of singers voice. Songs have mostly happy melodes but sad topics sometimes (Crack in the Mirror) and there is also classic rnr tune – Saint and Sinners. Next perfect piece is Valley of the Wolves or Breonna with interesting HC rhythm in strophes, nice singalong refrain and perfect solo again. The last piece on the album is called Halfway to Nowhere which is the slowest song from the album (or better to say there are two rhythms in the song – slower and faster) and you may hear also keyboards in it. To LP is added paper sheet with lyrics. Nice one.
