The latest reviews:

Horda - Odeio Pessoas

Combate Brutal - LP -

1316_horda_odeio.jpgSecond full albim from this Portuguese band/project is out again on their home label Combate Brutal in two versions limited to 100 copies each and each with different cover. Title of the album can be translated like I Hate People. Together there is ten songs in their native language and except classical instruments you may hear also saxophone and keyboards, which I really like! Playtime is around about 23 minutes. The first song Morte Lenta (Slow Death) kicks you straight into the balls – fast rhythm, saxophone, perfect bass line and rough vocals. Second one Batalhas (Battles) continues in the same line and the other songs on side A Parasita and Bootboys (with perfect shouted refrain) also. Mundo de Betão (Concrete World) which is the last piece on the A side is slower song with keyboards. Side B is opened with Regeneração (Regeneration) which starts also with keyboards and bass and together with the previous one these are the best songs from the album. Then came Código de Honra (Code of Honour) which is faster, Boneco (Puppet) withs poken word, Nós Contra Eles (Us Against Them) and the last one Odeio Pessoas (I Hate PEople). So the rhythm is slower and keyboards and sax gives rto this album really 80´s Oi!/RAC spirit. Inside is A2 poster with perfect graphics, lyrics and thankslist. If you like Combate Brutal production and bands like Núcleo Duro or Gume which aren´t afraid to do experiments with sax and keyboards and which have really dark and gloomy sound you will love this album. It´s a pitty that this is (probably) just studio project.

Strongarm and the Bullies - Drive On

Rebellion Records - LP -

1315_satb_do.jpgAfter19 (!!!) years came this band from South California with brand new full album. In line up are just two original members (singer Eric and guitarist Jared) plus Caleb on guitar, girl Chalon on bass (Toughskins, Bedlam Knives) and drummer Chris (Voodoo Glow Skulls, Autorithy Zero). On album you may check 12 new songs of perfect streetrock with faster tunes (Shit Show, Sail Away), melancholic ones (blues pieces My Disease, or the beginning of White Crosses which came later into standard rhythm), r´n´r stuff (Fame and Fortune, Sinner of Saint, Red, White and Blue) and in the last song Honor Among Outcasts (which is one of the best pieces from the LP and which is about the fact that we don´t need your plastic smiles, credit cards and houses because it is all fake) you will hear Twisted Sister and their We're Not Gonna Take It. Interesting is the fact that the band built their own studio for recording. Cover is done by Johan Prenger (wolves on the front side of the album) and Ramon (who is responsible for the iron fist and the rest). LP is limited to 5000 copies (250 black and 250 transparent red), inside is paper with lyrics + band photos. This has really great drive!
