Crucial Change - The Fire Next Time

Combate Brutal Records - LP -


1204_cc_fire.jpgFourth album from this Seattle based band is finally out on vinyl (I even don´t know if CD was released because on discogs it is not mentioned) thanks to Combate Brutal Records from Portugal. Compared to the CD there are three bonus songs . – Absolution (released on Oi! the Tape 2), Missing Page and The Choice. Songs like Solidarity, The Watcher, 7/26 and The Final Call you may know from The Watcher tape released in 2016. Song Forgotten Identities was released on split EP with Albert Fish. Together there are 15 songs. The band was reviewed on BB many times so we can skip the introduction. Musically it is perfect and songs are really well done – just check tracks like The Final Call, The Watcher, Hand in Hand, July 26, The Time, etc... There is no weak piece and everything fits together. Lyrics are very critical to capitalist system which is not ok for many workers (songs like Solidarity, Dignity) but also supporting of the Kurdish movement (Hand in Hand) where I have personal problem with the end of the song and shout PKK because speaking about freedom and liberty together with communist party is incomprehensible for me (real communism and other bullshit and craps). The same goes with the song 26thJuly which is about Fidel Castro movement 26-7. Cover is perfect with many nice illustrations from the book Devises Heroiques (1556) which contains many illustrtations for coat of arms or guilds. LP is limited to 200 copies (two cover versions) with paper with lyrics inside and some band photos. Musically it is perfect but there is some ideological shift compared to previous records ( (Legion 33 – Rockin´ the Reds...).

Faction - S - s/t

Combate Brutal Records - LP -


1203_faction_s.jpgDemo tape of this French band was release in 2019 on Le Diable Au Corps label and now it is out as single sided LP through Combate Brutal Records. Together on side A you may check seven songs in French and last piece is cover from NY sXe band Judge (which was originally released as New York Crew). In band plays members from well known bands like Lion´s Law, Bromure, Chrome Reverse, Outreau or Tchernobyl. The band says that they are playing negative Oi!. It is middle/slower rhythm with hard vocals and darker sound with light guitar solos. Songs are called Soleil de Plomb (Burning Sun), Zéro (Zero), Croire (Belive), Poseur, Marée Noire (Black Tide), Pierre Tombale and B.S.C. From the first song the band hits you really hard on the chin and it´s a pitty that the B side of this LP is empty. Sound is raw but quality, other members help vocalist Fred in singalongs (like in Zéro or Croire) and bass is really significant (like in Pierre Tombale where are bass and guitar solos together at the beginning). LP was limited to 200 copies (100 with black cover and 100 with white cover). Inside is paper with lyrics plus graphics from drummer Tonio and some band photos. Check them, you won´t be disappointed and bored.
