The latest reviews:


Bloody Mary - Poselství moci

DIY - CD -


1193_bm_pm.jpgThird album from this Brno based punk rockers is called Poselství moci (Message of Power) and it is released three years after their last album and again in DIY style. If you compare their line up with the last one they have change on bass and the rest is the same – four pieces with two guitars. Together you may check here 10 songs in Czech including cover from The Pride called Skinhead Girl (originally it is Princess for One Night). After the first (and also after many) listenings I have to say that the band really grow up and really worked hard on guitars and melodies. Also singer Rorýsek works well with his vocal so you may hear clear vocals (like in (Maskovaní machři – Masked Boffins) but also rougher one (like in the first one Exploze – Explosion). I also like bass which can be nicely heard in each song. Perfect is sonfg called Poselství (Message) with the beginning just with vocals and guitar and which is about destroying of the Earth. In song Přátelství (Friendship) you may hear mr. Špenát from Neparkovat Vjezd on vocals and also the rest of his band in refrains. Topic of the song is clear – friendship which is not obvious nowadays. On this song you may check also official video from 2017 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kwQPReQ0gs. The band knows how to play serious songs (like Hrdina – Hero about soldiers and their destiny which is in slower rhythm, Ráj – Paradise about migration to Europe – with this song the band will surely piss off many people but I think they have already did it :) or Baron which is about prime minister of our country and his communist past) but also funny pieces (like Vánoční – Xmas which is about all mess around Christmas – markets, buying, cooking, drinking and evening with family near Christmas tree or Černobílej svět – Black and White Word which is the anthem of tattoo artists who are putting their art on human bodies). Booklet is nice – lyrics (with mistakes but nobody is perfect), many band photo, thankslist and greetings. Nice album and thumbs up for the band evolution.

Coldside - Call for Justice

Demons Rum Amok Entertainment - EP -


1192_c_cfj.jpegOn Dutch label Demons Run Amok Enterntainment will be out EP of US band Coldside (1st November) with three new songs called Call for Justice (side A), Back Stab and Guns Up (side B). EP is limited to 300 copies on gold vinyl. First two songs has around about 2 minutes, last one has První dva songy mají něco přes dvě minuty, poslední asi 1:45. Kapela má za sebou čtyři dlouhá alba, z čehož poslední dvě .45. The band has already released four albums and last two are reviewed on BB. In band are playing ex members from Wardogs or Vietnom so you may expect good ol´ sincere HC. On long albums they have also songs which were pure streetpunk but this is not the case of Call of Justice EP so all three pieces are in hard´n´heavy cathegory. First song is heavy duty steamroller with nice singalongs and swinging/jumping changes in rhythm. Second one is faster and drums are more straightforward and the last one is with (I think) guest vocalist who has higher vocals than Chewface. At the end they are singing together. Cover reminds me the graphics on Euphemism LP from Hard Resistance. Who likes Ryker´s, Tech 9, Madball and other classics of the genre will love Coldside. The band should play in Europe in the first half of November (Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Belgium) but the tour was cancelled so they will play there in 2020.
