Bash Brothers and Their ‘Life Lessons’.

Bash Brothers – Eksjö, Sweden. The moment I saw this request in our inbox, I found myself transfixed, determined and reaching for my “objective hat”. Why? Well in truth, any self respecting modern Punk fan can’t possibly ignore anything in the way of Punk-Rock from the country of Sweden, the country...

Stupid Karate – The ‘Punk Is A Free Pricing Corpse’ EP.

Stupid Karate – Lille, France. Stupid Karate have returned with their second EP, the comically dark titled Punk Is A Free Pricing Corpse. The band’s visceral break-neck Hardcore Punk is nothing but energetic. Imagine, you’ve had a hard week at work and friend drags you to a Punk show, you’re not adverse...

Bogans and The ‘Uno Mas!’ EP.

Bogans – Wrexham, Wales, United Kingdom. The term Bogan is actually one used for the Australian equivalent of a British Chav or an American hick but that’s just a unrelated fact designed to break the worded ice of this review and I think it went quite well. Bogans in this...

Despereaux and The ‘Cursed’ EP.

Despereaux – Oslo, Norway. Upon reading that Despereaux hailed from Norway, I expected heavy and heavy was what I indeed received but in a manner that far out-weighed the band selling themselves as simply a Hardcore band. Cursed is their third release in total and see’s the band play with their...

Bokassa – ‘Divide & Conquer’.

Bokassa – Trondheim, Norway. Cover photo credit: Erlend Lånke Solbu. Bokassa hail from Norway and they play some form of Rock music. Now even after hearing the words “Norway” and “Rock Music” you know (or rather you should) that you are about to witness something not for the feint of...

Sifting Through It All With WRCKG and Their Self-Titled EP.

WRCKG – Utrecht, The Netherlands. (Above) Photo Credit: David Hup. We’re in Utrecht once more for another shining band in both the Dutch music scene and indeed European sphere, WRCKG. The band got in touch with us after our article on equally loud contemporaries , Dock 83 who you can find...

Scornthroats and The ‘Misfortune’ LP.

Scornthroats – Cagliari, Italy. Scornthroats, formally Rise After Defeat, have been releasing music since 2011. Music that is perhaps only really best described as utterly visceral organised chaos, that is barely confined within an amalgamation of Hardcore Punk, Crust Punk and riffs that touch upon the not so distant shores...
