Dead Cells - I LP

Dead Cells out of Vancouver do it dark, desperate, and minimal. An archaic sound from the gothic ages of punk - when punk was catchy, but also dangerous. Going back to the three chord song, with downstrokes, vicious energy, and the two minute deadline. Sacred by the outstaning artwork, it's night church in the post apocalyptic wasteland. Their first LP and follow-up to their 2018 demo tape which was overheared by many people.

Desperation, angst and frustration pepper the words that twist and turn like daggers to the back of emperors. Twin guitar attacks carry melody and smart chord changes backed by a rhythm section that runs the risk of falling off the edge of the cliff. It's complimented by a brooding vocalist that half shouts-half sings.

You are welcome to dismiss this as some more of that melodic punk that you are too cool to admit that you like, but you would be a fool. Yes, the songs are catchy, and yes Dead Cells will get stuck in your head and even sometimes put a spring in your step, but this shit is deep and these songs are as close to utter brilliance as I can ever remember hearing.

This goes way, way beyond the “punk kids playing post punk” thing going around these days. The tone of the songs, and of the album as a whole, is just as important as the content of the songs themselves. The guitar is somehow bright and dark at the same time. Chorus and reverb effects give it a shimmer, but distortion and minor and diminished chords dull that shimmer enough to keep everything nice and dark. It’s like a beefed up version of an 80’s post-punk bands’ sound. The drums are tight throughout and the bass is dark and punchy as well. All of this is behind spooky male lead vocals.

Dark, anxious, paranoid, manic, obsessive, melodic, misanthropic, gothy, punk - Don't sleep on this.

Knugen Faller - Lugna Favoriter CD

Knugen Faller - Lugna Favoriter CD

Perhaps it´s from liking and listening to a lot of Otis Redding, but Knugen Faller, who could easily be placed in the throwback ghetto and dismissed as solely a Swedish band who likes X-Ray Spex, Josie Cotton, and the Go-Gos, have a ton of soul. Sung entirely in Swedish, it gave me more time to just enjoy the structure of the songs. Aside from the more obvious punk and new wave sign posts,…

From Ashes Rise/Victims - Split LP

From Ashes Rise/Victims - Split LP

US-import! From Ashes Rise plays dark, slightly metallic hardcore that is not unlike early His Hero Is Gone mixed with Scandinavian hardcore like Skitystem and 80's UK crust like Antisect. Drawing on those influences From Ashes Rise has moved this sound into it's own territory so to simply label it "Tennessee style" hardcore would be oversimplifying their sonic progression.…

Deny - Dystopia LP

Deny - Dystopia LP

My God what a good it is and the record is already sailing up as this year's Swedish hardcore record already. Imagine your Anti-cimex with a better sound to make you understand who have not heard the group at all about how it sounds. So damn good and angry music it's been a long time since I heard.

I exercise to the record and it is a perfect record to work out to. Gives so much…
