Review: xDELOREANx/xDUHx – Split

xDeloreanx and xDuhx, cannonade from Tuscany From Tuscany with violence, comes this split between xDeloreanx and xDuhx, two bands from the Italian powerviolence scene, a concentrate of badness, nonsense and punches on your teeth that in about thirteen minutes will fuck your eardrums and your brain without  mercy. We start with Delorean from Florence, with their powerviolence from the future, that smash our faces with five short and powerful tracks. The lyrics are in English,…

Review: Mind/Knot – Demo 2019

An excellent preview by Mind/Knot “This is our first demo version, fast and hammering, in old 80’s hardcore/punk style ”: this is the presentation of the band Mind/Knot, from Rome; shortly: 7 tracks, 7 concentrates of energy, 7 minutes and something more of really good punk music! The album starts at full speed with Don’t Give up, it is immediately clear that there is no fucking around here! All the seven tracks are in English, it…

Review: Pressa – Irresponsabilmente

True Working Class Oi! from the West Coast It’s already been one year since it was released, but this record by Pressa, a band from the province of Rome, is still fucking hot: the ideal album for Oi and street punk lovers, with melodies and choruses that immediately stick in your mind, and genuinely Working Class lyrics. In the songs on “Irresponsabilmente“, the band narrates the daily life of  those who wake up every morning…

Review: Strung Out – Songs of Armor and Devotion

Strung Out: the return of the Giants Any melodic hardcore lover who has been living on Earth during the last 30 years surely knows at least one album by Strung Out, and will be curious to hear their new album “Songs of Armor and Devotion“. Obviously published by Fat Wreck Chords (a regular partner by now), this album creates an ideal link to “Agents Of Underground” (2009) thanks to the excellent production by Cameron Webb, who…
