"To shred gnar, to bash the white wave, to thrash the snow, to rock out wicked hard, to ride copious amounts of white pow so hard, others are in awe of your steez. Can be used to describe any action in which you do something awesome to the extreme, however should not be used lightly."This is the text the bio opens with and is for you to figure out the meaning of. I gave up. So let's go and face the music.
Out of my speakers rolls wave after wave of powerful punkrock. The kind that aims for writing the perfect popsong. The kind that makes you want to jump up and down to. The kind that invites shouting along to. And succeeds A whole album long. It sounds familiar as fuck, but who cares. The songs are so tight, so rocking hard and so good. Musically I've written enough right here and now. This is all you need to know.
But where does all this come from? To my total and utter surprise from that part of The Netherlands where the protestant menbrothers and aldermen still have a lot to say. Where the biggest political party until very, very recently did not allow women to be on its list of representatives. The town of Alblasserdam hosts the best punkrock band I have ever heard from this country.
Van Luttikhuizen's voice is the kind that keeps the band human. No supernatural shouting, no wailing. It's only party time. Behind him Tusky lays down a solid sound where every once and again a lead guitar is allowed to escape from. Even if it is a single note in overdrive, it is enough as an accent.
I'd say you know enough. In it's sort this is a ***** star album. So if you like the genre go and check it out yourself.
