Now, I'm two years older than punk is and I haven't followed the genre that well. I know the greats, Ramones and Sex Pistols and I know some punk rock, pop punk and hardcore bands. I'm not going to mention any of those here because none of them really are relevant to what I'm hearing at the moment. Troglodydes might become one of my new favorite punk bands, mainly because of of the attitude and the rough, unpolished sound. In only eight minutes this London based band has succeeded in bringing the genre back to the fast, pissed-off and brutal counter-attack it was in the first place.
There's ten songs on this e.p. All of them are short, ultrafast pieces of hardcore punk with a kickass attitude and a huge middle finger to modern-day society and the musical industry. There's no room for complicated riffs or elaborate song structures. In stead, Troglodytes focuses on intensity and slapping their audiences in the face with ruthless aggression, both in music and in vocals. So, for the 'vintage' punk fans, this tape really is something for you. At least, if you hurry because there will only be fifty copies of this tape available.
It's true what they say, Punk never dies.
