(record review)Belgian sludgy metal and punk coming your way MISSILES OF OCTOBER-“Better Days”(Pogo Records/EBUS Music)

MOO_DIGIFILE-pochette v2-1

Missiles of October come from Brussels, Belgium and are playing dirty version of punk mixed with noise rock and stoner influences. They were formed in 2012.and until now made quite a name for themselves playing a lot of gigs and sharing the stages with a number of well known acts. This album contains 10 song of relentless, angry punk played with conviction. With titles like “No Brain, No Headache” you get your daily dose of greasy and angry almost Black Flag-ish punk ending in sludgy swampy guitar parts and thunderous drums. This record should be played very loud! I always loved European sludge bands because they sound different somehow than their American counterparts. On this record there are many song structures with noise parts like in “Satisfaction in Nothing” which is the perfect blend of noise and punkish dirty riffs.  As I understand the lyrics are pretty gloomy and hopeless but with also with certain amount of irony and humour. My personal favourite of this record is “Better Days”, an uptempo song which I played a couple of times in a row.  This is a fine record and there is a cassete, vinyl, cd and digital version so grab your copy and support the guys by showing some internet love for their page, maybe book them a gig or two or something.
