(album review)A VULTURE WAKE-“The appropriate level of outrage”(Bird Attack Records)

When I first heard about A Vulture Wake I knew that this will be an awesome record. Bird Attack Records has done a great job releasing this and it is time to sit back, listen and review this baby.


We wont be wrong if we say that A Vulture Wake is a kind of punk supergroup.  Formed in 2016. the band features the current or former members of All, Drag the River, Lagwagon, RKL, Good Riddance, Real McKenzies and The Mag Seven. The record is very strong for a debut album. It contains 10 songs of melodic punk with some hardcore influences. The songs are very technical and these guys know how to play their instruments with all their experience on the scene. For me the overall vibe of the album was somehow sad and somber which is good and in some weird way that reminded me of No Use For A Name. Not musically, no way, but in the vibe and maybe the lyrics too. I dont have the lyric sheet or booklet but I can follow the lyrics good enough while listening that I know that it is a fine mix of political and personal with more weight given to the personal side. It is very hard to name some highlight songs from the album but for me it would be “Circle of Friends” and “Secrets”. Great album!
