(record review)MENTAL STRIKE-“Final-E”

It took a long time to be released, but it is finally here. The debut Mental Strike record!

This band comes from Laško area, Slovenia. They play old school skatepunk with a lot of old school hardcore influences. When I saw them play live in Lendava, Slovenia couple of years ago, the reminded me a lot of Gorilla Biscuits not so musically but they somehow have the same energy as GB have. This album contains 9 songs with all of the lyrics in English language. The themes are some great mix of personal and political issues. The song structures, especially guitars also have some metallic influences and this album is the lesson how to play modern but old school hardcore punk, not to sound to mellow or like a clone. In my opinion the absolute highlights of this album are “Start Today” and “My Final Resolution”.

8,5/10
