They´re back! This is the first Satanic Surfers new studio record in 13 long and bloody years!
Swedish skatepunk legends finally treated us mortals with new record and by God it is awesome! I loved every single second of it! The record contains 10 tracks of energetic and melodic pumping skatepunk melodic hardcore. I love Rodrigo´s voice since the early Satanic Surfers/Intensity days and he sounds better than ever! From the fast paced openers “The Usurper” and “Catch my breath” which is one of my favourites on this record we witness tight songwriting. metallic and melodic hooks and changes in song atmosphere but retaining that uplifting fist pumping in the air vibe. “Self medication” is midtempo song to let us rest a while but then the true gems of the record strike! “All gone to shit” and “Ain´t no ripper” are fast melodic anthems and I can´t wait to see and hear these guys live finally, since I missed them back in the days in the 90-ies. In “Madhouse” all Rodrigo´s singing beauty comes out in vocal melody carrying the song. “Going nowhere fast” reminds a lot of old days of second half of the 90-ies when I first heard these guys and their awesome music. “Paying tribute” has some of the harshest and at the same time nicest skatepunk sound that I have heard and great chorus. When I heard “Pato Loco” I considered it a weird metalic technical song, which I guess it is with a lot of solo guitars and not so much lyrics. Last but not least, the title track is an anthem in itself and absolutely one of the best if not the best song on this record! An awesome comeback!
