Sweden has been the place with many awesome melodic punk bands all throughout 90-ies when I was a kid. Some of the bands reached legendary status and respect in the scene like No Fun At All, Satanic Surfers for example. This time we reviewed the record by De Lyckliga Kompisarna.
The record contains 12 songs with all of the lyrics being in Swedish, so I can˙t understand a word what they are singing about. The music is punkrock, but it gets a bit weird sometimes like in Ostronskal, mixture of ska and punk with some atonal even stoner melodies. There are some folkish/polka songs like Olika kulturklubbar that are for sure fun to dance to and listen, maybe live also fun as hell. Don˙t get me wrong, there are awesome straight forward punkrock songs on this record like Johanna for example. This record has some great moments, besides the weird ones, but that versatility makes this record good.
Italian punk/hardcore act PESTE has revealed a new track called “Mercy”, first single taken from the upcoming self-titled EP available in 7″ and digital format in the first part of 2019 via This Is Core. The track was recorded and mixed at Magma Studio of Turin by Davide Donvito, and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker…) at The Atomic Garden Studio in San Francisco. About “Mercy” the frontman Marco Fresia says: “‘Mercy’ talks about God, about the merciful and charitable God who has condemned us to live a very happy and enchanting life on this Earth. It is a song that speaks of how we can not wait to see and relive the return of his favorite son to show him all our gratitude with nails, hammers and crosses”. Listen “Mercy”at this LINK.
PESTE is the union of musicians taken from the italian underground scene. A new punk/hardcore project with members of Tutti I Colori Del Buio, Haram, If I Die Today and Papazeta. Violence, negativity and hate against mankind are the keywords for describe their work. In their fast five pieces Peste deal with the brutal horror hidden inside of everyone soul, the human ability of destroying everything all around without no remorse remaining a slave of fear till death. A truly daily and deeply nightmare inside every human being.
