Drunktank recently released their new record and I listened and reviewed it for our zine.
The Dutch skatepunks were founded in 2003.and this new record is a continuation of their 2010.album The Infamous Four. The ten songs on this record are just what I love having in my skatepunk hardcore. Fast, melodic, mighty and energetic with enough metalic efficiency and harmonies to still be punk and not to go too much into progressive waters. I am awed by this record it is so mighty. I was practicaly blown apart by We Want More being almost a mixture of hardcore punk and European school of epic and fast melodic power metal. These guys really know how to handle their instruments, not to mention epic melodies, anthemic choruses with many backing oooos and aaaas just made for singalong. Unfortunately I missed the guys playing Beach stage at this year´s Punk Rock Holiday, because I am sure they are an unstoppable force when playing live. From the songs, although all of them are powerhouses, I must recommend Hammer Of Justice, Courage Of A Few and Darker Side as my highlights of the record. This one is for sure one of the best melodic punk hardcore records of this year!
