*** SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT for the "WHITE NIGGERS" by EYE HATE GOD the founding fathers of SLUDGE CORE ***

Hey folks, last post of this month and a next one of the 'Videos' category, and also yet another one to introduce a new band to this very blog. I'm talking about no one else than the absoultely great and legendary and just immortally insane and also damn immortally awesome EYE HATE GOD, the damn most important and popular and also (if you ask me) best-known and very, very best Sludge Core (or maybe also Sludge Metal... or just Sludge...) bands ever, hm, and maybe also the founding fathers of this style. I came pretty much deep down into Doom and after this then especially Sludge music from sometime back in the later middle of the 1990's years, especially EYE HATE GOD became a sheer force to me, and I always stayed true to it and always held and hold it (and again especially EYE HATE GOD) close and dear to the heart. Over the last years I grew a little bit out of it, nah, I haven't grown out of it, no, I've just listened not that much to it over the last years. But after some years ago I listened for the first time to ARSON ANTHEM (and their Sludge influences) I really 'grew again strongly deep down into it', yehp, and over the last months it made really "Bang!" again, and this you can really experience by reading through some of the entries of the last one or two months here on this very blog. And yes, so I decided to do finally a honour and tribute post to, of and about EYE HATE GOD (it's really about time that I do this anyhow), and after pretty often the 'Videos' postings here on this very blog are also more or less tribute posts as well as introduction posts I do it now (again) this way, with a 'Videos' posting. I really loved and still love their style, perfect Sludge Core music, stuff of one of a kind, awesome (un)holy shit!!! Doom Metal, Blues, Southern Rock, some Hardcore and some Noise Rock to it, hell yeahr, that was and still is really outstanding and outshining stand-alone musick of the most brutal and most heavy as well as of the most extreme and most emotional kind (even and especially without playing it all with just looking at the pace of the songs) of music that was ever developed and played on this rotten soil. Is it "DOPESICK", like the title of one of their (and maybe their very, very best) record/-s ever says?!? Hell yeahr, it is!!! Is it extreme and sick and nothing for the weak hearted out there?!? For fucks sake, yeahr, damn it is!!! Is it really stand-alone music?!? You can bet your ass on that!!! And yes, for better or for worse, had been the members of and in the band guys that lived it all to the extreme, that always practised what they've preached?!? Damn fucking yeahr, and they still do it!!! And that's great, even it's maybe in some cases not good and more bad it's still great, no damn plastic fakeass rock musicians, just the pure real deal, just great!!! I love this music, and I can't really tell ya what especially EYE HATE GOD meant and still mean to me and I really hope desperatly that finally a new album of them will coming out some near day in the hopefully near future!!! (Announced it is already.) And now just enjoy the three videos that I've chosen for ya, a live video clip of EYE HATE GOD playing and performing "WHITE NIGGERS" live on stage in Brooklyn (I think it must have been back then in 2006 or so), the video clip of and to their incredible great anthem "SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT", and also a little video clip (even this one isn't really a 'real' video clip anyhow anyway...) of "MY NAME IS GOD (I HATE YOU)", and yes, again, now just enjoy the clips and songs and with this also this stand-alone awesome band!!! Phenomenal!!!

HOLY TERROR style metallic Hardcore from out of Los Angeles, California/U.S.A.

Hey folks, I've discovered a new band and that's just great, pure "HOLY TERROR" style, brutal metallic Hardcore in the tradition of the almighty INTEGRITY and other great acts of this kind, like for example FEAR TOMORROW. I'm currently in a hurry so I have to keep this one here ridiculously short, I know, but you get some few informations in the video (again done by me, myself and I) itself, and if you like this great style of Hardcore music then check these guys out (for example directly here with the posted video) and enjoy it!!! Hopefully I'll be able to get there debut (?) EP (on 7'' vinyl?) pretty soon (maybe even from somewhere around over here in Germoney) and then there will also come more about them. The EP was released via "GOOD LIFE RECORDS"... hm, or was it "GOOD TIMES RECORDS"... ah, anyhow, something like this, haha;-), you get the correct informations about that all at the beginning of the now following and up and coming little video clip. Okay, I think that's it for now, yehp, that's all for now, time's up and live-music is calling me to the city of Braunschweig, so yehp, check it out!!! Great stuff!!! Cheers & Oi!

In the DEVOID OF REDEMPTION all hailing THE LEGEND on a sinister and deadly GLOOMY SUNDAY here during our last days on earth...

PALLBEARER - "2010 D.E.M.O."
("D.I.Y."; MP3-Download):
Here's coming something really great and some damn intense stuff. I got aware of this band, PALLBEARER from Little Rock in Arkansas (?), U.S.A, thanks (again) to the phenomenal "AVERSIONLINE" blog and after I think it's pretty much impossible for me to (still) get this demo (I think it was released as a tape, just to tell it to ya btw, but I'm not so sure about it all) that was limited to just something around 120 copies, yehp, and so I think it should be already all sold out today, and so I just call the download my own. Anyhow... ah, but before I forget it, there shall already a full length release of PALLBEARER be announced for 2011 to be released via "SHADOW KINGDOM RECORDS", so keep your eyes open. What we get here from PALLBEARER are at all three songs that manage to come in in something about 23 minutes, and this 23 minutes give ya some of the best Doom (Metal) that could be heard for years. And yes, it's Doom (Metal), no Sludge (Core) and no Stoner (Rock), just pure and also pretty traditional Doom. You get a lot of influences of the founding fathers of BLACK SABBATH, as well as some good impressions of the american Doom legends of TROUBLE, and so you maybe have already a pretty good imagination of what's going on right here. Slow pace, great grapping songwriting, awesome intense and 'deep' atmosphere, yeahr, that's what I'm talkin' 'bout, even the pace is all the time very slow and deep-down (even not 'artificially-slow', it's all damn alive and fresh and pulsating) here gets nothing boring, really nothing, and that's just so incredible damn great, yes, that is it!!! Very, very strong stuff!!! Great drones, a not too strong distorted bass (pretty present, pretty clean), forceful pu(ni)shing drumming, great wall-of-sound guitar riffing combined with brilliant solos and sick lead work, and suffering clean vocals, that remind me pretty much of TROUBLE, that's what's making the music of PALLBEARER, and that's what's giving the music of PALLBEARER such a phenomenal intense atmosphere and hypnotic effect, and this music will really grap your mind, your heart and soul and will take you with wherever it's directed to, it's just so damn great, Doom at its best, and really awesome strong songwriting (and how to play their instruments they do know anyhow)!!! Don't know what I shall say now more, it's just an outstanding strong Doom release by a very promising band that I would love to hear asap more from. Make sure you get it!!! And the official download link, authorised by the band itself, you will find at the end of this review. That's it, someting pretty special and it's already really great, so damn fucking damn it, just give us more and that better yesterday than today, point and fact!!! Ah, btw, also a brilliant good done production sound, fascinating lyrics, hm, and about the artwork I can't really tell ya anything just that I know the great cover picture (?) that you can see above, haha;-). I want...I need... I demand more!!! Great stuff!!! Get it!!! I love it and I'm really getting again pretty deep into this wole fascinating world of Doom and Sludge. Just great!!! (9 of 10 points)
Now you get a live video of their awesome song "THE LEGEND", that you can find here on this demo by them, alongside the songs "DEVOID OF REDEMPTION" and "GLOOMY SUNDAY". The clip to "THE LEGEND" is a live video, and it's just fantastic so just damn enjoy it right now!!! Here it comes:

SLICK 46 - "YOUNG LOVE" (live)

Mr Floppy is pointing it all out...

Hey folks, now you get another nice little video clip up here, also taken by one of my all time favorite TV sitcom series, "UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER", and yes, MR. FLOPPY definitely is no one else but "THE MAN", hm, or maybe "THE BUNNY", who knows, haha;-)... It's a great scene, pointing out some of the major troubles (and damn sure not only of the U.S.A., listen to it- keep in mind, the series is already something about over an decade old, so it says a lot about it- I can't stop thinking about our 'oh-so-great' german society...) of our time, harhar;-). Watch it, enjoy it!! By the way, as well as there will be coming some new "MARRIED WITH CHILDREN" posts in the future, there will also be coming some more new "UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER" posts in the future, trust me upon this;-). What's else left to say?!? I'm working pretty fucking hard and damn much and often this weeks, yehp, and as a matter of fact I really rather use to spend the rare free time I have with my Girlfriend, my sports, my family, my dog, and my friends then with 'going-virtual', yes, so I really don't find currently that much time to do so many new posts here (or other 'outside-of-this-blog' linked to music, scene, subculture, etc. things) the last days (maybe weeks), but the BEST DEFENSE posting is pretty much done (talking about the 'American Oi! History Series'), DENNIS WOLF will finally become a part of this very blog here pretty soon (talking about 'Sports', finally again), new reviews will be up next (INTEGRITY, A TRAITOR LIKE JUDAS, SOCIAL DISTORTION, BRIAN SETZER & THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA, CALVIN RUSSELL, PALLBEARER, R*U*S*T, etc.), and also more-new-review-and-other-stuff will be online to read as soon as (anyhow) possible. So for now I'll say this day pretty soon next up good bye and so to all of you good night and I'll go now to bed, and if you're still awake reading this then don't miss now MR. FLOPPY in action, and we will read us soon again here at this place, on this very blog here, and until then: Keep it going even if the going gets tough!!! Oi! Oi! Oi!

Hey folks, time's up for the immortally great BEST DEFENSE, one hell of a great and stand-alone old tyme American Oi! band from out of the mid to late 1980's years. I'll do a proper posting to honour them pretty soon the next days (don't think I'll have it down today or tomorrow, but the next days pretty soon) as the next part of the 'American Oi! History' Series here on this very blog, so for now just as a little introduction of and to them a video to their larger-than-life antem "ARMED WITH THE TRUTH", my personal total favorite one of them. I've done the video by myself, and yehp, you are right, if that videos is not worthy to get some Oscars or so then I don't know what else should be worth it anyhow;-).

Next 'Videos' post, next new band up here, next 'new' music-genre, ha, the work up here is even more precise and reliable than a clock made in the Switzerland;-). I knew this band quite for a while, and... uh, just that you know it, we're talking here 'bout the band of the name of YOG... So, yehp, like I've said, I knew this band for some years now, and what shall I say, if you are at least only a little bit interested in really very damn fucking outstanding extreme music(k), that's also filled completly with emotions and a healthy dose of madness, done by musicians that can play their instruments and write grapping, interesting and damn demading songs so easily like other guys only can change their underwear from day to day, and if you're on the search or even on the hunt for some truly damn awesome and totally autonomous music(k) that showcases the mentioned trademarks, yeahr, fuck it, than check these guys out, YOG, because they are all this and even much and far more than this, and trust me, they will take you by storm like they did it with me. Damn it, I love this stuff!!! And yes, it's Grindcore, but what a statement of it it truly is!!! Grindcore, Mathcore, Chaoscore, Hardcore, Post-Core, (Free) Jazz, Fusion, Avant-Garde, Progressive, some few extreme Metal stuff, some pretty few Noise Core impressions, and what the hell else ever, all melted together in one hell of a musical statement of the highest ever only possible class, coming to you out of the Grindcore genre. Check them out!!! And here you now get a clip of them, one live clip that features two songs of them played live by them, YOG performing and playing their two phenomenal tracks "BREAKING THE SPELL" and "MERGE" melted together into one, and also all played live on stage and this also damn strong and unbelievable great. And then, yes, then support them, buy their stuff, asap, point and fact!!! Phenomenal!!!



And now you'll get also another song played and performed live by YOG, it's their incredible strong slasher "DARK BLISS", really a monster of a song. This song respectively this live video of them was taken by shot in 2008 when YOG destroyed the city of Lyon, France, firing their live set down from the stage!!! Enjoy!!!


YOG - "DARK BLISS" (live) (2008) (Lyon)

South Florida's Finest, the mighty HOWITZER on the attack!!!

Hey folks, you now get (again...) a little 'Videos' category posting and this time to introduce and present the mighty HOWITZER from South Florida here on this very blog. I really like this band a lot, hard and heavy, dirty rockin' and 'partly' pretty 'hardcore-ish' American Oi! sound from out of the heat of Southern Florida. You should do everything to get your hands on (at least) their "POLICE STATE" record and also especially on their brilliant "TURNCOAT" 7'' vinyl single (if ya still have the chance to do so). I now give ya their official video clip to their great sheer force anthem "CONSPIRACY", as well as two live videos of them playing covertunes of the legendary COCK SPARRER, "SUNDAY STRIPPER" and "WHERE ARE THEY NOW" (and with both tunes they do a pretty good job for sure), and btw a great live performance also, trust me. The sound of the videos rocks also (the official one anyway, but also the two live songs come in through damn good, at least if ya ask me). Yes, and now just enjoy the clips of this great band and have some fun with it, and then try to get what you can get of this band, and that asap. Great band!!! I love this shit!!! Cheers & Oi!







And now you also get another song via another video clip of the damn mighty HOWITZER, no cover tune, but also a live tune. You now see and hear them playing and performing their neckbreaker "CAGED" live on stage, and the sound of the clip is pretty good even (or especially 'cause) it's fucking raw and dirty. Enjoy!!!



"Al, you landed on the field kiss the neighbor!" ... "Don't ya want your last minute instructions?" "Hahahahahaha...!!!"

Yeahr, folks, here we go on and on, straight ahead and forward. Now it's again time for some nice little clips showcasing some of the greatest moments of the greatest ever, no one else than AL BUNDY. This two clips or sequences are some of my total favorites, so just enjoy them (it should be all in english) and keep this great man in honor and save in your mind;-)!!! A rolemodel for all of us, haha, for sure;-)!!!

"Banging around in bars with guitars, dreaming the dream of being Punk stars, singing our songs of freedom from the hearts, drop the politics: Upstart!!!"

("Rebel Records"; CD):
Uh, uh, uh, and after YOUNGBLOOD no one else than BRUTAL ATTCK are coming. Beside or better after SKREWDRIVER the at the second position standing or ranked most well-known and anyhow legendary White Power NS Rock Against Communism band of all time, ha, and here you find the review of their current release. The leftist are crying out their hearts now how this can be possible and that this can't be true because again such a review of such a recod on a blog that's run by me a guy who's standing opposed to racism and fascism and anti-Semitism, etc. pp. and pretty much I'll be labeled as a 'Nazi-Lover' or something like this anyway, haha;-), and the right faggots, ha, I can see 'em swinging their fists and running their mouths how on a fucking PC red liberal zionist leftists blog like this the new record of one of their biggest super star groups ever and maybe their most legendary and still active band is being reviewed by a 'ZOG Bot' and a 'Nigga Lova' like me, haha;-), and to both sides I'll pretty much a damn fencewalker latest now, haha;-), but you know what, damn it all and despise them all, I fucking do what I want and I have no time for any of you jackasses out there and all your pseudo-political games, so go and fuck yourselfz and then get a real life and start to live it, I give a fuck about your Masterrace bullshit, lowlife scum like you really thinks to be anyhow supreme, ha, I can't stop laughing, as well as also about your World-Wide-Class-Less-Society-Unity crap, just open your eyes because there are so many crackheads out there with that at least I really don't want to be united anyhow and I'm proud of standing unbroken opposed to them all, to scum like for example all the Islamofascists out there with whom all you oh so anti-imperialistic leftwingers are best friends because they are against the oh so evil U.S.A. and the even more evil state of Israel, fuck you all, so yeahr, that's it, no time, no place, no energy for you and the fucked up mess you call your politics and you call your 'life', so just shut up and start living in reality, point and fact!!! So, okay, enough about this at all, and if you now feel yourself being meant, fuck, then this is your 'thing' you have to deal with, and maybe there is nothing to deal with at all because it's just your fault... Okay, back to the topic, now finally really, before I spit even more of my disgust (I feel when I look at all of you idiots from the right to the left and back from the left to the right and what you've done with and to the music, the attitude, the lifestyle I fell in love with and found so much in it, so much I was seeking desperatly for now more than one-and-a-half-decade ago or so, no matter if right or left, you won't destroy or kill it anyhow, trust me) here through my computer-keyboard on this blog. A deep breath, puh, yehp, and load, lock, and fire, here we go: After some years ago BRUTAL ATTACK released their last record "THE REAL DEAL" they are today back with their newest spawn "STRAIGH EIGHTS", it's released on the german (?) NS Rock label "REBEL RECORDS", and for what I know it's currently 'just' out on CD but I'm pretty sure that sooner or later in the future also an LP version will see the light of the day, we'll just have to wait for it, but don't ask me for how long this might may be, haha;-). I first listened to BRUTAL ATTACK... uh, damn it, that's now 'centuries' ago. Don't know, some-time back at the mid of the 1990's or so I guess. A former good friend... what am I talking, my very best friend for oh so many years (don't ask me how and why we went seperate ways some years ago, I thought about it pretty often but nothing comes to my mind at all, maybe it was just the way things and time went and maybe it all had to went this way anyhow...) made me known to them, and BRUTAL ATTACK (together with SKREWDRIVER) had been one of the very, very few White Power 14/88 NS Rock bands that knew to convince and to take me by storm, and still today I use to listen (sometimes more, sometimes less) to them, and ya know what, I always stood for it, never denied it (and why should I?!?) and I won't start with denying it now, still standing for it, even I always despised, opposed and fought (and that's meant the physical way of real man-versus-man fighting, not that AFA coward 'taking action' bullshit, and not the way of 'fighting with your words on the web' by spilling out defamation and lies) their political agenda (even BRUTAL ATTACK always used to have a lot of good lyrics, not your typical stupid WP/NS Rock bullshit all the time) and the supporters of it (beside some few guys that I really came to like very much, like my above mentioned best friend for a long, long time), yeahr, that's right, but anyhow and forget it all now, and so it was pretty clear that I would desperatly need to listen to it (after I've missed already "THE REAL DEAL" and this bullshit crap of KEN McLELLAN & ARROW CROSS and stuff like this, nah, keep this garbage in your can), and then I bought it and now I own and have it, and let me tell ya, I've been listening to it again and again, can't tell ya how often at all, and was it at first a dissapointment and I thought: "What a bunch of boring old farts rock songs...", ha, now-a-days I really have to say, it's great, maybe the best BRUTAL ATTACK record since "BATTLE ANTHEM (MORE TALES OF GLORY)", fucking damn great job Ken and his comrades (sounds damn fucking really like: "What a happy crew!", right, haha;-)...) have done here. When I get it right then most songs are done by Ken McLellan in 2007/2008, hm, but why the fuck it just comes out now?!? But okay, we will maybe never know, so anyhow... BRUTAL ATTACK are celebrating with this one their 30. birthday, or, like it's written in the booklet and on the CD, "30 Years of Rock" or "30 Years of Rock & Roll", and that description really fits 100%. Always a strong hard and heavy, dirty and aggressive rockin' and rollin' band, no typical Skinhead sound (no matter if left or right), no Oi! (especially no Oi!), no Streetpunk, no Skinhead Rock, no Skinhead Rock & Roll, just pure and through and through extreme right wing Rock (or Rock & Roll), White Pride Worldwide (racism), National Pride Worldwide (nationalism), Anti-Communism and Anti-Liberalism, Paganism to it as well, and always hailing the 'Children of the Reich' (...), that was and is the lyrical content of BRUTAL ATTACK, and straight and hard, dirty and earthy, well-grounded and brutal stomping, harsh and aggressive, but always also catchy and hymnal Rock (& Roll) was and is the music of BRUTAL ATTACK, and nothing else, hell yeahr, and nothing else we do get here, and thank the gods (the guys that seem to be out of a comic book and that shall be living somewhere up in the high if not highest north, I mean, what else did ya expect, haha;-)...) for that. The song very strong domiating guitar work, heavy riffing that's dictating the pace and the rhythm of the songs, as well as the mood and the atmosphere, awesome leads that will give you goosepimples and also outstanding damn strong solo work, great, the guitar playing is pure gold. Then we do also get a stoic and very save-in-timing, tight and fucking heavy, a beefy and bulky rhythm section, and yes, even sometimes especially the drumming could be a little bit more varying and diverse the rhythm work will hit you like a bulldozer and will hammer you deep down into the ground, it gives the music really its damn heavy punch. Then we do get this always incredible great and strong vocals, damn it, I just love this voice and style of singing, awesome shit!!! That's just great!!! And yes, especially when you're driving with your car and go just full throttle, even you're doing it the "GTA" style of doing this things, haha;-), and maybe especially when you're doing it all the "GTA" style, haha;-). Okay, some weaker songs are on board and sometimes I would wish that the songwriting would at least be a little bit more varying from time to time, but anyhow, that's all not so distorting the final outcome here at and after all. The definitive stand-alone and truly fuckin' strongest song is the very dirty and even more heavy Rock & Roll smasher "THE DEVIL LOOKED AT ME" (also damn great lyrics) that even the almighty AC/DC couldn't have done better at all (and that's a statement of one of a kind), and beside this larger-than-life anthem also and especially "HERE WE GO AGAIN" (where they steal the RAMONES' "GABBA, GABBA, HEY!" chant, haha;-), they lie, they cheat, they steal, haha;-)...), "ANALYSE THIS", "OLD No. 7 (LIQUID ROCK &ROLL)", "HEARTBEAT OF THE STREET", "UNBROKEN", and "WHEN THE HAMMER COMES DOWN" are just great hymns, but expect "HEY BROTHER" (again a song dedicated to ISD, really?!?...) also the other songs aren't bad or anything like this at all (even they are weaker than the mentioned ones, but not so much weaker at all...). The eye-catching Rock & Roll clichè artwork looks great (even it's damn colored, especially for a WP band, haha;-)...), but the production sound could really be more clear because that would benefit the outshining guitar playing even much more than this 'deep bass' production sound this album here calls its own. But okay, I guess we have to live with it;-)... Lyrically we get also much more diverse stuff than just songs and lyrics dealing with the somewhere here earlier and above mentioned issues, so that you also can discover a lot of good stuff going on at the lyrical front of this album as well. So, yes, that's all what there is to say to this record here, and hate me for it or not but if you're on the hunt for some damn strong pure Rock (& Roll) album, fuck it, despise their political agenda (or share it, damn it, there are enough Gestapo like thought scene police jackasses out there, bah, but I refuse to play their cheap and weak games anyhow), just get this record!!! Thumbs up!!! BRUTAL ATTACK, 30 years of Rock & Roll, the real deal, that's right!!! Get it!!! (9 of 10 points)
And now you get a nice little clip (done by myself, and yehp, it's again truly Oscar-nomination material, what esle, haha;-)...) of this incredible angry and heavy Rock & Roll stomper "THE DEVIL LOOKED AT ME", and also the lyrics (good stuff, damn good stuff), and so now just fucking enjoy it, and yes, spit venom right into its eyes, forever and ever!!!

The lyrics:

The video:




Hey folks, here's coming a new video for you, of one hell of a great band, no one else than the legendary STRIFE, brilliant and forceful Straight Edge Hardcore of that special 1990's kind of style and sound, raised by EARTH CRISIS and STRIFE and much more acts like them. Great stuff!!! Had always been very, very important to me, and they are still this damn important to me, to be honest, I think today even more than back then in the old times. You now get a live video of them playing their larger-than-life Straight Edge Hardcore anthem "FORCE OF CHANGE" live in 2008 in Montreal, Canada and on vocals there is a guy named Klint, the singer of REIGN SUPREME. It's a great live performance, even the vocals not really rule supreme anyhow anyway, haha, if ya know what I want to say, haha;-). Anyhow, enjoy it, great stuff!!! HARDCORE!!! STRAIGHT EDGE!!! FIST!!!




("Strong Survive Records"; CD):
And here it is, the more or less brandnew record release of the American WP R.A.C. band of the name of YOUNGBLOOD, respectively here's the review done by me of this record. For all what I know this songs here primarly had been recorded for a split with a (I would bet also) radical if not extreme right wing band ENDLESS PRIDE (or 'ENDLESS PAIN'... who knows...), but don't ask me what ever happened so that instead of this split now this solely YOUNGBLOOD record saw the light of the day. (But I don't care about it, because so I bought it, hm, and that I would maybe haven't done with the split at all, so it'S all good and fine with me, for sure.) Okay, I've wrtitten already enough about the band YOUNGBLOOD in the review of their precursor release to this one here called "OLD SCHOOL PRIDE", so I think I can spare me more or less every word more about it. If ya now cry about how I could review records of such a band, ha, take it like it is. We don't have to discuss what a giant piece of totally mentally degenrated and intellectual incestuous bullshit this whole WP/NS 14/88 crap is and we also don't have to discuss anything else about it, but take it like it is, I review the music for the music and so it's the case also here (even I won't say yes to this bullshit weltanschauung in any way) and what you now do with it that you have to decide for yourself. Hm, maybe it's comparable to CONFLICT or CRASS, what means that you have to decide what 'to do with them' also for yourself. (Oh, oh, oh, to mention CRASS and CONFLICT in a review of a record of a band like YOUNGBLOOD and this also in a way of a comparison, uh, I think I'm not making any friends with this in some certain parts of "the scene" or better "the scenes", haha;-)...!!!) So, okay, ah, two things left: 1.) This record is more political than "OLD SCHOOL PRIDE", at least a little bit anyhow, but the lyrics are pretty good stuff and also not too outspoken at all. (If ya wouldn't know about the background of YOUNGBLOOD you wouldn't notice a WP 14 connection, so calm down all you PC nerds, no really 'evil' stuff here and now, haha;-)...) 2.) Like "OLD SCHOOL PRIDE" I also decided to buy this one here, hm, but I think with my few bucks our proud aryans won't be able to start the White Revolution and lift 'our' Master Race on any throne of evolution or something like this. I think you got what I wanted to say, right?!? And that should be enough, yeahr, and so now onwards to this record and its review. Here we go: Released by the end of 2010 (at least over here in Germany it was at this time out) on a to me pretty unknown record label, "STRONG SURVIVE RECORDS" (...), this CD gives us five brandnew songs and three older songs, two from their "OLD SCHOOL PRIDE" smasher ("HOOLIGAN" and "WHERE MY HEART BELONGS") and also "TATTOOS AND STORIES", and all older traks are rerecorded and redone alternative versions of the well-known songs that hold really some fine suprises in store, like Country guitars, etc. pp., yeahr, so that it is all  in all really a good package. The record starts off with the title track "PATRIOTIC FORCE", and that's a hell of a fast and hard forceful and raging forward storming slasher!!! Fast paced guitar riffing, bulky and beefy pounding drumming and harsh bass playing, all crowned by the rough and tough vocals, and cultivated by some damn good and cool arranged changes in the architecture of the song (rhythm, pace, mood) and by some fucking great Keyboard sound sequences/leads that are spirited by some few Black Metal influences (ice cold and sinister melody, like you know it from at least the good Black Metal bands past and present out there), and that are really giving this song his stand-alone character. Really outstanding stuff!!! Btw the most hatefilled track on this one here, and a damn great kick off of this record, for sure!!! Next ones is the heavy stomper "LIKE AN EAGLE". Thundering drumming, a heavy crunchy bass (that also kicks the song off solo), pretty melodic vocals, a great refrain/chorus, damn marking guitar riffing that will spear through your ears into your head and brain and won't leave this place after made it a home, great guitar leads and an just awesome solo part, mercyless forward into war stomping rhythm (also with some clever done, short and quick and well-folating varities of it), and sheer force, a true anthem that you need to have and the lyrics are really great!!! After this "ANOTHER REVOLUTION" is breaking through the silence. Again, damn melodic vocals, and this song is probably a turn in the road of this (only much too short) record. After the angry slasher "PATRIOTIC FORCE" with a strong Skinhead R.A.C. battle song flair and spirit to it, the next one "LIKE AN EAGLE" with his already pretty clear change of this just pure Skinhead battle sound then finally "ANOTHER REVOLUTION" is 'nothing' 'else' but pure and dirty street-raised and Working Class bred Rock & Roll music, just listen to this pure and hard rockin' guitar riffing, the incredible tight and fat and forceful rhythm work, damn it, the whole rhythm section is snorting and puffing forward like a herd of angry and mad buffaloes, everything in their way milling over and flatting down, and the through and through anthemic and melodic vocals really give this statement of a song its crown, and the 'flute' (?) solo is really something totally suprising to this song, I bet that you wouldn't expected something like this coming for ya. Absolutely great, a larger-than-life anthem, and also pretty strong and good lyrics. "LIKE AN EAGLE" and "ANOTHER REVOLUTION" are really my total favorites (musically and lyrically) here on this one, stand-alone shit!!! Just pure platinum!!! The next one is "WHAT I'VE GOT", a 'proud-of-my-heritage-and-proud-of-who-I-am' hymn against the mainstream culture and society and with some 'words' about all the illegal aliens (...) that shall be out there... Anyway, at least in some points they aren't that much wrong at the end of the day, just take a walk through a large city near you with some open eyes, but okay, getting aware of it is one thing, what you realize as your consequences out of it is another thing. Btw, I think that's their most outspoken song on this one here, there you get it all at best, all what YOUNGBLOOD is really about (and what they've never hided anyway)... But okay, anyhow, "WHAT I'VE GOT" again is a pure and through and through raging and forceful Rock & Roll song, let us call it Streetrock & Roll or again Working Class Rock & Roll, it doesn't matter. Listen to the 'no-prisoners-taking' rhythm and the bulldozer stomping pace of the song, the guitar riffing is again just a saw that's making it's way through your head to leave its mark on you. Again also great diverse and varying powerful as well as damn melodic and catchy vocals, and some nice modifications of the vocas give this song also a pretty nice ('Southern') Metal spirt to it. Check it out!!! Next one is the last one of the new songs, called "CHEERS TO YOU". This song is coming with a strong Southern Rock influence as well as strong Hard Rock and Rock & Roll influences again, too, and if ya like 'newer' Confederacy R.A.C. bands like DEFINITE HATE and 13 KNOTS (yes, I know about them and I also know them, crucify me, haha;-)...) you will love this one, because YOUNGBLOOD are giving us a perfect demonstration of how this style should be played exclusively after all. A guitar lead somewhere between Country and Southern Rock, pounding drums, roasting guitar work, and a bass work that's really casting concrete, all made round by hard yet melodic vocals, great refrain parts, cool nice quick and floating changes of the rhythm and the pace, yeahr, again, that's just an awesome great track!!! After this one the three already mentioned older songs of them are coming, all played in acousic alternative versions (with cool and great worked out Country notes in it, and also some few 'mariner-music' impressions), and I love especially the new version of "TATTOOES AND STORIES", but also the new versions of "HOOLIGAN" and espcially "WHERE MY HEART BELONGS" (I love this track, musically and lyrically) are just great stuff, damn it, awesome!!! One of the very, very best R.A.C. records (even it's WP R.A.C.) to come out for and/or since years, trust me!!! Even R.A.C. isn't really suiting the music of YOUNGBLOOD since "OLD SCHOOL PRIDE" anymore, (radical or extreme) right wing Working Class Rock & Roll is a far better way to describe them today to the interested listener. Lyriclly they deal with views on the situation of their country and its society, sing about a patriotic uprise for the benefit of the nation, about being Working Class and proud of it, about their heritage and their mates, and about all that what really matters in the end when all the 'political statues' fall and the altars of all this political and ideological 'messiahs' burn at day zero, and all done not so 'evil' ;-) at all and also all done really fucking good. Thumbs up!!! The production sound is really good, earthy and dirty but also pretty clean and clear so that you get all what they are doing here, and the artwork looks just awesome, great work!!! That these guys damn know how to play their instruments and how to write songs should be clear after all!!! This here is the complete package, and if I could decide for you then damn buy this one here. Awesome!!! Cheers & Oi! (10 of 10 points)
Again, I'm sorry guys, but somehow I just can't find their MySpace site anymore on the web, or had it been deleted/removed...?!?
Now you get some clips to the songs of the "PATRIOTIC FORCE" record, it will be the videos to all the regular new tracks of this great piece of right wing music (of the radical/extreme kind) so that you can listen to every single track (maybe I find some videos to the bonus tracks as well on the web, we will see) and after listening to this songs you better make sure to order and buy this masterpiece, damn it, and here we go:
