EMPIRE OF RUST - "SHITTY DEMO RECORDINGS 2011 - 2012" (Baltimore Streetrock'n'Oi! from 2011 to 2012 + Download Link)

("D.I.Y."; MP3-Download):
This is an American Streetrock'n'Oi! band from Baltimore that I discovered accidentially the last days or so and this is their demo release on 2012 so far, packed up full with their so far complete song discography done in the two years of 2011 and 2012, if I understood it right, and this is released as a official MP3-Download by the band itself and this so it seems so far just exclusively as a official free MP3-Download up on their Bandcamp site. (As usual the Download Link will close this review.) Stumbled upon them and found them really enjoying and so I did the Download, and if you should do so as well don't be confused that the Download just shows three songs and you get eight songs all in all. This band delivers us over the distance of their eight songs in about nineteen minutes strong rockin' and incredible dirty and punky rollin' surely at least very slightly Oi! fueled Streetrock music the U.S. American way of style and sound. Dirty and noisy, yet powerwful and somehow catchy hymnal guitar playing, a nicely smashing rhythm section and forceful snotty and also in a sympathic way wasted on some drinks lead vocals. Nothing anyhow special or groundbreaking here but some good stuff for sure that makes a lot fun to listen to, especially if you are familliar with and like bands like the great SORE LOSERS and their offsprings in the also great RAZORWIRE, even EMPIRE OF RUST at least currently can't really match up with the two mentioned bands, but are anyhow a really good and strong band. So, after this is a demo recording you should do good and expect some very minimalistic and dirty, noisy and rumbling, rough and raw, pretty live recorded kept dirty production sound that could and should really be a lot better because so it really blocks a lot of the potential that this music surely calls its very own, but okay, after this is a demo no one should also bitch around because of it too much. The included cover artwork is a nice one and the lyrics offer some nice approaches. So, anyway, a good starting point by and for a band we will hopefully hear and get more from in the future, after they've already shown here a lot potential. (7 of 10 points)
