The latest reviews:


v/a - Oi! Ain´t Dead Vol. 7

Rebellion Records - LP -


1157_oad7.jpgNext part of copilation Oi! Ain´t Dead is out and according to the title it will contain just Dutch bands. So there are five bands with three songs each (except the last one) - Savage Beat, Live by the Sword, The Reapers, Complaint and Razorblade. Also each band has been already reviewed there except The Reapers which are simply Discharger without Tim. Album is opened by Savage Beat with their steel guitars without booster and except song Revenge two other songs are previously unreleased – Stop Trying and Don´t Hide Your Hate which is cover from old Dutch band Filth and Savage Beat sounds like them (also in other songs). Dutch/US project LBTS shouldn´t be described – they have there their hit song Rats and Snakes, new song Fire and also cover version – now from Templars – Pawns in their Game from Phase II. I have to pick up Erik´s great vocal again. The Reapers didn´t release anything yet (but full album is in the pipeline) and they have there songs Thought Control, I´ve Had Enough and Self Destruction and all are done just for this record. So you can expect steel guitar like from Chickswick time and great singalong refrains. And thumbs up for the solo guitar because it is really great. Complaint is the fastest band on the record and they have there released track Take a Stand and two new songs called Leave me Alone (nice and melodic piece) and That´s No Punk. Album ends with previously unreleased song from Razorblade - New Dawn Rising and part of it was used in LBTS – Dead Dawn Rising – I told to myself that I surely hear the tunes somewhere. Nice compilation with bands which play different styles.

Operace Artaban - Na Hraně

Rabiát Records - CD -


1156_Operace-artaban-na-hrane.jpgAfter three years from releasing Vlastizrada album came Operace artaban with brand new stuff called Na hraně (On the Edge) which is out on their label Rabiát Records with 12 new songs. Line up is constatnt since their album Prozření – three pieces plus female vocals in few songs. Musically it is similar to their previous stuff – it is more crossover genre with rhythm changes in songs (like in Na hraně or the first one Spojme síly), guitar is playful with good solos (like in Spojme síly, Na hraně or Člověk proti světu). You will also hear ska tunes (Mandril). Kabanos change his bass guitar after all those years (paddle is gone for good :) and many songs start with bass tunes. The band ironicly shows their attitude in lyrics to current situations – so called artists and elites which dictate us how to behave, what wear and how to think (Na hraně – On the Edge), criminality of asylum seekers (Mandril where I always laugh when I hear the rhyme about shrew-mouse in the garden :) and Lochneska z plovárny – Loch Ness monster from swimming pool), brainwashing the kids with the “true” fairy tales where two princes live together with absurd refrain how dragons going to beat prince (Pohádka – Fairytale), running away from crowded cities and going back to agriculture rules (Cesta z města – A Way out from the city, with main female vocals) or general stand against modern world and going back to the nature (last piece Člověk proti světu – Man against world, which is written by Milosek and which concept fits more into his solo project Svornost I think), then slower piece which is (according to me) dedicated to god/destiny (Dar života – Gift of Life) or stalking (Udusím tě láskou – Suffocation with love with ocarina at the beginning). You will find also classic topics like Tattoo or skinhead cult (Skinheads Forever) or funny cover Antifanfántulipán which makes surely a lot of people angry. Cover is done by Tlustej Tony again so comix style with many photos in the middle and all lyrics in Czech and English (done by Bobek). Best songs for me are Na hraně and the last one Člověk proti světu. Album is out on CD but I hope the LP version will be soon. Who likes stuff from OA from Prozření till now will like also this album.
