Freedom Fist-S/T album. FFO: Powerviolence/brutal hardcore punk. Love that I found this band, this is mental, frantic, intense powerviolence and hardcore punk with the abrasiveness of being Scottish and angry as fuck(although the two often go together).
This is excellent from start to end, and the production is what I need to hear-gritty, grimy but everything is balanced and dynamic as hell. Add to that excellent lyrics, solid piss-taking and unhinged anarchic brutality. Yes, most tracks are fast as fuck but exceptionally well-written and catchy as hell. Less grindcore, and more old-school crust mixed with fast hardcore like Heresy etc. But obviously, some Infest and Siege love equally. Totally my shit by a mile. I need albums that make me wanna run through brick walls.
My fave tracks were the crushing Scotland the Slave, We Still Hate Thatcher, Not Mah Queen and Sean Connery's Drunk Brother, but the whole album is a beast and one of my fave hardcore albums of this year.
Plus I love their own versions of two of my fave Exploited and Crass songs that they made their own in INDYREF2 and Dae They Owe Us Our Freedom. And also I adore Scotland (we're fuckin awesome), and every track.
All in all, an epically brutal album, that is fun and political as hell. Killer no filler. Support this band, buy their music, merch, everything.
Love these bastards!!!
