STINK BOMB VS. LIFE ON MARS – PISSING CONTEST (SPLIT) [2016]
Reviews

With a raw production ,the St. Louis based LIFE ON MARS show a very DIY attitude with short songs, dirty guitars and simple melodies. That’s what i’m talking about when I say PUNK ROCK! They remind me a little bit of THE QUEERS (USA) in the “A Day Late And A Dollar Short” era. Dirty and short songs with clean vocals and a lot to say. STINKBOMB, they sound like a mix of SCREECHING WEASEL (USA) and BLACK FLAG (USA)....

MAXWELL’S DEAD – BURNING AWAY EP review
Reviews

“Burning Away EP” is the brand new work by MAXWELL’S DEAD, a quartet from Dundee, UK that has been doing punk rock music over the last ten years. The EP contains 5 songs (one of them is an NOFX cover), on the wave of skatepunk and melodic hardcore bands. A kind of fusion of Rancid and NOFX, that might be their biggest influences. And it results in great songs with serious baselines, melodic passages and the strong rhythm of the...
