Siberian Hardcore (LP)

Höhnie Records - 15 €

BACK IN STOCK!!! While Appendix showed varied songwriting and influences from ’77 punk to proto-hardcore, Bastards stuck mostly to fast Discharge-inspired ‘core with few slow or melodic parts. Discharge has inspired tons of generic-ass punk bands, but Bastards have chops that make their songs interesting and memorable despite the faster pace. This isn’t the thrash of today that sounds like a badger fighting a wolverine in a metal garbage can, this is fast hardcore punk with discernible vocals, catchy-but-mean guitar work and no blast-beats. HC classic (official reissue on Höhnie records)
