ALLEGED BRICKS: Place Your Blame: CD

Oi-influenced punk with low, deep gargling vocals and the occasional shout out anthem. This brings to mind The Wretched Ones or The Suspects, mixed with slow NYHC breakdowns. This feels a bit bogged down at times, so the peppier songs come across better, such as in “Backpack” and “The Pain.” They do a Bad Brains cover of “Don’t Bother Me” with what sounds like someone else singing. Overall this is solid, but somewhat unremarkable.
