ANTI MANIAX: As Long as People Think: CD

Have you noticed if a band is from another country, they still sound American? That is one drawback to America’s influence on the international punk community. All our bands go over there to tour, but how much of the other countries’ bands come here? I hear in some countries, the local bands can’t even get gigs unless an American band picks them to open up. That is sad. Here is a band from Austria that sounds like an American band. They play to the formula of what’s popular with the Warped Tour kid set. They play melodicore laced with some ska leanings. The vocalist at times sounds like Ian from the Minor Threat period. The songs range from Against All Authority to NOFX in sound. Nothing thrilling, but competent in their delivery.
