COMRADES, THE: Faceless Landscape: CD

Though they don’t really sound like ‘em, the veritable hodgepodge of weird rhythmic timings and theatrical vocal delivery these guys put into their music brings to mind Secret Hate, who did much the same with hardcore back in the ‘80s. Though a lot of what they do may be is skewed and lyrically astute enough to leave most of the parrot-punk punters back at the starting line, they are no strangers to pop sensibilities, making sure to add the occasional sing-along part to keep the kids attentive.
