DOBERMANN CULT: Lions Share of the Dog Years: LP/CD

May 21, 2014

This Swedish quintet uses an NYHC style to hit hard and fast as it explodes across thirteen songs that clearly owe a debt to the likes of Sick Of It All and Agnostic Front. I’m not that enamoured with the tough guy image some groups portray. The name Dobermann Cult, along with a photo of the band with such a dog on the insert, left me a bit cold. However, the music is well executed and songs like “No Tolerance for Intolerance” display a side of the band I can get behind, alleviating my initial reservations.
