MURDER DISCO X: Ground Zero: Stuttgart: LP

Another band that has been around for more than ten years, and I hear them for the first time now. This band from Germany might have flown under my sights but is in focus now. Punk that plays a straight forward power brand of punk. Kind of gave me the feeling of listening to the first MDC record or hearing Negative Approach. But also has the sound ‘88 hardcore that came out of the East Coast. The power that comes thru the speakers is undeniable. Two covers of Terveet Kadet and Self Destruct might go unnoticed if you were not familiar because they made it their own. Each song has a variance to make it an easy listen from start to finish. I personally felt there were no fillers to be heard and I continued to flip the record over and over many times before I went to listen to something else. If they ever tour the West Coast, I am so there!
