RAMROD: Self-titled: CD

Sep 04, 2008

This type of punk doesn’t typically do it for me, but I’ve loved this band for a while. Bowie, Maryland’s Ramrod do a Fat Wreck skate rock type thing, which comes out sounding a bit like No Use For A Name, Lagwagon, NOFX, etc. That isn’t quite the description I’d like to use (they’re better than that), but it’s the closest I can get. Dual vocals, frequent tempo changes, and above average drum and string skills can be found all throughout the well written songs on this record. This follows up the Junk Rock EP that was released early last year. Check this out as soon as possible.
