You probably already know Snuff, so we’ll skip the intros. This is first new record from them since 2005’s greatest hits/rarities thing Six of One, Half Dozen of Another. I wasn’t expecting this to ever happen, but I’m rejoicing! Snuff is back! Scream it from the rooftops! The formula is the same as it has been since the mid ‘90s: melodic, fun punk with keyboards and horns and riffs as catchy as a super flu. As always, there are some hardcore thrash outs, some pub-style sluralongs and everything you would ever come to love and expect from Duncan Redmonds and company. Now if only they would tour in this direction… In the meantime, you should have this in your collection.
