Suicide Syndicate sounds like a lot of bands. The first track is almost a complete AC/DC ripoff. I hear Rancid and Motörhead and The Misfits. More than anything, it seems that Suicide Syndicate wants you to know that they are tough. Even if their songs sound tired and repetitive, Suicide Syndicate play to say, “Fuck that weak shit,” which just happens to be the title of track two, side two. When will someone say, “Fuck that tough-guy shit”? Clichés are clichés for a reason, I suppose.
