SUICIDE SYNDICATE: Watch It Fall: 7”

Sep 19, 2013

Sweden’s Suicide Syndicate is a very tough, straightforward band that infuses their songs with occasional organ lines. Seemingly inspired by Southern U.S. punk like ANTiSEEN or Hellstomper, there aren’t a ton of European bands playing in this style. This three-song record’s high point is the anti-religious title track. Suicide Syndicate is a provocative name. Once you kill yourself, it’s hard to be part of a syndicate. It’s endearing that even in the least religious part of the world, there’s still a need to rally against it. Suicide Syndicate, for all of its toughness, is therefore oddly cute. They’ll make you grin like a maniac.
