ZLODZIEJE ROWEROW: Final (Live): CD/DVD

Hailing from Warsaw, Poland, Zlodzieje Rowerow (“Bicycle Thieves” in Polish) were a pillar of the Polish hardcore punk scene since the early ‘90s. On December 18th, 2010 the band played their last show at Club CDQ in Warsaw to a sold-out crowd. All the intensity of that last show is captured on this live CD/DVD. The sound quality on the CD is amazing, one of the best live recordings I’ve ever heard. Zlodzieje Rowerow play melodic hardcore, with catchy riffs and shouted vocals. There’s a bit of late ‘80s post-hardcore vibe in this as well that I was into. Sadly, I was unable to get the DVD to play in my DVD player, but based on the CD alone, I’d say this is solidly worth checking out.
