BATTALION ZOŚKA: Self-titled: LP

Tough punk from Philadelphia with great riffs and thoughtful lyrics on the current state of the world. With this style it can be easy to fall flat and come off sounding mediocre, but Battalion Zośka avoid that pitfall with ease. The album has guest spots from Dez Cadena and Newt from Angelic Upstarts. This one is a winner! –Ty Stranglehold (Violated, violatedrecords.com)
