OLD FIRM CASUALS: Holger Danske: LP

I’m pals with this lot, so if you think you’re getting an unbiased opinion, you’re tripping. Mercifully, I don’t gotta lie. The boys have pulled it off! Keeping the street rock’n’roll backbone they started with, they have opened up the playing field taking nods and winks from NWOBH, AC/DC, Motörhead, and even some of the dodgy later Rejects LPs. The addition of second guitar brings a thickness to the sound and the recording sounds like they are a fucking stadium band. I can see the band really coming together with all members bringing pasts and presents to the table. Don’t get me wrong—this is still punk as fuck—but they have transcended the bootboy world into something totally new and interesting. KILLLLLLLLLLLLER. –Tim Brooks (Pirates Press, piratespressrecords.com)
