Energetic and angry melodic hardcore from the Netherlands which spits anti-authority, politically charged venom at a plethora of targets, including the rise of fascism in the band’s native country. Musically, Smash The Statues is the more boisterous and in-your-face version of fellow countrymen Antillectual, but both outfits tread the same path in terms of message. FORVM contains a good mix of songs but it’s “Shores of Europe” and “The Eternal Nation” which really get my blood pumping, as they are blasts of highly adrenalized punk rock. Very good indeed. –Rich Cocksedge (White Russian, [email protected],
