WAR GOES ON, THE: Self-titled: LP

It’s been four years since this Danish band has released anything. Musically, this is a blend of Badtown Boys, Bad Religion, and Youth Brigade with gruff vocals that make me think of Black Dots. At times, the whole package has a streetpunk/oi quality to it but without the plodding cadence that sometimes blights that genre. The album definitely has a sense of urgency and energy. I listened to a stream of this once before putting my hand in my pocket to make a purchase. It’s certainly worth every penny. –Rich Cocksedge (Adult Crash, [email protected], adult-crash.com)
