Punk and all it's subgenres goes here! out of the, as I see it, the root of punk we've got the british punk with Sex Pistols as creators, the more rock inspired The Clash and the American punk as played by the Ramones. I like Sex Pistols the most because of their thoughness and attitude + Johnny Rotten was a great frontman. Green Day is the punk rock band that's got most of my attention. The new stuff is pure bullshit while the old is totally underrated.

Re: Punk i think punk is my least favourite thing in all that exists, from old school punk to new wave pop punk it's all the same bullshit to me :/ in every genre there's a couple of bands or artists that i like, but for some reason i have NEVER found a punk band that i like :( i would like to like it, i've tried so hard i just don't get it, such little effort is ever put into the music it's as if they don't want to create music for others to enjoy :/ i know this is just my opinion but he ho :(

Re: Punk something that many people forget about punk is the lyrics, they often have very strong anti*insert subject of your choice* messages and some people doesn't like that. personally I love it. you've tried listening to Pennywise and Bad Religion? Bad Religion's one of my favourite bands when it comes to lyrics

Re: Punk yeah, trust me :L i've given pretty much every punk band i can lay my hands on a try. and i've just been disappointed every time. yeah the lyrics are the only thing going for punk, but apart from being just slightly "fuck you" to everyone, they are well written :L to me it's poetry . . . not music

Re: Punk

what are the opinions of pop-punk . . . forever the sickest kids' date=' all time low, twenty twenty, blink 182 and shit like that . . . i think it's absolutely HORRIBLE and every singer sounds exactly the same, my girlfriend listens to that kind of music all the time and it bugs the shit out of me :L[/quote'] I can't stand that stuff at all. I especially hate how a lot of it is popular today. And you're right, every single singer does sound the same. It's horrible.

Re: Punk

i call it "the voice" it's that american accent mixed with the high singing' date=' it sounds so tacky and unbelievably annoying, glad people agree with me, all the scene kids in my city think i'm retarded because i listen to the heavy music but not the pop punk, i say fuck 'em :L[/quote'] Yes, so very annoying. One of the reasons I like old-school punk is because most of the singers had unique voices. And the scene kids here think the same thing about me! It's kinda funny, actually.

Re: Punk Back in the 1980's I grew up with two older teenage brothers who were punks, so I got to listen to a lot of the old school punk (the good stuff) bands like, Anti-Nowhere League, The Clash, Cockney Rejects, Sex Pistols, Sham 69, U.K. Subs. To be a punk band you need to have attitude, and modern pop punk bands don't have it. It's music that reflects a certain time in the past. The bands mentioned above reflect what life was like in Britain in the 70's and 80's, there was a lot of angry young unemployed teenagers out their who could relate to what Johnny Rotten and co were saying. In today's world most young white teenagers think they can relate to the lyrics of the Hip-Hop artists :roll: . A current punk band that I like at the moment is Lars Frederiksen And The Bastards.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
