It’s been awhile since I reviewed a powerviolence release. So here is a fresh portion of good noise for everyone. This vinyl is a fairly simple and highly effective eight minutes worth of material that hits the spot for anyone into fast and heavy music. From first look this music may seem not serious, but it’s only because of the joke cover; believe me tunes inside are real and serious.
Belgian Travølta is here again with their own vision of powerviolence. The music of Travølta has a strong metal hardcore touch, with characteristic sound. The whole production is good and clean, maybe even too clean. Clanking bass sounds pretty good, guitar tune is nice too, but it’s too clear on my taste. Chaos in all songs taking place instrumentally, the vocals come through more or less clear, but it brings its own ferocity.
Boom band is new for me. Honestly I was positively surprised when I finished to listen to their side. The sound is punky, a bit raw – right how I like it. These guys are playing furious music at breakneck speed, and they know how to play it right. The song builds and builds until it seems like it’s reached boiling point, I almost feel like tracks will tears apart at any moment. The vocalist for this band is amazing, it sounds sound so crazy and fresh I really like it. This band is my personal favorite at this release.
Rating: Travølta 7.5/10 Boom 8.5/10
