Album Review – Blitzkrieg; Everything is Lies

The latest album from Southports finest, Blitzkrieg, is a 12 track Punk Rock classic. ‘Everything Is Lies’ is a fantastic mix of noise, musicianship and anthemic lyrics.

Opening with ‘What is Truth’ it sets the scene for the rest of the album. ’21st Century Punks’ is thrashy, and ‘Bleed and Bleed’ has an amazing riff which reminded me of The Boys – don’t know why, it just did.

‘This is Not America’ is anthemic but I can’t help thinking of Bored in the USA when I hear it – not musically but lyrically. ‘I don’t Want’ begins with a great bassline while ‘TNT (In Yer Face Bitch)’ had me singing along immediately…you would have thought somehow I would have learned by now.

I would describe ‘Wolf’ as Adicts with attitude…listen to it and you’ll know what I mean..its the harmonies. ‘Murder’ is proper Punk, ‘We Fight’ starts with a great drum and bass, (not the dance stuff), intro and is 1.44 minutes of wonderful noise, ‘We Die Alone’ and ‘Destruction 08’ finish the album and are of the same quality as the rest of the album….top class.

However my stand out track is ‘Scream It’…probably the best track I’ve heard this year…I can’t stop singing it, work, car and in Tesco’s. I absolutely love this track.

If you want to support the band buy the CD from dumbdown records…

If you know the band get them to appear at Rebellion 2010…then I can see them live 🙂
