Violent Reaction - Marching On

OK this is not new. It was in March, but I finally found time to write a piece about this. So here goes..
BLOODY HELL! This is definitely one of the best hardcore albums of 2015.
For those who don't know, VR is a hardcore band from Leeds, UK and they sound as old school as it gets.
"Marching on" is balanced between slow/midtempo Oi! parts as well as fast ones by some of my favorite hardcore bands such as Poison Idea, Outcold and the likes. This is Negative Approach meets Last Rights with a more decent sound production-wise. Yes, it's as good as it sounds. I don't think there is any reason getting into the songs one by one because the album is so fast and "easy" to listen, that you really have no time for this.
We need more like this!
