Dronez: Corporate Funded Terror 7"

Ryvvolte Records

$5.50

Debut vinyl from this Philadelphia band and it'll peel the paint right off your walls! Dronez clearly come from the school of "everything heavier than everything else," metallic, Swedish-style d-beat. If your record collection includes both older artists like Anti-Cimex and Doom as well as newer bands like Skemäta and Perdition then this is going to be for you... it's a recipe that's at least a couple of decades old now--two parts Motorhead, 3 parts Discharge--but when it's done right it never fails to hit that sweet spot. It's refreshing that Dronez are also remarkably free of d-beat cliches... even their band name seems to indicate that they're self-consciously updating the Discharge template for modern times. Basically, though, if you like it fast, loud, and crusty this is a band that should be on your radar. Crushing! Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies with screen printed jackets, by the way.
