Jackie D are a band from Portugal that plays a very sleazy form of southern hardcore punk and this is a review of their 2014 album "Symphonies From The City" which was released by Infected Records.
A very retro sounding bass guitar starts off the album giving the music a southern rock along with some melodic vocals a few seconds later that lead up to a heavier musical direction and the solos and leads the band uses are in more of a 70's classic rock musical direction which they also mix in with the raw energy of punk rock.
After awhile the music starts going for more of a heavier musical direction along with the vocals mixing melody and aggression together and they also mix in the heaviness of hardcore with their southern style of punk rock along with some elements of metal and stoner rock and the bass guitars also utilized a small amount of leads at times.
Jackie D plays a style of hardcore punk that brings in elements of southern and stoner rock along with some elements of metal to create a sound that is very hard and sleazy, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Jackie D are a very great sounding sleazy, southern hardcore punk band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Middle Finger" "Hello Death" and "This City". 8 out of 10.
