Violent Reaction are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a very old school form of hardcore punk and this is a review of t heir 2015 album "Marching On" which will be released on March 31st by Revelation Records.
A very old school and heavy hardcore punk sound starts off the album and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well a some blast beats being added into certain sections of t he recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When vocals are added into the music they are very angry sounding hardcore punk style shouts which also use back up gang shouts at times and the bands musical style is very heavily rooted in the early 80's east coast hardcore punk style and the songs also bring in a great amount of oi and streetpunk influences and there is never a soft or week moment to be heard anywhere on the recording.
Violent Reaction plays a style that mixes 80's hardcore with street punk, straight edge and oi to create some very fast and raw music, the production sounds very old school yet professional all at the same time while the lyrics cover political and real life themes.
In my opinion Violent Reaction are a very great sounding hardcore punk band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Leave me Out" "Death Threat" "War" and "Marching On". 8 out of 10.
