Slow Death, The
The Slow Death are releasing their 4th LP, "Casual Majesty" on Rad Girlfriend Records. Still a never-ending who's who of midwestern punk rock royalty, The Slow Death includes members of Dillinger Four, The Ergs, The Raging Nathans, The Soviettes, and the list goes on and on. At the helm of this punk rock pirate ship is the Captain, Jesse Thorson. Ten songs drawing on influences of working class Oi anthems, and No Coast pop punk fury. Sometimes rollicking and fun, often dark and somber, The Slow Death have carved out their own niche of melodic punk over a decade ago and have not eased up for a moment. Infectious punk anthems like this only come along every so often. Imagine Cock Sparrer meets The Lemonheads. Yeah, it is that good.
