A tribute to bandeira De Combate, one of Brazil’s best and longest going skinhead bands. The album features 14 classic Bandeira De Combate tracks covered by Smart Violence & Hammerstroke (Germany), Tar Had (Hungary), Malnatt (Italy), Lemovice (France) and The Bully Boys (USA), in the band’s mother tongues.
Doc Evil was the Oi! band of Doug before he started playing in Blood Red Eagle. The band has now been resurrected and this is its first official release. Like BRE, the band is defined by Doug’s raw sounding vocals and the rock influences in the sound, like many other Aussie bands like The Corps for example..Doc Evil has a bit of a raw edge, though one of the songs, “Another town”, sounds like celtic punk without the classic instruments. Very good “debut” for a band and frontman that is keeping it real!
The German OI! / RAC band declaring its love for Oi! music and the scene, the real scene, not the new overtly PC version. The lyrics are not political at all, but show what real skinhead is all about, not hippies with shaved heads, when being a skinhead was dangerous still without all the marketing and business surrounding it. A very nostalgic sounding album. Musically from melodic singalong Oi! with songs like the title track or “Wo sind die tage” to harder skinhead rock sounding. A band playing in the same league as Endstufe. Big booklet with lyrics and photos.
