SYNDROME 81 - Demo Ep
Syndrome 81 is a new French oi/punk band from members of Thrashington D.C., The Night Stalkers, and Police Truck. The demo features five of the catchiest oi jams this side of Blitz. Their sound is influenced more by UK oi – and UK82 – than French oi, although some of the riffs sound like a more melodic take on No Class. What comes through most, though, is Blitz’s new wave singles, especially New Age. The guitar line from Une Vie Pour Rien sounds like it could’ve come right off that 7”. Overall the band has a more hardcore punk sound than most oi coming out, but keeps a great balance between melody and aggression.
