Violent Reaction - Marching On
Today I bring you "Straight edge hardcore for the antisocial" from Violent Reaction. Formed in 2010 as a solo project by Liverpudlian Tom Pimlott and influenced by the Boston scene of the 80's as well as bands of the ilk of Negative Approach, Last Rights, Discharge, Blitz, Negative FX, The Fix, Poison Idea, Boston Strangler etc.... VxR are now based in Leeds and utilise the talents of Nicky Sarnella (drums), Chubby Charles (guitar), Calcolm X (bass) and Tom (Razor) Hardwick (guitar).
A demo cassette in 2011 was followed by a 6 track s/t ep before 2013 saw the release of debut album, City Streets. Next up was the Dead End ep before Revelation Records unleashed their new full length, Marching On. You can hear more from them on Bandcamp ( https://violentreaction.bandcamp.com/ ) or you can listen to the new album's blistering title track below. Certain to be one of the best hardcore album's of the year don't miss out.....
