Real Punk Without The Bullshit!

Reviews of this album:

MaximumRockNRoll #153:
Damn, this record is great! Totally frantic hardcore punk that races about like a hyperactive child hooked on speed. Snotty vocals, raw guitars, and the rest coming together creating catchy and aggressive punk mixed with some oi to send the listener into moving about like a maniac. This stuff rocks. As soon as one song ends the other one opens up full throttle. Chuck those lame power pop records that the media tells you are punk and go for the real deal. Punk played like it should be.

Endangered Species March ’96:
It starts wuth a blast and continues with a non-stop tempo throughout. That’s punk rawk, pure, and in its only form. Violent Society do everything you want them to do; Viscious-esque vocals, sing along choruses, and finger snapping three chord songs. This is a punk record, and while you can’t go too far punk without corrupting this beauteous child, Violent Society definitely make their mark in the unique realm of punk. Influenced in safe amounts by the Varukers, Blitz, UK Subs, etc. Don’t ignore another great release in a genre that has to work harder to stay alive. Do yourself a favor and get this full length CD, because we all run the risk of some corporate shithole buying a band like this out, and putting the hardworking labels out of business.

Slug & Lettuce #43:
This is excellent!! Total pogo punk with snotty vocals and an uppity punk beat. There’s some Oi’s in their too. Sounds a lot like the Casualties. The punky punk kids are going to eat this up! So far it’s only available on CD. Check these guys out – this is good straight forward old styled pogo punk!

Useless #1:
This has to be my favorite album of the year. 20 tracks that bring to mind some of the early eighties second wave British punk bands. As if this isn’t good enough, they cell the CD’s for $5 at their shows, an added incentive to check them out live. I’m still trying to figure out how Vinnie doesn’t like this. Sucker.

Flipside #100:
After a couple of cassettes and 7” slabs of vinyl, these guys have finally got around to record a buttload of songs for a CD release. Here’s twenty tracks of really snotty sounding fast punk and hardcore. For those out there that get groovin’ to the likes of the Quincy Punx will also dig these guys, because these guys are on the same snotty wavelength. This is stripped down and face rippin’ hardcore, with absolutely no metal whatsoever .. it’s like what it was back in ’84. For those who want their punk rock to be snide and mean will get their fix here.

Isotope #4:
This is one of the first CDs to make me move in months. I had to pry it out of my CD player to get the other reviews done. We play it at work and my friend Joe and I mosh. Then we kick this girl Ivy in the nose. Not Enjoyin It is packed with fast riff orientated songs like All for the Fame. The album also makes sure it fits in a quota of OI cries. Go see them live and buy this CD!

Rockpile #108:
This 20-track CD by Violent Society is filled with high-octane, super-charged punk anthems that could probably bring out the rebellious spirit in almost anyone. With each track averaging only 2 ½ minutes in length, listening to Not Enjoyin It has the same effect of being stampeded by a herd of buffalo. They charge, stampede, and then leave before your senses realize what just hit you. Just put on your safari hat before listening.

Under the Volcano #31:
Fast, aggressive, and melodic Hardcore from Philadelphia, despite vocals that sound like the guy is jumping out of an airplane – and I mean that as a compliment. The second cut “It’s Only Your Life” makes me wanna sing along, but the pace doesn’t slow down enough to let me catch my breath. 20 songs that breeze by faster than you can say “The East Coast is comin’ out with some really good stuff lately, huh?”

Gnooch #3:
Following a string of singles, tapes, and songs on comps everyones favorite east coast assholes have put out a full length CD. If you’re looking for a punk band that still knows where punk came from (no I don’t mean so-Cal popcrap) then you’ve found it here, there really isn’t anything else to say about this, except that it’s really fucking good.

FOE #29:
Pat (vocals) knows his shit, he is the biggest Eater fan I know. His band, Violent Society, combines the elements of 80s Brit punk along with 80s hardcore for something that has as much energy as both of those influences, and sounds fresh and familiar at the same time. The guitars are powerful and crisp, the vocals come shining through and whether they are putting forth an oi type song, or a full throttle hardcore blast, you will enjoy this disc!

Jersey Jams #88:
Violent Society can do no wrong with me, I love this style of punk rock. (Pissed off old fashioned society fueled fuck you music) These songs only reinforce my positive opinion; they’re loud, vocal, and fun to slam around your room to (though I did hurt my ankle when I tripped over a chair) I can hardly decide which is my favorite – there’s “In Crowd” which I had heard before and have made my anthem, “Culture Magnet”, again, great, harsh punk rock. Fuck, I love em all. I highly recommend this – you’ll dance all night.

Last Gasp #17:
This is absolutely one of the best albums I own. It’s fast, snotty, punk! Violent Society has some of my favorite songs on here (Culture Magnet, In Crowd, Sarge’s Last Stand) plus lots more that I never heard before. I urge everyone who likes punk to get this album.

Happy Goat #3:
I told you to buy this last issue but it seems for some reason you haven’t picked it up yet – are you stupid? Well obviously not if you are reading HAPPY GOAT but anyway buy this CD it is the greatest in your face punk/hardcore you wil ever hear, catchy choruses, lyrics I can relate to. This is awesome – too many songs for me to mention. Buy it or be a dick.

Scenester #2:
I’ll make this short and sweet. Anyone who likes classic (’77 England) punk will love this album. Practically anyone else will too. Violent Society recorded all of their classics like “You’re Gonna Fall” and “Polyester Snatch” along with some newer ones like “I Wanna Know. This CD has been selling briskly and is bound to be regarded as a classic of modern punk. A must purchase for everyone.

Journals of the Insane #2:
I’d really like to apologize to Paul Dengel from Motherbox Records for the review I did on this last issue. He was nice enough to give it to me and all I did was give it a really quick review so I could get the zine out. Sorry about that. Violent Society is nothing less then one of the best bands that have emerged in the northeast in a while. The album has great raw sound that’s a mix between pop punk and hardcore. “It’s Only Your Life” “Sight 4 Sore Eyes”, “Virgin House”, and “Disorder” are great songs Fuck that, they’re all good songs. Not Enjoyin’ It? Hell, I enjoyed it.

Heartattack #8 (two reviews from same zine):
Another band who apparently don’t think their lyrics are of much importance, or they would have spent time to print them instead of the humungous thanks list. Musically it reminds me of generic ‘80s east Coast punk. Skins and punks unite type of theme going maybe? Who knows, I can’t understand the singers whiny vocals. I expected more. (NW)
These guys have the recipe for punk down! It goes as follows … Throw in a blender the following bands: The Pist, Discharge and Grimple, blend those fuckers up good. Now add a heaping earful of catch ’77 and stir until the mixture is nice and snotty. Serve with plenty of beer. Begin to pogo. Yum! (Mark)
