Russia’s Siberian Meat Grinder released their new album, Metal Bear Stomp, a few days ago, their latest release is a brutal crossover album that blends elements of thrash metal and hardcore, that are mixed with machine gun raps and touches of black metal, unsurprisingly the result is a truly individual and aggressive soundtrack. Metal Bear Stomp is the band’s first full length release, but it’s one that follows in the wake of their two mini albums, Hail To The Tsar and Vs The World, that were originally released on their own label before being repressed by their current imprint, Destiny Records.
 
The majority of the tracks on Siberian Meat Grinder are intense fist pumping crossover blasts that have echoes of Slayer and Sacred Reich in their grooves, but there are moments that stand out amidst the almost relentless assault on the senses, an assault that is characterised by heavy breakdowns, heavyweight riffs and breakneck guitar solos. I can guarantee that the aggressive chant of the album’s title track will be lodged in your brain for days, and alongside the expected crossover ingredients there are elements of brutal rap that are seamlessly thrown into the mix, most notably on No Way Back. The combination of these elements makes for a perfectly named album, as I can’t come up with a better description for this release than Metal Bear Stomp.
 
Siberian Meat Grinder are a band that will appeal to fans of old school thrash, the more brutal side of crossover and for fans of the likes of Bodycount, Fire From The Gods and Suicidal Tendencies, this an intense metal influenced delivery, but, and this is a big but, the unintelligible growls of many modern metal influenced acts are replaced with a rhythmic aggressive style that brings something new to the party. The metal influences are very much to the fore on Metal Bear Stomp and they are delivered in an aggressive hardcore style, yet somehow every single track on Siberian Meat Grinder‘s debut full length has a dancefloor bounce to it, something that makes this an another unique import from Russia that, along with the likes of Svetlanas and Messer Chups, proves once more that all is not so quiet on the Eastern front.

The Isotopes are more of a loose collective rather than a band, since their inception over forty members have come and gone through the ranks, including members of some of Canada’s finest such as The Real McKenzies, Exploding Fuck Dolls, Vibrators, DOA, Nervous Talk and Dee Cracks. The Isotopes have now released their sophomore album, 1994 World Series Champions, today, the 14th April 2017, via Destiny Records in Europe and Stomp Records in North America, their latest full length follows on from their impressive debut, 2015’s Nuclear Strikezone

I’ll put my cards on the table before I get started, my knowledge of baseball is all gained from one episode The Simpsons, so to say the baseball references in this album are lost on me would be an understatement, but it does at least mean that I know the origin of the band’s name. Fortunately I do know an album of charged full tilt punk rock when I hear it, and that’s exactly what this is, from the opening short sharp shock of What We Do Ain’t Secret through to the superb closing track, Sandlot Party, this is ten tracks of Ramones influenced punk rock played exactly as it oughta be.

If you’re a fan of the likes of Teenage Bottlerocket, The Methadones and Masked Intruder, as well as the aforementioned Ramones, then this is an album that you will need in your life, unlike many sports albums or songs that are affiliated to one team this is more an album of punk rock that happens to have a baseball theme running through it. Whether you love baseball is incidental as this is ten tracks, that are delivered in around twenty minutes, of kick ass punk rock. Whilst reworking the Ramones trademark sound isn’t a new concept, if you’re going to do something you might as well do it well, and this is an album that is perfectly pitched, I knew I’d manage to get a baseball reference in there somewhere.
