Rebuke / Money Left To Burn

Rebuke / Money Left To Burn


Disconnect Disconnect Records

Rating: 3.5/5




Rebuke and Money Left To Burn – not exactly household names in the punk rock community, but solid modern interpretations of melodic 90’s skate punk nevertheless. Both minor players in a much bigger scene, you’d be unlikely to run across them during the same trip through town. So leave that job to the talent scouts at Disconnect Disconnect Records who had the insight to offer up a crash course on both bands via a sick new split. Clocking in at ten songs in just over twenty minutes, Rebuke and Money Left To Burn make for a natural and fiery pairing. Like jalapenos doused in hot sauce, each flame feeds the fire.

Sweden’s Rebuke kicks things off with their big and brash brand of rapidfire melody. Landing somewhere between the jagged vocals meet rattle-bang drumbeat of Burning Fiction and Part Time Killer, “Hunter Street” opens on a deceptively perky note before jarring forward with rambunctious riffs that spit out the message “we won’t miss you while you’re gone.” Compared with their peers, Rebuke is considerably more abrupt in their vocals and guitar work, but justifies the rough edges with some razor sharp guitar solos that reel in the tension to tighten their form. Notably, “That’s A Sick Park” finds the guitar lead taking aim with familiar guitar work that sounds like a metal cover of the iconic Jurassic Park theme song. Not exactly something you’d seek out – but the novelty of the riffs boast some seriously epic staying power. Rebuke’s contributions are consistent with their past, and their five tracks race by with confidence and attitude.

Flip over to the second side though and the disc really blasts off. German quintet Money Left To Burn boasts a technical edge in the vein on MUTE, Propagandhi, A Wilhelm Scream, Strung Out and Darko – and they know how to use it. Propelled by searing lead vocals that pace the ensuing buzz of high flying riffs, Money Left To Burn barrel headlong into bouts of highly entertaining audio demolition. “Finish Line” lathers on the intensity in a pseudo-hardcore approach drawing plenty of parallels to Darko’s rabid enthusiasm. Other tracks like “Ladders” feed into vocal harmonies and layers of sizzling chords traded between the band’s two guitarists. The rest of the batch race onwards like Full Circle-era Pennywise in “Dreaming ‘Bout Utopia” and “Common Shame.” As the disc rolls to a close, Money Left to Burn leaves an impressionable mark.

The combination of Rebuke’s rapidfire melodic skate-punk and Money Left To Burn’s technical edge make for a dynamic and sonically “spicy” split that entertains from start to finish. Rebuke’s playful side balances out Money left To Burn’s more instrumentally ambitious attitude without outshining one another. Disconnect Disconnect Records has a done a fine job in pairing two lesser known and complimentary European punk acts together. If any of the various influences caught your eye, then Rebuke and Money Left To Burn’s first split is worth your time.

Rebuke Enter Studio To Record New EP

RebukeGothenburg, Sweden skate punk act Rebuke is teasing fans with studio recording footage from their next release.  The EP is planned to include five new songs.  The band last released the EP, Artie Kaye, back in 2012 through Disconnect Disconnect Records.

Check out the band in the studio here.

Rebuke - Wouldworks



Disconnect Disconnect Records

Rating: 3/5




Sweden’s Rebuke has been waving the skate punk flag since their 2003 inception.  Their brand of 90’s skate punk falls comfortably in line with bands like the late Belvedere and Satanic Surfaces, adding to a backdrop of contemporary acts keeping the influential bands’ legacies alive and well.  While I’m not terribly familiar with Rebuke’s career, based on their sophomore full length, Wouldworks, the four-piece seems quite content existing in a no frills range of melodic skate punk which means Wouldworks isn’t overly ambitious; but I think that’s the point.

For starters, Rebuke play a clean melody but aren’t afraid to revel in skate punk’s messier traits.  “Bartenders & Tarbender” opens the album in a furry of crashing drumbeats held loosely together by vocalist Petter’s accented vocals and guitarist Sam’s steady riffs.  Unlike cleanly produced skate punk acts likeChaserRebuke embraces their rough imperfections (with “Edge” likely taking the crown for roughness).  Petter’s high vocals contain a scratchy coarseness, with his band mates’ backing harmonies coming across pleasantly off key.  But that isn’t to say Rebuke doesn’t have an element of refinement.  A reoccurring metallic edge heightens most riffs, offering an aggressive sense of targeted precision much in the vein of classics like Strung Out.

As for lyrics, Rebuke fits right in with their socially conscious peers.  Tracks like “Take To The Seas” take a disapproving stance towards society’s environmental neglect, comparing humanity’s wasteful course with plummeting helplessly into the baron depths of the ocean.  Others like “(It’s Not) Rocket Surgery” idealize “working together for the benefit of all” while smartly covering up the statement’s simplistic utopianism by admitting that their own eloquence could use a little work.  Simply put, Rebuke preaches a message of peace.  While not necessarily a groundbreaking revelation, unlike many of today’s egocentric artists, Rebuke’s message is one worth singing along to.

Overall, Wouldworks makes a fine addition to the Belvedere school of skate punk.  The boys in Rebuke are fast, melodic, and messy.  There’s nothing particularly profound here, but that shouldn’t discourage avid skate punkers from checking out Rebuke’s latest offering.  An easy recommendation.
