Punitive Damage – “Strike Back” 7″
Hardcore punk band from Vancouver, British Columbia and also Seattle, Washington, who follow-up their 2020 debut EP that was released on Convulse Records by joining the roster of ever-reliable Atomic Action! Records. Effective blasts of outrage-fueled hardcore, it’s hardly breaking new ground – you can reference Dropdead, G.L.O.S.S., Torso, and countless others that are active today (Gel, Dry Socket, Haircut etc) – but when it is done as bang-on as this, and with the right helpings of explosive (and catharitc) energy, who cares? The job is done, and there are no complaints. Leaves you hungry for more more – which, let’s face it, is always better than being over-stuffed and left wanting less.
