The Russians are coming Marty! The Black Russians that is with their latest release, “Death By Communism”. This Soviet Era Pop Punk band is heavily influenced by the Ramones. Truth be told I am in love with this record. From the wicked 80s style guitar solos, kick ass drums, to the thumping bass lines. The vocals are very similar to the Queers, yet there’s still a nod to Johnny Ramone in there.
My personal favorite track is Leningrad Beach. It may be an ode to The Ramones – “Rockaway Beach”, but the Black Russians present this song in a pure skate punk format. This is perfect melodic hardcore at its best. I want to grab my board and hit the streets just listening to this song.
Black Russians – “My Mommie Is A Commie”
“My Mommie is a commie and she’s running from the CIA”
My second favorite track is, “Mommie Is A Commie”. Talk about a song that is super catchy. The guitar hooks are wicked. I am sure hoping this gets a vinyl release at this point even in the review! To be perfectly honest all of these tracks are killer! Time for me stop ranting. Black Russians new, “Death By Communism” should immediately join your download collection. Don’t be surprised later when CPRA says, “We Told Ya So”.
