Rife with boisterous gang chants, pulsating energy and an overall exceptionally tight and aggressive attack, VIOLENT REACTION incites unrest through classic hardcore/oi anthems in the spirit of Negative Approach, Blitz, The 4-Skins, Straight Ahead and 86 Mentality, delivered through a wholly modern sound. The band’s first release for Revelation Records comes by way of Marching On, a fourteen-song tirade which is over in just nineteen minutes, leaving the listener beaten, bloodied, and empowered to rise immediately back up, a prime example of why this band is unquestionably one of the top-tier acts of their scene.
