04. Freedom fighter
Released by Bords De Seine in 2003.
(Update 8 December 2011: More information on various lineups of the band can be found in the comment section thanks to Milo and anonymous)
Hardhitting and militant Oi! from the backstreets of Brooklyn NY with close connections to both Oxblood and Fed Up! (also featured a member from Fed Up! at one point...stop me if i'm wrong). The band was started by Rene on drums, Dave on vocals, Avi on bass and David Bellevue on guitar. The band stuck together like they started (with one exception being Jesse replacing Dave on vocals in 2004) until 2006 when they went their seperate ways. They managed to release 2 EP's and appear on a couple of compilation albums. The tragic event of Kevin's death in 2010 made the group reunite for the benefit show but after that it has all been quiet so i dont think a new record is comming anytime soon.
The band hit me like a brick the first time i heard them with aggro lyrics and a fastpaced sound that reminded me a lot about Oxblood in a way. All songs on the EP are violent as hell but still dont become childish or sound ubermacho like the lyrics from bands like Fear City.
Even if i like the sound better with the new singer this is one hell of a release.
