Artist: The Blood Album: The Blood
Genre: Punk
RIYL: UK Subs, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Last Resort
[A reminiscence of UK 80s’ punk] The album features all the elements what a old-school punk band should have - straightforward riffs and sprawling solos, accompanied by a drunk vox style. The first half of the album is milder while the second half becomes more excited.
FCC clean

*1. (3.20)- blurred and crunchy guitar tones with short/rushed riffs; repetitive lyrics; chaotic and boisterous
2. (2.23)- sprawling solos accompany with simple riff patterns; Be careful that the music stops suddenly at the end!
**3. (3.14)- Piano intro; more intense drumming than previous tracks plus more powerful vox, deeper guitar tones; nice harmonic noise
4. (2.16)- rough and abrasive; crusty solo
**5. (3.48)- hasty riffs with straightforward drumming; the nice control of tempo throughout the whole song really gets you moving
6. (3.10)- atmosphere darker than previous tracks; rock n’ roll power chords; Note: Music stops abruptly!
7. (2.35)- brash; raucous plus cracked vox; ends with a loose solo
