Strike Anywhere - Nightmares of The West LP
STRIKE ANYWHERE (Virginia, USA) - Nightmares of The West (2020) (sealed LP; colour is unknown). You would find it hard to believe that STRIKE ANYWHERE’s latest EP, Nightmares of the West, is their first offering in 10 years as the lyrical content, filled with leftist politically charged angst is still as relevant and poignant today as it was a decade ago. 2020 especially is a year of hardships, trials and tribulations and loss that has ultimately fuelled a burning desire for change and an urge to seek answers for a plethora of injustice spread throughout the world.
STRIKE ANYWHERE, like their genre counterparts, ANTI-FLAG and RISE AGAINST are capable of creating melodic yet powerful Hardcore Punk Rock anthems and Nightmares of the West is another set of well-crafted tracks that add to their already notable back catalogue. You get exactly what you’d imagine from a STRIKE ANYWHERE record, they are still bringing the fire that they had from many years ago and their music will still act as a catharsis to many still battling through their own nightmares. **originally published on distortedsoundmag.com** Pure Noise Records – PNE280
