Disguise - Signs Of The Future

'Signs Of The Future'

Review by Joey

Genre/s: D-Beat, Hardcore Punk
For Fans Of: Against, Disclose, Hellkontroll, No Fucker

I'm not sure if, in the last couple of years, there's more great raw punk coming out than usual, or if I'm just paying more attention lately; but the one thing I am certain of is that whether or not this is unusual, there is a lot of amazing fucking raw punk coming out. Ireland's Disguise does have the raw, the blownout guitar, and the d-beats, but they still manage to come off as fresh.

When I heard this band earlier this year, it reminded me of a perfect fusion of 90s-00s Japanese d-beat/raw punk (Disclose, Frigöra) and 80s US d-beat (Against, Crucifix). Honestly, I think that's the best description possible for this, musically. However, the guitar tone isn't just the usual screech and fuzz you'd be expecting; The fuzz is definitely there, but underneath it is a tone somewhat reminiscent of late 80s/early 90s Swedish death metal (Nihilist, Carbonized) which adds an interesting dimension to the raw punk formula. The riffs are sandwiched between crunch and fuzz, resulting in total punk destruction.

There's not a whole lot more I should have to say. If you like d-beat/raw punk you're going to love this (maybe), so check it out.
