Bad People - Movement (2013)
On Movement, Bad People offer a twist on hardcore punk styles of drumming and guitar-lines, bringing down the tempo to heavy rock ranges, but concentrating the intensity for a solid punch. Like the soundtrack to an epic pub brawl, the band combines tasty riffs with merciless beat-downs, eschewing vocals in favor of letting the instruments say everything that needs to be said. That's echoed in the composition of the songs, which rarely break the five-minute mark, but successfully pack distinct attitudes into each track, even as they flow smoothly from one to the next. If you dig on heavy rock with some aggressive attitude worked into it, be sure to give this lot a listen; that's easy to do, because they've been kind enough to let us put up "At The Bottom Of The World" for you to download, there at the bottom, so that you can check it out for yourself!
