Vopo's







Dead Entertainment, 1981
Conquer, 1983
The Price Of Being Young, 2005
Brand New, 2008
'Conquer' was already posted in the very beginning of this blog, because it is a fantastic album. Now here comes the rest of Vopo's production, and a new/better (louder) re-rip of the masterpiece Conquer. Yes the cover art is ugly, but the music rips and it was my first experience with what would be called crossover - before Broken Bones, before any other HC/punk band turned metal. I remember buying it because it received very very bad reviews in the metal press as well as in the punk zines. Too punk for the first and too metal for the latter, it had to be great - how would you dare going against the dominant orthodoxy! Red or long hair, you had to choose. And this is the only record I know with a song called Nuclear War that has accordion in it, and it works so well! Conquer is like the perfect mix of English Dogs and Warfare with better guitars. Groovy, heavy, with 12 fists in the air! I was floored then and today this record is still amazing. I wouldn't be so enthusiastic about Dead Entertainment, a collection of below-average-to-tedious basic '77 punk rock... And then they came back in 2005 with a re-recording CD with most of Dead Entertainment and 5 songs from Conquer. This CD RIPSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! They turned the early songs from D.E. into high octane punk anthems and the Conquer tracks into bombs of mid-paced thrash - the guitar picking is INTENSE!!! One of the most AMAZING re-recoding albums ever. If only they had redone the whole Conquer album... The song "In the book" is simply outstanding and sits in all my home made mp3 comps. Then the 2008 Brand New album demonstrates further the power and experience of these guys in the bone-crushing punk department. This is not Green Day! GENUINE KILLER PUNK THRASHING ZZEERR R RRR zerRRrrRrrRR!R!RRrR!Rr !R !RrRR RRRRRRRRRRR! r RR! !R!R!! !!!!
