The second post of 2015 could only be about that that has the name of the Evil Entity. Satan 666!
The first EP is the hardcore staple that never ages, it is one landmark of greatness, a blueprint in the style. What an amazing little record. 32 years later, still as pissed off and vicious as day one. Thank you State. Then, when I first heard False Power, I had this aftertaste in my mouth that had also been left by the second Die Kreuzen or White Pigs albums. What, incursions into hard rocking territories, wasn't that treason? I wanted more binary thrash! Ah, but once this reaction of the punk immune system driven by teenager hormones wore off, the beauty and the world class of False Power could do their magic and put the album in the unmovable Zer City central park. The return of 2006 is also a great thing, back to the early hardcore formula. It exactly sounds like what it is : the revival of early youth by middle aged, inspired punk rock musicians. Excellent and energetic! I have no idea if the band is still roaming or plans to do anything else, but in any case we can only be grateful for such killer music. Zer State til the ned of time!
