Sickoids are a three piece with members of Witch Hunt and Government Warning, and there are elements of both of these bands to be found in the music on this six track 12-inch, the follow-up to their self-titled LP. That means what you get is a no holds barred attack borne out of the general frustrat.
Sickoids are a three piece with members of Witch Hunt and Government Warning, and there are elements of both of these bands to be found in the music on this six track 12-inch, the follow-up to their self-titled LP. That means what you get is a no holds barred attack borne out of the general frustrations of life, be they personal or social, with a virulent tone from start to finish. That tone is built into a sound that encompasses American hardcore and also the U.K.-centric, anarchic scene of the 1980s, thus providing the perfect backdrop for venting annoyance and dissatisfaction—which is there from the beginning with the opening track “Occupy Your Time.” This song builds into an all-out assault of guitar, bass and drums representing what Sickoids are all about. On repeated plays what comes through more are the little leads etc. that the guitar adds to this track, to give it more of a broad sound rather than it just being a collection of chords. In fact, there is a lot to be heard going on under the hood when this record is played over and over, and it would be wrong to mark it down as just a thrashy punk release, as it really does benefit from an excellent production job.
