Punk: Year in Review 2010
Turbonegro. Zeke. Discharge. Poison Idea. Instinctively bleak, explosively angry and unequivocally sinister, these bands redefined the true essence of extreme music, spawning the evil bastard child, punk. With the vicious antagonism of this debut, Toronto's Burning Love are poised to join these prestigious ranks of those imposing, cryptic and decadent outfits. Detuned and thunderous while still melodically brilliant, gritty and raw, Songs For Burning Lovers is a rapid-fire dose of biting riffs, palpitating beats and pulverizing vocals. The charged instincts and virulent power of these massive aural munitions makes it an instant―and amaranthine― punk classic.
