Swedish hardcore/crossover/thrashers Negative Self’s bassist Frank Guldstrand recommended us to give a good look to this Stockholm punk/hardcore band, Powerface. In his own words: “Power Face, this is a brand new, hardcore out of the back alleys of Stockholm’s suburbs. Take the most snotty hardcore you’ve ever heard and add some Judas Priest and you have Power Face!”

‘Pushing the limit, faster, faster
No matter the question, rock is the answer’

My beloved chief editor in Metal Invader thought it was undoubtedly cool to make me sit my dumb ass in my desk in the middle of fuckin’ summer to write a review of some Swedish crossover / hardcore / punks, as he told me. ‘Awesome’ I said to myself and with the Volos Heats beating the Air-Conditions I opened my PC and clicked on the bandcamp link of Power Face (physical promos is out of question in the year of 2015; how much I miss the good ol’ days!).

So, if you are a die-hard reader of Metal Invader, you should have already checked out a mini feature about them in the Keep It Real section (http://metalinvader.net/keep-it-real-power-face-7-by-power-face/).

Power Face is a brand new band from the Stockholm’s alleys, roaming in the streets like rats with bandanas, spitting hardcore / punk / crossover with an old school heavy metal flavor in the ‘normal’ people’s faces.

Their 7-song debut 7″ was just released by P.P.P. Records (also home for a bunch of underground metal / punk / hardcore swedish bands), Farsot, Monument and aldrig över min kofot and it’s a masterpiece of no fills / no thrills old school whatever music.

I definitely enjoy it and, as I read in the article above, Power Face are approved by Negative Self (a.k.a. the Swedish Suicidal Tendencies), so who am I to disagree?!

Check it out for sure. Thanks to George (that beloved chief editor I told you in the beginning of the review) for pushing me to return to my reviewing duty. Send me more boss!

‘Mesmerized, cuts so deep / Nevernevernevernevernever going to sleep
Hardcore punks keep it up all night / Feedback, stage dives, fucking right!’

Review by: metalinvader.net

 

Fan vad bra den här är. Mina tankar drar direkt till Gorilla Biscuits och hela den genren av amerikansk hardcore. Men samtidigt mitt i allt ös kan det dyka upp ett tungt jävla rock n roll riff. Det är väl på det sättet Power Face känns lite egna. När man gör det bra, så som Power Face gör , så kan det bli riktigt effektfullt, och det blir det verkligen här. För min del brukar en 7" vara lagom när det handlar om hardcore men jag skulle gärna klämma in ett par låtar till. Det blir liksom aldrig tråkigt och det är ett riktigt gott betyg när det kommer från mig. Skivan innehåller 7 låtar och speltiden är dryga 10 högkvalitativa minuter. Låt er inte luras av att sluskarna i bandet snarare ser ut som någon form av mix mellan heavy metal och crust-grabbar, för det ni får är snabb, arg och jävligt bra hardcore och det säger man ju inte nej till.
