If you’ve been thinking that you’d like to pay more attention to what’s happening in hardcore but don’t know where to start, here’s a good jumping-in point: The hard-as-fuck UK straightedge band Violent Reaction, whose debut album Marching On arrives next week. British oi and streetpunk have been huge influences on American hardcore going back decades, and it’s interesting to see that influence boomerang back around and manifest itself in a British band. Marching On really brings nothing new, but the band plays with absolute speed and vigor and conviction, and it’s a hard thing to deny. We’ve already posted the title track, but now you can stream the whole album below.
