The Minority Print – Down Memory Lane


The Minority Print – Down Memory Lane
Self released – 2012
Rock, Punk, Hard, Metal, Stoner
Rated: ***


From the dark and twisted streets of Sint-Niklaas, Belgium comes a four piece rock outfit that can just as easily write catchy punk tunes as heavy hard rocking anthems. As they have proven with their first EP Beyond All Doubt from 2011 and their new three track Down Memory Lane. And then to think that The Minority Print has only been around since 2010. But the Belgian folk noticed their aptitude fast for they have already played on Marktrock Leuven and even on the Graspop Metal Meeting. They take their cues from the likes of Foo Fighters and Danko Jones; but mix this up with some old school hardrock we know from the eighties, punk we heard in the nineties and a little ageless metal twist. And loaded within their easy and agreeable sound is a set of balls to pull of some splendid guitar-lines and top-notch solos. Not to mention some massive hard-hitting drums interchanged with incredibly airy percussion. Conclusion: this is some tasty energetic rock served in tidy portions. Enjoy your meal!

  1. Easy digestible and good for the stomach, but it could use a bit more grime, grease and grit!
