Amplify – Deadlines

Amplify – Deadlines
Self released – 2019 (Jan 19th)
Skatepunk, Melodic Hardcore
Rated: ****

Hailing from Spain, Amplify are rooted in melodic hardcore but have the infectious groove of skatepunk. Plenty of distorted, chugging riffs are thrown around with the occasional tasteful solo to liven things up. The political lyrics and songs on Deadlines would not sound out of place on a Propaghandi album but with the more open passion of Strike Anywhere or Hot Water Music. For a new band, they certainly hold their own against the above bands – while not inventing the wheel, they are going to be worth watching out for – also if they ever play live in your area, this sort of music screams out to be heard in the flesh. And because they are good guys – its Name Your Price on Bandcamp.
