Sick Of It All - Brudenell Social Club - Leeds - 31st January 2015 Live Review


If you so much as have your toe in the realm of punk and hardcore, then you're likely to be aware of Sick Of It All. They were one of the scene's pioneering bands of the late 80s and 90s, being one of the best at injecting metal tones into the genre and they're still influencing new bands to this day.

For starters, though, we had Swan Song who were, quite frankly, insane. Their frontman was nuts, swinging his mic like a lasso, climbing the wall between the bar and stage floor, and screaming two centimetres from people's faces.

Their songs were more 80s influenced with their swagger-laced riffs and catchy fills. They leant towards rock 'n' roll fun which was undercut by livid vocals, like Black Flag in their more accessible moments.  

Broken Teeth ignited the first pits of the night, but had the weakest songs and didn't give that good a performance to make up for it. They didn't stand out from any other modern hardcore (or 'beatdown') band and, aside from their frontman stomping and jumping around a bit, the band played their songs with much less enthusiasm than their fans' reaction to it.
