System System! LP

Basic ’77 punk with no surprises. I’m not sure why, but most German hardcore groups are still mired in the slow ’70s punk tradition. The SYSTEM display little power, no intensity, and undistinguished songwriting. “Knall sie ab” is the best of this batch of material, but someone should send these guys a MINOR THREAT or NECROS EP to show them how it’s done in the ’80s.
