Last Rites


Last Rites This Is the Reaction LP

A pretty snappy release with lots of tuneful thrash. This Scottish aggregation has some of the drive of early DISCHARGE (especially in the guitar sound), and some of the hooks of, say, SOCIAL UNREST. In my book, that’s a damn good combination.

Last Rites Fascism Means War EP

A very likable new release from Scotland’s LAST RITES. The guitars are primitive, the production is raw, the lyrics are spot-on, and there are some irresistible sing-along segments on the A-side. “No Right to Take” is particularly seductive.
