Genre: Crust/Hardcore Punk
Label: Tragedy Records
Tragedy need no introduction. Since the release of their self-titled debut in 2000 up tothis very day, they have managed to become one of the greatest bands in their genre, influencing a lot of other bands, our “own” Procrastinate included. It has been 6 years since the release of their previous album “Darker Days Ahead” and it was about time for their long-awaited new album “Fury”. Words can’t really express how great their new release is. Fast, violent and with no need less fan fare, its shows us exactly why Tragedy are such a known band. It may be less dark compared to a couple of previous albums but, at the same time, it is as angry, if not more, and it could be a return to their earlier, rawer days of the band. 6 songs, made of pure dynamite form “Fury”, something that leads us to the only negative thing I can say about this release, its duration. Don’t get me wrong, “Fury” is amazing, with each song being an example of how real d-beat/crust sounds like but, unfortunately, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s only 17 minutes (minus 2 seconds), something that makes us wanting more, while thinking” wait…what? where’s the rest of it?!” The only viable, for now, solution is… listening to it again. And again. And again. Thankfully “Fury” is so good that listening to it more than once doesn’t give birth to boredom. “Fury” is highly recommended to every lover of extreme music, not just crust fans. And, if you are still thinking if it’s worth it, the answer is pretty simple. Get to their band camp and listen to their new release, while realizing that your body has its own will and that, subconsciously, you want to destroy everything around you.
