Frantic speed metal, riffs for miles and gang chants galore
Portugal act Alien Squad foist their brand of crossover to the masses with the strangely titled 'From Alienation to an Alien Nation'. We are in that day and age where I can't decipher clever from ridiculous. The band originated in the late 80s and skirt the fine line of punk and speed metal. Intensity and effort? It comes in droves. There are a ton of tracks to choose from, appropriately clocking in less than three minutes each. 'Midnight Wild Monsters' is frantic speed metal, riffs for miles and gang chants galore. There isn't much variance, but at breakneck speed who's gonna notice.
