The Decline – Resister

Following some line-up changes earlier this year, The Decline are back in full effect with album number three. And not to worry, “Resister” still has everything on offer that you have come to love about these Aussies.

Kicking things off with the appropriately titled “New Again”, The Decline immediately shift into high gear and race off with frantic riffs, fast-as-fuck drums, catchy hooks and slick choruses. And to top it all off they don’t say no to the occasional solo in between the witty, rapid-fire lyrics. It makes for one hell of a nice slice of 90ies skatepunk.

Sure, we’ve all heard No Use For A Name, Lagwagon and NOFX before. But rather than simply copying from the masters, these guys continue to give a tried-and-true formula a modern sound on yet another high quality punkrock album that will have you smiling right up until closing track “Start Again”.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
