Defiant 2006Collectable, Limited Editions, Rock
Review from ‘Punkmusic.about.com’
There are tons of great songs on this album. The melodic anthem, “Don’t Let the B***ards Grind You Down” has all of the qualities of a true old school anthem, with all of its message and energy, paired with a chorus that will easily get a crowd pumping its collective fist. “Defiant” has a catchy riff that reminds me a bit of “Summertime Blues” for a moment, and then digs deep into an ’80s-era punk hook and yet-another fist-pumping chorus. It’s nice to hear that time hasn’t mellowed Beki Bondage, but has made her a better singer teamed up with better musicians who can keep it together as they hammer out tight thrash riffs. While she occasionally sounds like more than a few different ’80s icons, the band always lets you know this is old school British hardcore punk – played a lot better than many of the bands did it when they were first trying it.
