Staten Island, NY punk rock crew The Blame make no bones about their confrontational attitude (“Fight”) or tell it like it is viewpoint regarding the state of the world (“Unknown Soldier”) on their 11-track eponymous offering. This no frills quartet’s sneering punk delivery and melodic hardcore punk predilections render a batch of catchy street punk influenced tunes blending a raucous sense of rebellion with a blue collar social commentary (“The Summer Song”), making this band’s subject matter smack you as hard in the face as their riffs (“Who Wants the World”). Chock full of piss and vinegar as well as a unmistakable Big Apple mindset of shooting first and asking questions as you pull the trigger (“One Life”), The Blame showcase that punk rock didn’t die in Gotham City once CBGB’s shut its doors down for good.
