Album Review: No Heaven
BandCamp [Rad Girlfriend Records], BandCamp [A.D.D. Records], Rad Girlfriend Records [Vinyl], A.D.D. Records [CD], iTunes)
The Slow Death’s No Heaven is a ridiculous catchy record of punk rock ‘n’ roll that perfectly straddles the street punk, pop punk, ’77 style, and Midwestern punk sub-genres which isn’t surprising considering this band is made up of former members of The Soviettes, Dillinger Four, The Turkletons, and Pretty Boy Thorson. From start to finish, this record is really, really good. Granted, The Slow Death isn’t breaking any new ground with this album but what they do, they do exceptionally well. This is the kind of album that should appeal to all different kinds of punk and indie rock fans. No Heaven has the potential to be one of 2013’s sleepers and will definitely be on my best-of list for this year.
