Cubone's Brigade- Train & Destroy EP review
Cubone’s Brigade- Train & Destroy EP review
Poke-core? I never thought this would see the day. For the single reason that this is Pokemon-infused youth crew-styled hardcore punk, you should immediately check this out. However, if that is unsuitable, it can be summed up in greater detail. This is good old youth crew, fast/ slow parts and poetic vocalists intact, and the lyrics are all about Pokemon-based stuff. To be honest, you were either a Pokemon kid or you weren’t. If you were, and you happen to like punk/ hardcore as well, then you will adore this. If not, then you might view this with some skepticism. However, much of my childhood is rooted in this little universe (With a pen, paper, and some time, I could probably name all 150 originals), so I loved it. You should too.
