Violent Soho: Good vibes, Good times

It’s been a year since the release of Violent Soho’s fourth album, ‘WACO’. During 2016, I became a fan, which involved making the spontaneous decision to see Violent Soho live…in Australia. The only band that I have ever travelled to the other side of the world for.

I regret nothing.

‘WACO’ has that balance of heavy and melodic riffs along with lyrics that fits so well with the music. Every song leads you on a journey that never stops for a breather, songs like ‘Slow Wave’ and ‘Viceroy’ that makes you feel like you’re on top of a mountain. It was this album that made them stand out at a time when I was losing an interest in anything that wasn’t low growls and blast beats. It reignited a love for a genre that made me a rock and metal fan a long time ago. Violent Soho are one of those bands that are exactly what you get on the tin. Fun and chaotic on record and on stage, something that everyone should see once or a couple dozen times.

With their ever growing popularity and successes in their homeland ,Australia, I’m excited to see what is next for Violent Soho, and the chance to see them again.
