A Classic and Catchy Punk Record from Mad Splatter


A recent album release from Mad Splatter delivers tons of elements of classic punk and pop punk that are derived from influences that come from the late seventies and early '80s in the genre and the whole thing has as much color as it does edginess, and it's packed to the brim with character which is something that you end up getting attached to very quickly.


The Songs To Murder Your Lovers By album is a blistering and energetic record that thrashes out with a joyous vibrancy and even the guitar tone and drum sound are super on point with the aesthetic that they're going for which is again, that classic punk rock approach and it works like a charm.


One of the things that really gets me about this record is the endless energy and almost live performance feel like the players are feeding off of each other the whole time which leads me to believe that some of these songs were recorded live on the floor.


Even if I'm wrong about the whole alive on the floor thing, listening to this record definitely makes you want to go see this whole thing performed in your face because then it would just be amazing.


I think it's hard to capture this kind of energy on record the way that these guys do but they do it without a hitch and with such a natural feel that it seems like they've been doing this forever and hey, maybe they have.


All of these songs have super memorable and catchy choruses that are absolutely huge, and they all bring with them a sonic presence that's massive.


This record feels really good to listen to, it gets your blood pumping, it's packed with charisma and vigor, and the songwriting is outstanding because some of these songs feel like you've been listening to them for years on the radio while others feel like they could have served as part of the soundtrack to certain chapters of your own life.


What I mean by that is, that some of these songs feel nostalgic to me and remind me of songs that I listened to growing up because of the way that they nail the feel and vibe of their sound is so perfectly done that it gives me that warmth when I listen to this record.


These guys make me think of the Ramones, Misfits, and plenty more along those lines but they also have their own twist to it and their approach is really vivacious and alive.


This is one of those records that you absolutely must listen to from beginning to end and I'm sure you have 19 minutes to do so don't try and tell me you don't.


If you're a punk rock fan of almost any kind, then this album is 100% for you and you can tell that these guys have such a blast doing their thing even on record, that their sense of heart is infectious when you listen to the songs.


You can actually sort of feel the love they have for what they're doing.


I feel like more bands need to portray that the way that these guys do.


Upon listening to this album, I took to the band Spotify an outstanding number of releases starting in 2009 that range from singles to EPs and even full-length albums, and it was incredibly fun for me to listen to a lot of this stuff because you can actually sort of hear the evolution of this band and that's something I love doing when I find a band I dig.


Mad Splatter is definitely one of those standout punk bands that have loads to offer and do it for the love of doing it which is what all bands should be focused on.


This record is a killer from start to finish and I would suggest you listen to the whole thing because if you don't, you'll be missing out on what some of this record has to offer and that would just be a shame.


Dig into this album as soon as you can and when you do, turn it nice and loud because you won't regret it.
