Review:Penetration Panthers-Perpetual 80's

2011

First of all, this band has one of the more awesome names that I have come across in quite some time. That being said, the music is also extremely rad. Featuring members of Gehenna and Gravehill, Penetration Panthers rip through 3 tracks of raging 80's hardcore that comes off to me sounding like a cross between My War era Black Flag, Black Sabbath and Flipper with a healthy layer of grime thrown in for good measure. They also manage to write some amazingly catchy jams despite the raw production. This is a great introduction to the band and I am extremely excited for the band's upcoming LP. It just goes to show you that sometimes no frills and straight to the point is the best way to go. Anyone looking for a newer band heavily influenced by the days of old should check this out now. Kudos to A389 Records for another awesome release. Perpetual 80's indeed.
