DAGGERPLAY "SUBTERRANEAN REALITY"   2018 RED SKY - A storming start to this album. a kind of veiled Country style hard rocker, sounds crazy but its a brilliant opening track and gets the adrenalin pumping.  A great Instrumental rockin' jam. CRUEL WIND BLOWING - Punk Power Pop with a Rockabilly style, this is just an aswesome track, fast tempo daring the listener to stay still! Brilliant.     DON'T GIVE UP - Reminds me of The Clash or Generation X with its late 70s Punk Pop.  Love it.  Great stuff from Finland's finest. BLACK RIVER - Atmospheric almost Ska backing like Madness until it burns up into a raw 70s Punk/Classic Rock smash. GIRL, IT'S GONNA GET BETTER OR JUST WORSE - This is a hybrid of Elvis Costello and Blink 182.  Great vocals by Pekko Mantzin. DAYS LIKE THESE - Scandinavian Power Pop similar to Roxette, great melodies and an uptempo tantalising beat.  Catchy too! FOUR WALLS - Alice Cooper meets


DAGGERPLAY   "URBAN CAMPFIRE SONGS" 2013   HIGH ROADS & HOLLOWAYS - The debut album by the Finnish rockers kicks off in frenetic style.  A track that seems to be a hybrid of Sex Pistols and The Clash.  Pulsating beat and thrashing guitars with equally manic vocals.  Great opening! BRAINFUCK EUPHORIA - Another cleverly melodious Punk Rock track, the chanted vocals remind me of 80s band Tenpole Tudor and a little Green Day but more rockier.  Surprisingly gets more catchy the more you listen! BLIND HORSES - This track reminds me of Gogol Bordello's brilliant Gypsy Punk Folk.  Imagine an all out rocky sea shanty and this is it! Quirky and fun! GLITTER RODEO - A fast paced song with musical backing that is kind of New Wave Punk, something like early Blondie, The Ramones or Generation X with typically sneery Billy Idol-like vocals.  A great track. NOW I WANNA LISTEN TO THE RAMONES - Ironically I just mentioned The Ramones and here they get a namecheck.  This is classic
