NYC Oi! featuring members of SKIN DISORDER, OFFENSIVE WEAPON & THE INFILTRATORS that began in 2000. This 7″ is a recording from a 2004 session that was just released in 2011.
The production is solid, good bass presence, gruff vocals, aggressive guitar, and fast-paced drums, make for a great release. FRONTLINE SOLDIERS include some hardcore in their Oi!, particularly on “Warrior Rising” and it just helps put the song over the top with the added power. The five songs on Oath Of Loyalty are all well-done, played with force and have angry sounding vocals, perfect for cranking up and playing over and over again. These guys really kicked ass on this release.
It’s a shame that FRONTLINE SOLDIERS never got the popularity they deserved when they were together, but at least we have this reminder of what a great band they were.
