« A Dissident » is the latest album from Victims, recorded by Linus Wiklund with assistance from Nicko from Entombed. When the first chords of opener « Theft » interrupt the album’s haunting intro, it’s apparent that the years under their belt have only allowed Victims to become even more charged. For nearly a half hour « A Dissident » rages full bore from one punk/hardcore anthem to the next. Songs like « In Control », « We Are Not The Future », and « Nowhere In Time » carry the kind of heavy hooks that most bands can only dream of creating in their tenure. While « Broken Bones » and « Victims In Blood Pt. 6 » are flawless examples of the classic hardcore/metal crossover power that they are known for. Victims’ unrelenting ferocity, unforgettable choruses, and swedish quest for perfection has pushed the blueprint of their influences (Motorhead, Discharge, etc.) to a new contemporary level. And with the release of « A Dissident », Victims have cemented their place among the leaders, not followers, in today’s true underground punk/hardcore scene.
