Vietcong Pornsurfers-We Spread Diseases


Vietcong Pornsurfers are a delectable punk band with a heavy rock influence on their sound which is almost reminiscent of The Misfits at times. This Swedish four piece have a sound filled with crunchy riffs and sleaze rock songwriting that should appeal to many a metaller. Their new album We Spread Diseases is a powerful tribute to the magic of heavy rock, topped off with sexual boasts, rock anthems, and odes to drugs.  The Vietcong Pornsurfers are truly fun to listen too and fills the listener up with a crazy rock and roll energy that grabs the listener by the head and drowns them under their musical might.

From the opening crash of Marcel you know you're in for a fun ride. A couple tracks later and the listener is bombarded by The Best Song Ever, another example of the bands penchant for showcasing a rock and roll swagger. The group does a particularly good job of using powerful refrains to get the listener singing along, it makes me think that these guys must be a blast to see live. The songs are all fairly short and given their relatively sparse structure this is probably for the better. In addition it gives the music a lot more spontaneity and keeps the record fresh. Suffice to say, as I listen to this album I'm enamored by the raw power of the band and the spicy guitar playing that keeps the music fun.

In conclusion, if you're looking for hard hitting and fun rock and roll replete with the magic of Guns n Roses this is the band for you. With nothing to complex Vietcong Pornsurfers appeal from the first listen. Exciting and explosive We Spread Diseases should make waves when it's released on May 20th. This is a band who try to invoke the crazy glam rocking days on the Sunset Strip back in the 80s and reinvigorate it with a modern metal might. A band with a wide potential appeal I'm curious to see the public reaction to We Spread Diseases!
