Action Sedition / Streets Of Rage – Split 10″

10″ Vinyl



From Oi Oi Music:

This is a release I was looking forward to. Streets Of Rage hail from France and released a full-length and split EP before while Action Sedition are a new band from the French speaking part of Canada.

On their previous releases Streets Of Rage made a huge impression on me with their melodic approach of streetpunk music. On their new recordings they moved away from the streetpunk sound and adopted a more hardcore orientated style. I’m not sure if they had a line-up change. However, the transmission to the new sound works out well and the band sounds quite natural, like they never have done different before.

The band recorded three songs, which are a little bit on the short side, but it’s the quality that counts. My favourite is Nancy Youth Crew, a song with typical HC breaks, sing-a-longs, etc.

Action Sédition from Quebec, Canada released a debut CD by theirselves, but apparently i missed that release. This split 10″ is their first release in vinyl format.

The band recorded three songs for this split EP, all sung in French. The band plays streetpunk but some guitarlines and drum rhythms disclose some d-beat influences from bands like From Ashes Rise or Wolfbrigade.

The band works with two vocalists, male and female, and especially on a song like Class Contre Class this works out very well, although opening song La Haine is an excellent song as well. (Oi Oi Music)

From Tres Flechas

They did it again! Great split from these 2 antifa bands. ACTION SEDITION are the new BRIGADA FLORES MAGON, Three songs, sung in French. Two singers, (boy and girl), political lyrics, excellent Oi sounds. If you are tired of a bunch of apolitical bands, this is for you. STREETS OF RAGE! Oi-fuckin-core is how they define their style. From France, STREETS OF RAGE show us how HC should be playing by skins. Three great songs, some New York Old School HC mixed with Oi (that you almost don’t notice), excellent work! (Tres Fleches)

From Underdog zine:

Streets Of Rage beschwören ihre (Nancy-)Crew und scheinen immer nur eines zu wollen: keep the fight. Mit wenigen Modulitäten ausgestattet, erreichen die simplen und straighten Riffs und Akkorde ein Ausknocken in der 12. Runde, tänzeln aber auch ein wenig, um den Gegner mürbe zu machen, um dann gnadenlos anzugreifen und die Straße zurückzuerobern oder das, was davon übrig geblieben ist.

Action Sedition führen ihren Klassenkampf weiter und sind musikalisch fitter, druckvoller, als noch auf der “History Lessons”-Split. Und auch der Song “Classe contre classe” ist reifer und überzeugt spieltechnisch. Die hervorragende Gitarrenarbeit peitscht die Stimmung voran und hebt den Schunkel-Pogo-Faktor enorm. Tolle Weiterentwicklung der RASH-Combo aus Quebeq, die mit ihrem dritten Song “Nous Ne Reculerons Pas” einen Abräumer hinlegen, ein exzellentes Male/female-Wechselspiel mit Biss, Härte und Solidarität.
