Starting out in Gothenburg 2007, rock ‘n’ roll band The Kendolls quickly evolved into a hardworking, struggling and touring unit. Their debut album was released in the spring of 2011 and received excellent reviews in Scandinavia and Europe. In spring 2013 the band played 25 shows across Europe and released their second album “Dirty Dogma”. New drummer Kenneth and bass player Kosse joined the band and recorded a new EP in the end of 2013. New blood and talent resulted in an improved, harder sound, but still sustaining the raw nerve that defines the band. That new EP is called ‘Diablo Gringo’ and they will rock the shit out of you.
The Ep only contains 4 hardcore punk songs and lasts for about 11min but I was hooked from the first second until the last. This is some good mojo!
When the first song “Clandestino” begins you immediately get sucked into a raw punk hole from which there is no escape! You can hear and even taste the energy the band has from start to finish. The song and actually every song is full of variation that will keep your full attention. These are all hardcore punk songs with a raw punk vocalist called Oskar. Well Oskar and co, you produced something great.
It’s hard for me to pick out a favorite song because all four of them are just outstanding. It’s been a while since I was so enthusiastic about an EP like this. The energy and the atmosphere throughout this EP is so catchy. Clandestino, Equally Useless, Diablo Gringo and White Hustle each can stand on their own.
If you’re a fan of pure raw punk this EP is a must have! Please listen to this EP and let this band dazzle you!
