brantly I certainly hear the Rik Agnew influence in this Italian band's causitc dark punk rock, but it's an equal amount of the Adolescents as it is Christian Death, and, odd as this may sound, it sounds like a death rock version of the Dead Boys, and I'm sure you're saying, 'wouldn't that just be the Lords of the New Church?' it wouldn't. A solid goth-y punk rock single!

    Italy's anarcho death rockers DYSTOPIAN SOCIETY are back with a brand new vinyl EP on Mass Media. Its called "Violations" and captures the hardest edges of the bands classic death rock sound. With the infusion of a new drummer and subsequent regular live gigs all around the Eurozone, Dystopian Society continue with their mixture of the traditional sound of goth punk such as CHRISTIAN DEATH and PART 1 with an unmistakable anarcho-punk lyrical sensibility. The title track here is a perfect example of why we love this band. Once the shimmering guitar line rises above the distorted guitars and Max bellows in horror of the modern day crawl to self prescribed extinction, we are there. Indeed we do live in a dystopian society despite all of our modern distractions and petty contentment. The power that has corrupted men continues to wreak havoc upon the earth and the true horror is that for the most part we think the greatest struggles are behind us...
