Moscow Death Brigade – Radio Hope (Fire And Flames)

If you’d told twenty-year-old me that in a few short decades, I’d be losing my mind and singing along with a duo of hardcore, hip-hop-loving graffiti artists and circle pit revolutionaries from the heart of the former USSR, he’d have probably flipped you the bird and walked away laughing. 

No matter how much younger me wouldn’t want to hear it, the truth is Moscow Death Brigade is the hardest-hitting, walk it-like-they-talk-it hardcore-influenced band in the scene right now, and with Radio Hope, their (I think) third album, they’re continuing their unchallenged march to the top of the punk rock food chain. Yeah, it’s that good. 

The ten immediately infectious anthems on Radio Hope are built around MDB’s trademark fusion of hardcore, hip hop, high-energy dance, electronica, and metal, ALL of which feature guest artists (Jen Pop, Hoya Roc, Rob from Born From Pain, and more), reinforcing the idea that music is universal, the scene is a global entity and that unity is the driving force behind everything that MDB does, represents and stands for. 

Radio Hope is a little poppier than Boltcutter and Bad Accent Anthems, but that doesn’t lessen its impact. If anything, it ensures that the band’s message hits harder, as there isn’t a tune on this album that you won’t be dancing to, and singing along with after spinning it a couple of times. If you haven’t signed on the MDB dotted line, tune into Radio Hope and get ready to join the Crocodile Crew. MDB and Radio Hope will change your life for the better and make you believe that the world can, and should, be a better place… Tim Cundle
