The Basementones are a four piece Punk ‘N’ Roll band from Tampere, Finland. Four years since the release of their debut album ‘Let There Be Noise’ they are back with a furiously addictive E.P ‘No Ease, No Rest, No Mercy’ through the excellent German label Undead Artists.
Kicking things off is ‘The Call’, a thumping bass heavy beast of a song which had my feet tapping along in no time. This is followed by ‘Green Bastards’ which is just under two and a half minutes of genius. ‘Cellmates Of Lunacy’ is next before ‘The House’, an outlaw country sounding song which for me is the best track on the E.P. Bringing things to a close is the excellent ‘No Regrets’ a furious blast of Punk ‘N’ Roll, and the only disappointing thing is that there is nothing to come after this.
‘No Ease, No Rest, No Mercy is an absolute gem of a release and will no doubt be on my stereo for several months to come.
