Ultra Sect – War Of The Roses

LSM Vinyl and Contra Records

Written By Mark Jones

Ultra Sect may be a brand new band but there is no lack of experience in this 3 piece as the band features members from Those Unknown, Hounds & Harlots and the excellent Suede Razors. Based in the bay area of San Francisco the band are about to release their debut E.P ‘War Of The Roses’ through LSM Vinyl and Contra Records.

‘War Of The Roses’ mixes Bovver rock with British, French and American Oi! to give us 4 killer tracks that I guarantee will get you stomping along to. The E.P is full of great riffs, catchy melodies and well-written lyrics delivered brilliantly by Bryan which is evident on the excellent first track ‘Built To Last’, a cracking song I just can’t get out of my head.

If you think the start of this E.P was good then you are in for a treat because the anthems keep coming with ‘Class Hate’, ‘Set Sail’, 2 brilliantly written songs that I’m sure many bands would kill to have written. If I was forced to pick my favourite track off this release then I would have to go for ‘Turn Up The Oi!, a fast-paced gem of a song with a cracking singalong chorus.

There’s not much else to add other than to say you need this record in your collection and turn up the Oi!….Loud!
