Timebomb Records & Hellnation Records
Written by Mark Jones
Bomber 80 are an Italian band from Firenze that mix classic Italian Oi! With streetpunk to create powerful anthems that are full of great melodies and massive choruses. ‘Contro Il Tempo’ was originally released on vinyl in 2017 by Hellnation Records but has now been released on CD by brand new label Timebomb Records for their first release.
The ten melodic anthems on the album are all sung in their native language and makes for a great listen. Right from opener ‘Cruda e Vera’ to the final track ‘Mentre Guardo Il Cielo’ the band have me hooked with fast paced anthems full of great riffs and melodies that sound great played loud with a few beers. There are many highlights on this album including ‘Mollo Tutto’, Su La Testa’, ‘Picchia Forte’ and ‘DIY’, but for me my favourite track is the brilliant ‘In Loving Memory’.
Bomber 80 have given us an excellent album that I’ve had on heavy rotation for the last few weeks and will have for some time to come. I would strongly recommend giving ‘Contro Il Tempo’ a listen I’m glad I did.
