      Charged GBH- one of the most legendary and longest lasting bands in the history of UK punk. Since 1978, GBH has raised hell non-stop. Their releases, with sounds ranging from classic punk to metal, never fail to become an essential piece in any rock n roll collection. As if 32 years and 21 original releases weren’t enough, GBH put out another album that packs on of the greatest, hardest punches of their discography, and one that proves that they can simply do

      no wrong.

      After listening to the album from start to finish, I was downright blown away. Every second is astonishingly loud and heavy. Right from the beginning you are thrown into an intense firestorm of rapid drumming, thick bass, crunchy guitars, and one of the best punk vocal performances I’ve heard in years. From there, it doesn’t stop for one second. Track after track, it had my heart racing and my head moving relentlessly.

      The recording quality is probably the best I’ve ever heard in a punk record- absolutely clear with loud, full bass response and extremely crisp treble. Normally I would say that it takes away from the sound, but in this case it goes for it. The songs themselves need the loudness to do them justice. The vocals are perfectly recorded without any distortion. There are many instances of a slight echo, which might not have been an artificial effect. Whatever caused it, it added the finishing touch to an already phenomenal album.


      The album’s general sound ranges from hardcore to metal, and every last thing in between. There are many mid-paced crossover trash songs, a couple faster hardcore songs, and even a bluesy song. The sound combines elements from almost every type of rock-n-roll known to man. The resulting diversity makes it that much better and keeps it from being too boring. No matter what your tastes are, you will find at least one song on here you’ll like.

      If you don’t have

      this album and you think you have a punk collection, you need to get your hands on it now. It is one of the essentials that no collection is complete without. “Perfume and Piss” proves that GBH refuses to die out. 32 years after their formation, they put out one of the hardest, greatest punches of their entire existence. I can easily put it in the top 5 albums to come out this year. Absolutely phenomenal, landmark album that cannot be missed.
