REVIEW: Skarhead – Dreams don’t Die

Skarhead – Dreams don’t Die

CD 2011 I Scream Records

Dreams don’t Die is Skarhead’s tribute to Lord Ezec’s favourite bands from the unforgettable era between 1986 and 1989 with guest appearances by Eddie Sutton (Leeway), Paul Bearer (Sheer Terror), Mad Joe (Wisdom In Chains), Scott (Terror) and many more.

What you get is quite a dull ode to the NY scene because the choice of bands and tracks is very cliché: Sick Of It All, Cro-Mags, Bad Brains, Youth Of Today (Break down the walls), Warzone (As One). Nevertheless there are also some nice songs covered, for example the Prince song ‘When you Were Mine’ in the Cyndi Lauper Version featuring Paul Bearer.

A nice album for the fans of Skarhead and NYHC in general but not a big gain to your Hardcore music collection.
