‘The Bruiseheads’ are a young Oi/streetpunk band from Holland that play simple, straightforward up-tempo Oi/Streetpunk. You can hear that they know their classic because they sound like a classic British Oi band on speed and although the vocalist sound like he’s already doing it for a few decades he’s just a young lad. In comparison with the demo tracks, you can hear on the first part of the record that the band has evolved in a positive way, it just sounds …better.
