In authentic punk fashion, Detroit-based S.N.A.F.U. (Situation Normal All Fucked Up) offers nineteen songs in forty minutes on their upcoming album Present Day Plague. And in testament to the blurred sub-genres that thrash/hardcore/hardcore-punk have become, their songs are punctuated with ripping guitar leads, upbeat riffing, and anthemic choruses that rail against The Man.
Have a listen to the single “Unchained”:
Some of my favorite yet-to-be released tracks were “Prison Warders” and “Snakes Eating Snakes.” There are a few Detroit punk Easter eggs within the album — “The Human Infestation” features Shawn Knight of Child Bite, and Suicide Machines vocalist Jason Navarro is a guest on “Eternal Nocturnal.”
