Reviews Radio War The Rising of the Talentless

Radio War

The Rising of the Talentless

Richmond has always had an impressive hardcore scene, so it’s no surprise to hear good things from the city in Radio War. The Rising of the Talentless is the band’s first label release and the second for upstart Copper Lung Records.

This 7” comes packed with four tracks of gritty and groove-heavy hardcore punk. “The Boy Gangs of Richmond” is a nice building number that demonstrates that a hardcore band can show some restraint and still capture the intensity of aggressive music. Radio War chugs through this EP with a concoction of metallic hardcore, also showing hints of influence from d-beat mainstays Tragedy. Lyrically, the songs mostly focus on discussing sociological issues. Overall, a solid band that I’m looking forward to hearing more from.

P.S. I can’t believe they named a song “Gizmo Duck.” I love Duck Tales.
