A combination of street punk and hardcore punk brings out this raw aggressive tone these guys tend to produce. Speaking of which, the band has released nine LP’s during their establishment, along with a handful of EP’s, compilation album as well as live material to keep the adrenaline rush flowing ever so smoothly. The adrenaline rush that The Casualties pushes out has invaded our hometown streets and cities from all over, thus the birth of their third live album has made its mark.
Entitled “Made in NYC,” this double disc combo includes both an audio version and DVD version of the band’s NYC Knitting Factory performance. Twenty-two tracks immediately make their way and attach themselves to your body, twisting and thrusting you in every possible direction. Starting off with “Casualties Army,” you have joined the rankings of the army you will never forget about. “Ugly Bastard,” “Get Off My Back,” and “Down and Out,” are some of the main highlights that are include amongst the amazing track listing given here. Each of tracks not only dish out the old school feel but pulls out all the absolute fun as well. The instruments present themselves fast and heavy as possible not missing a beat. Vocal chords take complete control screaming and shouting all over the place the music just takes you over. The music instantly pulls you inward and doesn’t let go at all keeping the non-stop vibrations constantly flowing.
The DVD portion includes the band’s live performance capturing all The Casualties goodness along with other bonus material i.e. photo gallery, music videos, etc Your basic package deal when it comes to your usual CD/DVD combo. All in all The Casualties have remained to be the band they started out as and will forever remain that way until the end of time.
