Album Review: Part Time Killer – “People. Religion. Death.”

I’m a child of the 90’s and as a result my punk rock roots are, like many others, in the So-Cal, skate punk era that saw the rise of what is now referred to as the Epi-Fat sound.  Skate punk in the modern day has fleeting moments of brilliance but it’s somewhat fading…fast.  This isn’t to say that there aren’t bands out there doing it and doing it well.  Finnish band, Part Time Killer is a perfect example of a band still doing the punk scene proud.  The band rose from the ashes of Flippin’ Beans and there have been a constant flow of releases since the band’s inception.  A 7 inch, a 3 way split and now a full-length is a release schedule that would put some of their bigger contemporaries to shame.

Their first full length People.  Religion.  Death. continues down the same road as the band’s previous efforts with more vigour and passion than I thought was ever possible.  It’s not that “Fuck The World” was lacking in ferocity, but the full-length definitely takes it to the next level.

Opener, “Heartbreaking Music” is not a Lagwagon cover like most would think but it does give an insight to a band that tours hard, produces music constantly but fails to reap the rewards from a scene that continues to take.  “Another amazing town, another amazing crowd, another amazing song but no one sings along.  And it’s breaking my heart.  This is heartbreaking music,” is a particular stand out lyric if only for the fact that I want to yell it back to them at a show to let them know this is amazing music.

Back to the music.  The album is fast-paced from the minute it starts to the second it ends.  The album is heavy on gang vocals, evident in “15 Minutes of Fame” and “Teenage Riot” which bust out the whoas in the most appropriate places.  The simple three chord guitar ethos of skate punk bands gone by is employed here but with a structured attack that many modern day bands are missing and “Weight of the World” is a prime example of this.

“Anti-Everything” could almost be a lyrical spit against Gen Y but mainly focuses on faith yet it has that melodic hook which will ensure a crowd singing along to every word.  “Your Life Story” was included on the “Fuck the World” 7 inch but the album version features Sammi from Finnish hardcore band, St. Hood whose gritty vocals add an unexpected element, anger.

Lyrically the album covers issues plaguing modern day society, as outlined in the album title, it meanders through topics of people, religion and death.  Not always glamorous topics but important nonetheless.  It’s extremely political in some views without being overly preachy, a shining testament to the song writing ability of the band.  “Freedom Fight?” is one that addresses war, an issue which many of us are now so conditioned to that we’re almost blind to it.

The strength in this album is that it never attempts to be something that it’s not.  There are no over-the-top, wanky breakdowns, there are no slow numbers; there is not a single song in the album that doesn’t fit with the overall picture of the band.  The album is solid, passionate, and furious without being overtly technical.  If most bands did simplicity as well as PTK then punk rock would be a better place.  Part Time Killer are doing skate punk in 2011 the way it should have always been done…well.



DS Exclusive: Track by Track of “People. Religion. Death” by Part Time Killer

Music is a beautiful thing and one of the beauties that lies within it is the ability for two people to interpret a songs meaning completely differently.  We derive our own meanings from any words we hear and use that interpretation to relate it back to ourselves and the world around us.  Here at Dying Scene, we always want to know more about it so this time we asked Alex Aaltola, bass player and singer for Part Time Killer to give us a run down on meaning behind the words on their new album, “People.  Religion.  Death.”  You can read the full track by track breakdown here.

The album was released on March 9th and you can grab a copy on the Pee Records website.

Album Review: Burning Fiction / Jet Market / PartTime Killer: Split

A split usually involves two bands showcasing a few songs so that fans of one band can be introduced to another. A three way split is pretty rare, at least to me, but I’m all for throwing in an extra band. The three bands on this split are Jet Market (Italy), Part Time Killer (Finland) and Burning Fiction (Australia.) They all contribute four songs each in exactly 35 minutes.

I’m not familiar with the band Burning Fiction but from the first track “Mindhead” they got me intrigued. The skatepunk evidence is all there. The fast beat, the melodic vocals, rhythmic bass and the driving power chords all sound as good as the pop of an ollie. The second track is slower but still good and I finally figured out who these guys sound like. It’s mostly the voice but I hear a resemblance to now expired aggressive metal/skatepunk band Layaway Plan. The next track is at the same pace as the last and again it is good but just not as good as the first. The final track from Burning Fiction is “The Grip” and it starts at the same pace as the last two but 30 seconds in picks up with some finger tapping solo’s and fires into the fast skatepunk sound I’m looking for. All around not bad but I would say they should of stuck to the same strategy as Layaway Plan and played them all fast.

The next band is one I am looking forward to hearing. I am a fan of Jet Market so I have high expectations for their four songs. “The Truck” immediately is recognizable as a Jet Market song and 15 seconds in to it I have goose bumps. Up next is “Tonight, Tonight” and it’s blazing fast and has a familiar sound to it. NO FUCKING WAY! It’s not until the palm muted picking and vocals that I figure out that the title is not just a coincidence to the Smashing Pumpkins song. Rad is all I can say. I love the original and now here is four Italians giving me a skate punk version of the hit song. They finish strong with the last two tracks making it three solid Jet Market tracks just as good as anything else they have done and one awesome cover song.

The last band is one that gave me slight puzzlement. For a few minutes I thought this was the Austrian punk band Renttokill who have a song called Primetime Killer but no, it’s Part Time Killer who I have never heard of until now. After I straighten it out the chorus of the first song is yelling at me to “Wake up.” Part Time Killer has a more straight up classic punk sound than the other two bands but they have infused it in to their own style of melodic skate punk. The four tracks are all fast and all have singable chant along vocals that make you want to rise up and fight against something like the government, rising beer prices, burnt toast or whatever you’re against.

As a whole Jet Market has the strongest tracks on the split but all the bands bring something to the table that is good in their own way. I ‘m glad that there are three different bands on this split, giving me three different styles of fast melodic punk rock to listen to. I might have never heard of Part Time Killer and Burning Fiction if it weren’t for Jet Market.
