Album Review: Ink Bomb – “Fiction”

Intelligent song-writing is present on this record of truth. Dutch act, Ink Bomb, take the punk formula and raise hairs and hell. Within a few minutes, when the album Fiction blasts the cobwebs, friction breaks loose, and those turbulent lyrics draw in attention and interest rapidly. The lyrics describe doom and fear. The world is in disarray, and Fiction is a compendium of punk scores tuned in like a TV aerial into the core of drama.

The guitar strokes are always fundamental and Fiction is an exploration of diverse chords. Instrumentation is pivotal to a band which utilise every aching moment. Delivering these pounding songs is their calling. By conveying through the brazen lyrics, they imprint their stories quickly, chronicling the times when hope escaped them, when hurt burrowed profoundly.

The members of Ink Bomb want to breach above the top layer. They don’t want to hit the mainstream, but they crave to reach the top floor. This is not a port of call, but their hearts beat for justification. Writing these words takes time, but they can be misjudged or placed aside. Ink Bomb’s ability at creating lyrics that are poignant is a talent in itself. From the start, the poetry may consume, but it’ll leave a lasting impression.

Fiction sparks with Brittle. A song which is fast-paced and charged. The chugged out guitar parts offer abrasiveness and loud moments. Scourge explains to us the decline of the world and warped reality. The digital age is reaching supremacy. Midnight In The Desert is an intelligent assessment of mental instability. Happiness is distant. Dreams are cut up strips of fear. Behind the guitars is a bubbling bassline and quick fired drumbeats. Cauterize is an emotional affair. Its stripped back, it’s raw and cathartic. Enemies are spotlighted, pinpointed and ready for a fiery wrath.
Ink Bomb are supremely talented. They’re a band expressing themselves fully. With their collection Fiction, they look for an act of kindness and a more stable world.

Ink Bomb release new single, “Scourge”, off their upcoming debut album

Dutch skate punks Ink Bomb have just released the second single off their upcoming album, Fiction, which is due August 23. The song is called “Scourge,” even though it wasn’t always.

“Before the song was named Scourge, ‘Poppy song’ was the working title during song writing. We called it that way, because the song is more pop punk than many of our other songs,” says drummer Paul van de Geijn. “We wrote multiple new songs at the same time. This way, we immediately knew what new song we were talking about in the rehearsal room.”

Do you like this poppy direction from Ink Bomb? Listen to “Scourge” below.
