Badge - If It Hurts It Must Be Good

If It Hurts It Must Be Good
by JOGANEGAR at 09 October 2017, 3:35 AM

To be alive in the world today, posts an unprecedented opportunity to become one with everything you enjoy around you in planet earth, even if that means that which you choose to surround yourself with can be kilometers away or long time gone into the sands of time. Defined as a Hardcore Blues, BADGE is a band from Sweden focused on paying homage to the greatest sounds that built Blues and Rock and Roll and made them what they are today, but the element of controlled chaos that remains present throughout this record makes it quite an interesting journey for music lovers alike, all over the world. The first track “Reap What You Sow” seems like something out of a futuristic cyber protopunk soundtrack depicting some sort of post-apocalyptic scenario where up is down and down is up, and all those things that grant our survival and that we usually take for granted are only the result of relentless, fearless fighting against different forces of mass destruction and death itself.

 “Trapdoor” allows for a short return into reality of more well-known structures of music, as the timing and the instruments used to emphasize the Blues concept allow for a short grip of reality under the sun of an 8-bar blues that transcends into the rest of this record made as an outstanding example of what it means to be alive in the civilized world today. The living example of mind blowing and experimental at its very best, a sound design like nothing I’ve ever had the chance to experience before, and ordered chaos that can only be described as interdimensional rock, with a galaxy of asteroids colliding against each other illuminating the stage of this band in the place of regular electricity, something suitable for the type of life of modern people in the present and the future.
