Sound — 8
Never Give In is Resilience's debut release on SOS Records. The band contains a unique mix of Street Punk and Oi! influence. The guitar has an incredible crunch and the bass tone is unmistakeable. Resilience carries a sound that will please punk purists, the only drawback being that their songs have the ability of sounding the same after a while.
Lyrics — 8
Lyrically, this album is simple, and easy to remember. Fury's signature growl/yell accents the anger behind their lyrics, which cover topics from their hatred of the capitalist system to the times shared and lost with friends and family. They are a major force in the punks and skins movement and truly define working class pride.
Overall Impression — 9
As far as the better songs on the album, I would reccomend Unity, Pist/poor anthem, and Beat for the Beaten. The album stays true to the punk roots and really dishes out some of the best punk Sonoma County has to offer. This album is a must have for any punk fan.
