The sound of Broken Bones is the sound of punk at its most primal, the crashing roar of wild, wild youth taken to limits even the Sex Pistols never dreamed of. When the band formed in 1983, punk may not have been dead, but it was certainly dying. Then Broken Bones came along and the reverberations are still being felt today, in the battle cries of Bad Religion and the swagger of Rancid, in the white heat of Slayer and the debauchery of Ministry. Some people have called Broken Bones one of the biggest Hardcore bands of all time and one of the most vital, various U. S. mega-bands such as Metallica or Slayer have even acknowledged them as one of their influences.

"time for anger not justice"
Year:  2005
Country:  UK
City:  Stoke-On-Trent
Label:  Dr. Strange
Format:  CD ,LP
Tracks:  15
Time:  36 min.
Genre:   rock
Style:         Punk         Hardcore




















After the albums  "Losing Control" (1989)   and  "Stitched Up" (1991) which sounded perhaps too much heavy metal and quite slow, Broken Bones returned to its roots more hardcore punk or some kind of metalized fast punk aka "punk metal" as its firsts albums of 80's decade. "Time for anger not justice" remind a lot the newest Discharge albums but better in almost all senses: quality sound, composition, lyrics, etc. It's not strange at all this similarity to Discharge, so, the brothers Tony "Bones" Roberts (guitar) and Terry "Tezz" Roberts (bass) founded BROKEN BONES itself after they left Discharge due to certain controversy related to new Discharge musical orientation with the single "Ignorance" (1985) and besides the total commercial failure "Grave new world" (1986), both already without these two brothers, who joined Discharge again in 2001 next to original vocalist Cal.

Year:  1987
Country:  UK
City:  Stoke-On-Trent
Label:  Fallout
Format:  CD
Tracks:  12
Time:  36 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk Metal




















Only in 1987 BROKEN BONES recorded 2 albums, both aimed at what was then called as "crossover", aka metalized sound and production. The only factor is how I feel at this desfaborable "FOAD" is that all the songs sound noticeably slower than "Trader in death." The album turns out to be less energetic, dynamic and closer to slower and heavy structures reminiscent (in my opinion) too much thrash metal. Anyway it is still a good work.

"Trader in death"
Year:  1987
Country:  UK
City:  Stoke-On-Trent
Label:  RFB
Format:  CD
Tracks:  11
Time:  28 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk         Hardcore




















In my opinion this is definitely the best and most dazzling BROKEN BONES album no doubt. Its experiments mixing punk / hardcore with Metal sub-genres (thrash, heavy, speed, doom, etc.) gave very good results this time. Give their best in this album full of fast, short, direct and super-dynamic songs, but with a more modern sound (then, in 1987), more "crossover thrash". There was an attempt to market to BROKEN BONES? decided to take this course to collect musical best gains? to most bands at some point try to do something new and different it berates were made from the more conservative sectors. But I think that if the initial philosophy (the essence of punk) is lost, it is good to take steps forward, backward or in different directions looking for new formulas and re-inventing old. The element that I like about this album is that the sound is metallized but the music accelerates. Sounds more hardcore. Here we have attached the video below to hear what podais. Great album and totally recommended for all those who love hardcore music.
