DCxPC Live Vol. 5 The Goons Live at The Black Cat 2001: Review
The Goons are amazing in both performance and production and “Live at the Black Cat 2001” is a good example of that. They have been in the music world for quite a few decades now, and they follow hardcore punk rock.
The first track of this live album, “White Tide,” starts with crowds talking and then a guitar riff with bass, drums, and everything else, which is highly energetic, and then enters the punk-style vocalist, who shouts melodically in a subtle manner through the whole song.
“RTD,” the second song of the live album, begins with a distorted guitar riff that sounds a lot like Green Day and Iron Maiden mixed together, then enters the bass, drums, and vocal. The bass is very straightforward but groovy, the drums are punkish all the way, and the vocals sing in a shouting manner that is very energetic.
“Human Wheel” is a thrash metal type track with a speedy riff and drumming, and the vocal growls and shouts, giving their all to the audience.
“Ozone Alert” is the last song of this album, and it starts with an announcement, which is followed by a high-gain, high-energy riff that immediately starts to rock the audience. It is also a speedy track that sparks excitement in the audience.
Even though it was recorded live at a concert and the sound quality is a bit unclean, the performance was superb and full of energy.
