For those unfamiliar with Dropping Bombs they were one of the great bands with a turn of the century hardcore sound that were as tight a live band that filled with lots of chug in these twisting and turning and stoppy starty complex tunes played at rapid pace. Dropping Bombs transcended between the different cliches of punk with in Ireland treading a line between melodic punk and crust, with hard hitting yet poetic political lyrics and gruff yet melodic vocals, they channel bands like Econochrist or Avail. Imagine if Propaghandi or Strike Anywhere had come from Dublin.
