Kremlin - 2013 - Drunk In The Gulag

Kremlin is a three piece hardcore punk band from Toronto, Ontario Canada. Drunk In The Gulag is their second release and their debut LP. They play a straight ahead, old school style of hardcore punk that would not be afraid of taking things to the street. This album is definitely back loaded, No Hope For You is an early stand out but the real meat comes towards the end. At their best on songs like the aforementioned No Hope For You, Steel Case, Why Should I Kremlin cranks out catchy hardcore songs with a lofi sheen. Kremlin bring the old school hardcore punk and aren't afraid to wear their influences on their sleeves.
