Following on from a number of EP's and splits, and a lot of live gigging, this is the first full length from these Czech Crust Punks and the brains behind Phobia Records.

'...And They Still Suffer' is a solid D Beat/Crust release, and gives you exactly what you'd expect, even before putting on the record, the sleeve tells you everything you need to know, followed rapidly by the pounding D Beats, chuggy riffs, and loud impassioned vocals when the needle hits the record. The opening track has a strong intro, and there's unquestionably some Swedish D-Beat influence in their along the lines of Skitsystem and Wolfbrigade that permeates throughout, the track 'Arise' showcases some unrepentant Discharge worship, and there's some memorable hooks on the track 'War Graves'. Unfortunately though this release kind of lacks some of the distinctiveness that would set them apart from a lot of other bands in this genre, and that were more prevalent in their earlier releases.

If you're into your Swedish D-Beat this will probably be right up your street.
