Low Value - The language of stolen music

Low Value - The language of stolen music, 2005 Slovenia self released, October 2005 Melodic PunkRock (12 tracks, 35 min, CD~EAC~Lame~Mp3@V0, 72MB) So here you have four years old album from Maribors Low Value. The band started playing in 2000 and is active till today (with some member changes). The 2005 The language of stolen music is probably the peak of their music path till now. First it was released by the band till 2006 when boys signed for Japanese label: CR Japan Inyaface. But their discography will expand early next year (2010) with their second album called RECHARGE, released by High Speed Flower records also based in Japan. So be expecting more melodic punk rock tunes from this band very soon! And in the mean time, taste their debut album. It features 11 melodic punkrock songs, varying from fast energetic parts as heard from 90s melodic bands to some almost ballade parts, plus a bonus song that is actually not a song and could be easily left out. All in all this album is a nice contribution to Slovenian punk scene, but I am sure we can expect much more from the announced second album, as the band was maybe searching for their place and sound with this one, and sometimes I feel they went too far looking for melodies that made Fat Wreck Chords so popular in 90s. But who am I to say? This is sympathic music release with cool CD design. Be sure to check bands detailed BIO on Low Value MySpace, where you can still get this album for a fair price! Or just order it from Interpunk. Downlaod
