GoFight - Napalm Baby
Industrial, Electro You have to give respect to bands such as GoFight who are willing to dive into as many controversial subjects as possible without giving two flying fucks about who may get offended and who may not. And they definitely were able to prove that with their first album, Music For Military Torture, released in 2012. Obviously, with songs titles such as Fuck Like A Movie Star and Pussygrinder, I can imagine that quite a few people here and there were easily turned off at the mere aesthetics this album brought about. You know what I say about those people? I say that they are no good communists without a sense of humor who judge a book by its cover. And, not many people enjoy such austere type of folk.

Anyway, following that release, and a few remix EPs, we come to the present day and age where the sun is starting to shine after a long winter, and GoFight's latest album is only a month away. Napalm Baby is twelve songs in length, runs fifty two minutes, and manages to amuse, put out stark views in the face of squabbles and strife, and also bring out uplifting and positive views in much the same aspect.

However, amongst all these different themes and motifs comes the awesome music that this band has managed to perfect in a short span of time. They describe themselves as "Electroscuzz", which is pretty much a self-made genre. But, after giving a listen to this clear cut production, I can only describe that as a mixture of industrial, funk, electro, and a little bit of everything else in between the smaller lines. Expect a lot of upbeat experimentation and naughty nonsense that somehow manages to work very, very well.

Stand out songs include the pretty straightforward and humor ridden Gay on the Dancefloor, which does, in fact, have that funk element that I was just mentioning earlier. It's exactly what you would expect it to be, so don't ask anymore questions, and just listen to the song. Rocket would be another club banger that you have got to dive into. I was really interested in this song mainly due to the band's recent posting on March 9th, which gives some details about where the inspiration from the song came from, which reads:

"So, yesterday was the 2015 international women?s day and I realize now what bothered me about it. It?s only one day long. So in honor of the rest of the year, here is a song from Go Fight's upcoming album, Napalm Baby, and a quick video showcasing 74 women who were knocked down but kept getting back up again until they succeeded. We want to dedicate this to all our unstoppable friends who decided a long time ago that ?you can?t do it? was a shitty answer, but a great challenge. We are your biggest fans."

So, not only does the song completely wipe the floor, but it also manages to give a very hearty and lovely sense. Kill What You Eat was another song on the album that completely floored me; more dance friendly, boot stomping music that had incredible drum work throughout. If you want to get your ass up and move, this is the song to go to.

But, yes, this album is definitely worth the ride from start to finish. I don't have a single complaint to really say about this album, and it absorbed my attention with each listen that I gave it. GoFight has brought the fire to the dancefloor, and it's your time to stand up to the heat, baby.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
