"The Anthology" (Patac Records; 2011)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Executioner's "The Anthology" features all of the legendary punk band's recordings for the year 1982, restored and re-mastered! The music is raw and in-your-face ... which means it's just the way punk should be.
Full of power and full of life, "The Anthology" is a vivid snapshot of what punk was like in the early 80s, and Executioner delivers a killer punk performance throughout. Twenty-nine songs delivered at a blistering pace bring you 48 minutes of punk in its purest form. The longest song here runs 3:11.
This is what punk music is supposed to be: raw, grimy, fast and gritty ... and it has re-energized my appreciation of punk music. "The Anthology" is a constant wall of sound that comes at you like bullets from a machine gun.
Executioner's "The Anthology" should be experienced by every pure punk enthusiast. Simply put, an outstanding punk release.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
