Hateful Monday nurtures straightforward approach to the punk rock sound, they are delivering a lot of wonderful melodies right off the bat without any fuss and unnecessary technicalities which are quite popular nowadays. This is a pure skatepunk music for those who are into this genre since it’s beginnings back in the first half of the 90s. Vocals are amazing, somewhere in between melodic singing and yelling, but well-controlled and balanced, it’s more than hearable that the years of practicing and playing have gained some useful singing skills. The rest of the band is surprisingly amazing as well, actually all band members the are the top-notch musicians, so it’s no wonder how Hateful Monday managed to stay together for over two decades. The band also carries small doses of melodic hardcore sound in their compositions, so this material could be such a nice treat to those who love a bit aggressive approach to skate punk music.
