"Under the Black Sails CD Review"

Under The Black Sails

Under The Black Sails
(self-released)
Under The Black Sails plays the kind of gruffly melodic hardcore that dominated all-ages clubs and the crustier corners of high-school parking lots in the mid-'90s. Like early No Use for a Name and Good Riddance, this Kansas City trio churns out fast, catchy tunes with a singer who is tuneful without crooning and is forceful without seeming too strident. The band stocks its debut EP with crowd-pleasing elements: The first song contains a group-shouted "fuck you," and three of the six tracks include some variation on the timeless "whoa-oh" sing-along hook. The production can be rough, but DIY acts, especially those as proudly alcohol-fueled as Under The Black Sails, wear muddy sound patches and the occasional botched transition as badges of honor. Given modern pop-punk's blinding polish, it's refreshing to hear a few scuffs.

Bio

UTBS started in 2005 by Marcus and Derek. For 2 years we played anywhere and everywhere which gave us the chance in 2007 we played and won the city-wide battle of the bands (punk wars) which allowed to record at the famous chapman studios in KC. since then we have toured and played round after round of shows attempting to get our name out in mass market. we are generally influenced by old school punk rock such as bad religion, the ramones, rise against, social distortion, bouncing souls, and assorted hair metal. we are totally different than all the bands in Kansas City, mainly because we are gimmick free, loud, fast, RULES! thats our policy.
