Recenze Backstreet Battalion:
Epic Problem je kapela, která byla založena v roce 2010 ve Velké Británii a toto je jejich třetí počin. Na desce najdete čtyři songy s jednoslovnými songy Lines, Deny, Sink a Weak. Kapela hraje ve čtyřech lidech, ale mají dvě kytary (jednou z nich je Mackie z Blitz). Popravdě musím přiznat, že jsem znal pouze název, ale byl jsem moc zvědavej, co se z toho vyklube. První song Lines je super melodická věc, která zvukem spíše než anglické kapely připomíná kapely z poza velký louže. Dvojka Deny to je to samý…střední tempo, jemně zastřenej a jakoby posmutnělej hlas zpěváka. Trojka Sink je zatím rytmicky nejrychlejší věc z desky a je tam poměrně zajímavá mezihra s bicími bez činel a basovým sólem. Poslední věc Weak je nejtrvrdší a taky nejpřímočařejší (žádná vyhrávka nebo tak něco, jen poctivě dopředu hrnutej punk rock). Já v tom slyším kapely jako třeba Burning Streets a vůbec Bostonskou školu, Flatfoot 56, nebo třeba legendu jako Social Distortion. Díky v úvozovkách zastřenýmu a smutnýmu hlasu zpěváka mi to trošku připomíná švédy Dims Rebellion (ale bez kláves) a Saturday´s Heroes. Super věc je, že si oba kytaristi a basák vzájemně vypomáhají ve zpěvu, takže sbory, společné refrény, nebo střídání vokálů je naprosto běžnou věcí. Deska vyšla ve 4 barevných provedeních (600 kousků - modrá, černá, bílá a modrá s černými fleky). Uvnitř je papír s psace psanými texty a nějaká ta fotka. Příjemný překvapení pro fanoušky melodické a ne příliš tvrdé muziky.

Review Backstreet Battalion:
Epic Problem is band which was founded in 2010 in Great Britain and this is their third record. On EP you should listen to four songs called Lines, Deny, Sink and Weak. The band plays in four but they have two guitars (one guitar is Mackie from Blitz). I have to admit that I know just the name but I was quite curious how it will sound. First song Lines has great melody and the sound is more US then English. Second song Deny is quite the same – middle rhythm and little bit covert and sad vocal of the singer. Third piece Sink has the fastes rhythm and there is quite interesting part with drums without cymbals and bass solo. The last one Weak is most straightforward from the EP (no solo just sincere fast punk rock). In their music I heard influences from bands like Burning Streets and the Boston music school, Flatfoot 56 or legendary Social Distortion. The covert vocal of the singer reminds me Swedish bands like Dims Rebellion (without keyboards) and Saturday´s Heroes. Great thing is that both guitarists are changing in vocals so sing-alongs are quite usual. EP was released in four colours (600 pieces together – blue, black, white and blue with black splatters). Inside is paper with lyrics written in hand and some photos. Nice surprise and must have for all fans of melodic and not so hard and heavy music.

Review American-Oi:
Altough formed early 2011 I still consider Epic Problem rather new, altough you might recognize ‘Mackie’ from legendary UK band the Blitz. With other words, Epic Problem might be a young band, the members themself have earned their stripes in the punk scene a long time ago and that is something you hear back in their sound.
 
Because the four tracks on their new EP “Lines” are from top notch quality in both music and lyrics. When I started to listen tot his 7” Epic Problem somehow reminded me of a band, but I couldn’t quite place it until I heard the last track, which is a cover of one of the classic songs The Beltones have written called “Weak”. Just like them Epic Problem doesn’t have your typical “skinhead” or “streetpunk” sound but when you listen to “Lines” you’ll find out that you will easily love this band and their sound, even though you are a skin or streetpunk.
 
Because if The Beltones have never existed bands like Leatherface, Welt or Off With Their Heads would have come to mind when I have to compare Epic Problem to other bands. But with that being said you’ll still mention Mackie’s Oi! and streetpunk roots in songs such as “Lines”, “Deny” and “Sink” which can make this EP easily be loved by a broad audience of people who are into top quality punkrock music.
 
“Lines” is released by Longshot Music, Rebellion Records and Rebel Sound and comes into 4 different colors of limited vinyl. It might not be your usual cup of tea, but if you are just slightly into any of the bands I have mentioned in this review you’ll be into Epic Problem as well, that I know for sure!
