Billy Club Sandwich is one of bands that can’t fall off both lyrically and musically if they tried. After listening to this album for the last few days, I have to say this one of the most interesting and intense things I’ve heard recently.
Tracks switch from the typical angry and in your face NYHC to ruthless mosh parts to straight up metal. It’s amazing how smoothly everything flows and it’s good to see the band still got the sense of humor and don’t take this shit too serious, especially when it comes to artwork. There are many bands doing this type of shit nowadays but even with good skills and ideas, many times they end up sounding not all that different from each other. That’s not the case with BCS. When you listen to any of the song off The Usual Suspects, you know who you’re listening to. Like on their previous albums, this one got some lyrics written in Spanish and I couldn’t not mention the cover of Ready To Halt by Sheer Terror. The Usual Suspects is a record that displays that BCS don’t give a fuck about anything or anyone and just focus on perfecting their own craft of bringing the hardest and meanest songs they can bring.
