Sigt Efter Hjertet

First they released a demo, then came their first 7", and after that came their demo as a 7" - all of them very well received by me and I dare to say a large number of punks worldwide. In late 2007 they visited the studio again and returned with the twelve tracks that became this LP. Charged with emotional melodies and punk attitude they've once again created songs that are impossible to listen to without getting completely sucked in to. I've in earlier reviews said that their lyrics are poetic, but that is also true about their music and the structures of their songs. It's very poppy at times
and all this rambling about emotions and poetry might scare away some real hardcore d-beaters, but to avoid any misunderstanding I want to make it perfectly clear that this is without a doubt punk. Punk in a pure and danceable form. Punk to which you can shake your ass while clenching your fist - not in anger but with dedication.
The Assassinators makes me believe we can actually change the world to the better, even though they do address some dark topics in their lyrics as well. Still, this band gets me motivated to do what I think is best for myself and others and are doing so while providing one hell of a soundtrack. But The Assassinators didn't just spend time writing music, this LP also comes with a thick booklet full of artwork and all their lyrics in Danish and English, along with in depth commentaries. This band has definitely not forgotten that it's very possible to combine punk, fun, and politics and get a very successful result. "Let this be a declaration of love or a kick in
the ass" - LP comes with an 32 page LP-sized booklet!!!
