Formed from the ashes of Alpinist – one of the best bands of German hardcore – comes the heirs to the throne, Jungbluth. Named after the communist/antifascist World War II resistance fighter Karl Jungbluth, they comprise of three former members of their now defunct ancestors; ‘Part Ache‘ is their debut full length, politically branded and shouted mostly in their native tongue with sprinklings of English, the nine songs here pass by with the sort of bluster and heart-on-sleeve you’d expect from a band of such pedigree. Indeed it’s furious, fast and excellent, spanning nine tracks in total which isn’t as short as you’d think, and throughout its worthy and righteous. Tracks such as ‘Wakefield’ and ‘No One But Myself’ truly batter at the door, while ‘These Rare Moments’ displays a reflective moment halfway through before cantering ahead. An excellent record all round, combining melodic and chaotic hardcore sensibilities to create an unquestionably vital addition to your record collection.
