Alien Squad history
Our main influences then were in fact the same of the present day. The second British punk wave. Bands like: “G.B.H.”, “Discharge”, “The Exploited”, “One Way System”, “Oi Polloi”, “U.K. Subs”, “Conflict”, ”Antisect”, “Crass” (alright, some of these are from the first wave), “The Ruts”, “Chaos U.K.”, and many others (they’re too many to mention all, of course). Not only English bands; one very good example is the German punk outfit “D.B.F.”, an extraordinary musical collective not just for the music but also for their good lyrics. A huge influence, at least for me, and unfortunately known just for a few. And they deserved a lot more… But it doesn’t stop here. The “Crossover” bands like “D.R.I.”, “Agnostic Front”, “Gang Green”, “Adrenalin O.D.”, “Rostok Vampires”, along with the thrashers of the 80’s, such as “Destruction”, “Tankard”, “Slayer”, etc., were deep influences to us. Thrash riffs were always in our sound since the first steps. In fact, my favourite musician is a thrasher (just a curiosity). Jeff Waters, lead guitarist, composer and producer from the Canadian (greatest) band “Annihilator”.
About "Stand Your Ground"
Fourteen years passed since the release of “Order Not Government “, our third album. We finally managed to get this Alien sonic fourth incoming out, brewed upon old tracks and more recent songs, covering a timeline from 1988 to... let's say four or five years ago (with the exception of “Whereabouts Unknown”, aged 2).
Three songs on this album were brought to life by the original line-up, in our very first years as a band, during the “Alien Spider Webs “period.
