It’s been over 30 years since the creation of a Rock band that has dove deep into the never-ending abyss of transformation over a variety of reincarnations that have led toward the recent release of their 19-track album, ‘Dirt Church’. Adding a dose of their individuality and previously performing as members of DOA, Poison Idea, NoMeansNo, and Mentors, Groupoem has reformed and have been reborn into a mixture of Modern Rock and Old-School Jukebox Classics that breathe new life into our modern-era. Kicking off the 19-track piece with “Slimfast”, Groupoem soothes listeners ears with a welcoming instrumental that showcases the range and depth that the band intends to go laced with unflinching punk lyricism that catches the minds of fans of bands such as The McRackins, Treble Charger and The Manges.
Cleverly entitled, the second track, “Affluenza”, demands attention with a cunning lyrical manner that portrays how human beings fall on their knees for political leaders visions and distract themselves from their own lives. The fourth track, “Flat Earth”, blazes through mental anguish and confusion over a thought-provoking demonstration of how every human being plays trick within their own mind along this road of life that is constantly twisting and turning through the unknown. “Frozen” is the seventh track that instrumentally stuns and abruptly jumps into a bold and shameless dose of despair within a madman in question of the society that he lives in.
Over the twelfth track, “Dirt Church”, Groupoem picks up the pace over a temper tantrum that will draw in fans who swoon over the new wave of Punk. “The Barge Comes” chronicles how an individual in life waits for permission to act upon their desires rather than acting on them from a state of courage within. Outraged with zero remorse, Groupoem dishes out their ferocious and streamlined chemistry over “Gagline” which is a short track that gets right to the point as a vehicle heading toward abandon of the norm.
