Those who regularly come back to this page know I have a soft spot for Italian outfit The Unborn. The masked boys from Viterbo combine two styles I absolutely love, namely horror punk and Oi!, and deliver this mix with sheer power! Something you can, as always, hear back on the band’s latest EP “The Last Man On Earth” for Ratgirl Records!
Released on cassette, the tape includes a total of four tracks – though nearly all of them have been previously released before. “L’Ultimo Uomo Della Terra” is taken off last year’s debut album “Slasher – Street Punk Anthems”, while “Braineaters” and “Videodrome” were taken off the compilations “We Are The Friend Club – A Misfits Tribute Chapter II” and “Caos In Italia”. Only the demo-version of instrumental outro “Slasher” was previously unreleased, but that’s it.
Nonetheless this is a cool tape to get though. The band’s originals are still great, the Italian version of Misfits classic “Braineaters” rips and the fact that this is a nice, little collectable of just 50 copies made, make “The Last Man On Earth” a welcoming addition to the collection after all. So completists, collectors and other nutjobs, make sure you secure a copy – because after mine there are just 49 left!
