Punk rock like many other styles has changed over the years. It's seen off shoots as well some watering down and sub-genre that are not always that faithful to what punk rock was in the 1970's and 1980's. Based on that it's always refreshing to hear a band today who embraces the pure, stripped down fury of old style, hard hitting punk rock. They smash their way through thirteen tracks of unbridled, noisy fury. Plus in the spirit of this style only one song is over three minutes. They realize it's about chaos and spirit instead of quantity. For influences think the Exploited, GBH, DOA and other early hardcore acts the way they sounded around 1981-1984. The Revilers attack quickly and get the job done effectively. After suffering through some album by bands that call themselves punk rock in recent years, it's great to be overwhelmed by something as simple yet magnificent as the Reviler's debut.

I agree that punk rock was very influential. Mainly, it influenced a lot of kids to get really bad haircuts.
