Forgotten Roots – Crosses and Circles

Reviewed by Chris Render

The debut “mini-album” from Northern quartet Forgotten Roots perfectly exemplifies the current Western neo-punk music scene. Although not exactly my thing, Crosses and Circles is by no means a bad album, with catchy tunes performed with great skill by the Blyth based rockers. Tracks like Bats and 403-405 show that Forgotten Roots have great musical potential, and I wouldn’t be surprised to hear more from them in future.

Crosses and Circles is a prime example of the angsty, teen-orientated punk popularised these days by bands like Alkaline Trio and Green Day, and as such is not to everyone’s tastes, but I think that Forgotten Roots show great potential, and if more new punk sounds appealing, I’d definitely recommend Crosses and Circles. One for the Krash crowd, but they’ll love it.
