30+ years later and Savage Republic is still pushing ahead with their latest album Aegean. There are a total of 19 tracks ranging from 30 seconds to 8 minutes in running time. “Victory” opens up the album with a call back to the early SR sound complete with military styled drumming. The majority of tracks are instrumental on this release but tracks like “27 Days”, complete with aggressive vocals, show that SR still have their punk roots firmly set and there’s no letting up in aggression and attitude. The interlude tracks like “2ships II” weave and in and out throughout this album leaving the listener to take a breather and chill out. .
Stand out tracks for me on this release would have to be “Pio Pico”, “27 Days”, “Pelopenssia”, "Sons and Lovers" and “El Porto”. “El Porto” evokes some the surf style sound that SR has provided in the past. “Salonika”, “The Arab Spring”, “Thesaly I” and “Thesaly II” sound like outtakes from their 2013 Varvakios release. Tuxedomoon’s Blaine L. Reininger providing strings on “Salonika” and “The Arab Spring” add a nice touch to mood of Aegean
The digipak is beautifully packaged that folds out with a nice painting by George Nikas that will stand out in your collection. It would be nice to see this get released in vinyl format but kudos has to be given to Savage Republic for making this release happen so quickly.
