Somewhere between Oi Punk, Powercore, Thrash Metal, and Hardcore is where Awkward Thought stands its ground. Their 2003 opus, “Ruin A Good Time” [Thorp Records], is one solid, kick-in-the-face piece of musical aggression. Awkward Thought is anything but awkward…more like powerful and frenzied.
Fierce, blistering rhythms form the skeleton of the sound. Dense guitars, paired with a raw vocal yell, finishes this pummeling display of artistic hostility. Awkward Thought makes all work well.
Songs of worthy note includes the rabid “Reliable Source,” “Lights Out,” “Please Be Gone,” “Take Your Music And Shove It,” the relentless “The Way It Is,” and “Tell Me.” This is raw, heavy, and blistering Punk.
In summary, Awkward Thought opens-it-up and lets it rip “Ruin A Good Time.” What more could anyone ask for? Stay savage. Farewell.

Keep the faith, and the AGGRESSION. War.
