As the title implies, this piece truly packs a punch with its bold, rhythmic and harmonic punctuations. These features are framed by a distinctive melody, with well placed "blue" notes, giving it a sense of intrigue. This is signature Sean O'Loughlin at his best. The main material is contrasted by a beautiful slow section, which then returns to the intense central theme. A contest piece that will certainly make any band sound its best.
