Loud. Fast. Riffy. Primitive Weapons are a full-on assault.
When life gets bleak, you can either run from the world’s ills or face them head on. And for their debut full-length, this Brooklyn five-piece has chosen the latter strategy – from the war cries of ‘Quitters Anthem’ to the sludgy despair of ‘Black Funds’, ‘The Shadow Galley’ is a seriously gloomy record. But it’s no funeral dirge - it’s a full-on, dynamic assault. Fusing hardcore with metal and occasionally veering off on deranged, druggy tangents, this is an ambitious blend of sounds. While the world may seem dark, Primitive Weapons have a bright and promising future ahead of them.
There's been some actual news this week. The Movielifereformed, Fightstarreturned from hiatus, and then there was Emoji Artworks. But sadly, today is our last #notthenews round-up of 2014. Try to hold back those tears while we recap all of this week's nonsense.
