With a new year comes The Bronx’s new album. And with it, a new reason to say “fuck the world” and mean it. Things open pretty normally for a Matt Caughthran-led attack; “Are you the Antichrist or the Holy Ghost? / Do you want to die or just come real close?” spits the frontman in ‘The Unholy Hand’ with a swagger to match Die Hard’s John McClane. ‘Along For The Ride’ would sound akin to Foo Fighters if it wasn’t for Caughthran’s drooling snarl, but ‘Torches’ is where it gets really weird. With power chord hooks and a newfound innocence, this is a side of The Bronx you’ve yet to hear.
Ahh, Sonisphere 2014. You were a beautiful weekend. These were your best bits, featuring Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Babymetal, Slayer, The Bronx and many more. All photos shot by Ben Gibson and Giles Smith for Rock Sound.
