This album, on one hand, wants to be a call to arms whilst also exploring the flaws of the lead singer. Unfortunately, in many instances, this politicized album just falls flat from really vying for attention and rousing action. The synthetic direction of the instrumentation leads to a mechanical, and less fruitful listen than previous tUnE-yArDs albums and does not combine well with the awkwardly executed message.
Ending with the ballad-esque Into the Dark, The Age of Absurdity is a fantastic debut album from Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons. It carries the torch that Motörhead lit, with Phil Campbell burning as bright as always.
Whilst What You Know Now strays from the beaten, genre based path at multiple occasions, Marmozets are a band that are focused & on task; they want to be one of the biggest & brightest bands in the United Kingdom, and with their sophomore album, they’re a huge step towards that goal.
No beating around the bush here, Crywank’s latest album Egg on face. Foot in mouth. Wriggling Wriggling Wriggling. is fucking amazing; sure it has some weaker tracks, though only when compared to the colossi on this LP, but it has some really different sounding tracks with more punk and hardcore influences, resulting in every risk taken pays off quite well and shows off the confidence of a band willing to take big strides.
