While the jury was out following the ‘Death Is Birth’ EP, a positive verdict has been returned for the now Wade MacNeil fronted hardcore punk outfit Gallows. On their self-titled 3rd LP, the quintet deliver another relentless barrage of ferocious energy; with snarling & angry vocals atop gritty & hard-hitting musicianship. Littered with gang vocals, the surprises here are the anthemic nature of the melodic hooks & the removal of any filler. It may be a less distinctive Gallows but it is one more universal in scope, on what is their most consistent release to date. Recommended Tracks: Depravers, Cross of Lorraine, Victim Culture & Odessa.
