The lack of Frank is saddening. I like it though.
Digging: Whirr/Nothing - Split
Pretty catchy song, looking forward to the EP.
Not as fast as True Colours, but I like it! EP will own.
That wasn't too bad, but its not nearly as good as the Frank era. Also its waaaay too fucking repetitive.
honestly they should just change their name.....
i'm definitely not displeased with that.
not digging this as much as True Colours. It sounds too average.
boring...needs more Frank Carter. this band is so disappointing to me now.
As if they were really all that great in the first place.
sounds like a B side from Grey Britain but without frank its just so... average.
Digging: Giant - Song
It's growing on me but if you listen to the previews on itunes, they remade (poorly) true colours and the last two tracks don't sound that interesting.
I guess you can't base that off 30 seconds though
Digging: Azealia Banks - Broke With Expensive Taste
its not bad. probably should of changed their name for their new stuff to be judged on its own merit
Feels like a scene out of Training Day. Also, those lyrics? Gross.
Pretty disappointing tbh
don't see why they should change their name
sounds like a poor mans etid.
Made me lol.
The other song had more about it, the lyrics in this are pretty lame, I stopped saying fuck the world when I was 16.
Sound is good though, still dont get the call for name change etc, they've already got a fan base this way, they want to hook people into this new stuff, changing their name will do nothing for them and I understand that.
I like this. People need to stop being so butthurt about Frank. They don't need to quit, they don't need to change their name, and they were never really a band with this legacy people are making them out to be in the first place.
^Butthurt Gallows fan
having witnessed Gallows with Frank I can honestly say that they put on a legendary live show, one like no other, Frank was gallows. now they went from being a pioneer band to sound like a subpar ETID/Your Demise band.
down, down, down, down... it gets me so....
WAIT A MINUTE
"now they went from being a pioneer band to sound like a subpar ETID/Your Demise band."
Since when in the fuck was Gallows a "pioneer band?"
pretty meh :/
"The other song had more about it, the lyrics in this are pretty lame, I stopped saying fuck the world when I was 16."
They're not saying fuck the world,
The lyrics are;
ya say fuck the world
i say it's allready fucked
Digging: Bird Eater - Dead Mothers Make the Sun Set
"Since when in the fuck was Gallows a "pioneer band?"
Since Frank Carter and the rest of Gallows wrote the musical masterpiece that is Grey Britain.
Really sounds like a bad etid copycat.
Totally fucking sucks.
The best 'Frank Carter Gallows' for me was the 5 track demo they had before Orchestra Of Wolves came out.
Both albums were pretty average in the end.
apparently the EP is 7 1/2 minutes long
this sounds to much like alexisonfire lol (which I like, but nevertheless) gallows had that british style to it I liked so much haha that's gone... but still, not that bad
lyrics are shit tho
"Since Frank Carter and the rest of Gallows wrote the musical masterpiece that is Grey Britain"
Who in the fuck, besides Rolling Stone, Spin, and A.P., said that was a "musical masterpiece." Odd considering Orchestra of Wolves was 200 times better, and that's not saying all that much.
User is dumb.
quite a lot of people actually
Funny you should say that, considering those are the first two people to say anything like that in my presence. You can't call a band "pioneering" when the sound was already done 30+ years ago.
I didn't say they were pioneering
"I think he means to say if he was good with words that they were a breath of fresh air taking it back to how punk used to
I can understand that, but a "breath of fresh air" doesn't mean it's "pioneering" in any way.
Yeah, Kerrang! is such a reliable source for music.
cos kerrang is the only review score on there
before frank carter left, these guys were apparently already in the middle of writing their 3rd album.
I wonder what happened to the stuff they wrote in that time period because the impression I get is
that all the stuff on the EP was written afterwards with Wade
Gallows became irrelevant ever since they released Grey Britain, which they will never be able to top. I know that sounds close minded, but it's easily a 5 in my eyes.
Digging: Ne Obliviscaris - Citadel
i want to hear the unreleased stuff with frank as vocalist
Yeah that wasn't too great
Gallows was quintessential British hardcore. It doesn't make sense to have a Canadian vocalist. How is he meant to sing their last two albums?
imagine wade singing "london is the reason" or "Watford town has gone and fucking let us down"
I think they wanted a new direction rather than chase a legacy they knew they couldn't beat
i guess it's the best thing they could've done.
Atleast it's better than recreating their old sound
