South Wales five-peace hard rock outfit Peacemaker, DIE will be release their EP Chapter One today April 14th.
Peacemaker, DIE! is a result of members of Funeral For A Friend, Dead Against The Rest, Forever Vendetta and New Device going into a room, turning the amps to 10 and getting creative.
We had a listen to the EP:
The album starts with ‘Time’ — this is aggressive and dirty-loud with killer guitars and murderously shifty rhythms.
The unkempt and moody vocal is passionate and obsessive.
With tuneful moments and a huge and enjoyable romp down last the quarter. Above all, though, we like the swagger on this track.
‘Fake’ begins with an insistent guitar winding around a snared drum.
The bass sounds are grumbly, and the guitars ferment emotionally around the controlled heat & metal.
The “Nothing more than fake…” chorus is resplendent and pro-active and that wonderful riff just slips into your pores to sizzle at your inner-being.
‘Walk Towards The Sun’ is electric slinky.
With a jack-hammer rhythm and sledged out riffs that shine like rough diamonds. In fact this might be glam/sleaze were it not so damn dark.
The voice is muddy and magnificent. And this is pitched just the right side of radio-friendly. Clever stuff!
Ambitious hard rock with a gritty voice, magnificent riffs and a helluva lot of dirty dark intentions.
