Pawns - 'Monuments Of Faith' 7" EP

added by Alex Deller on Wednesday April 17 2019 in New Releases

Inflammable Material have got a new record out - the 'Monuments Of Faith' EP by NYC punx Pawns. The label says: "ollowing up their well-received 'Gallows' LP, New York City's Anarcho-Deathrock hybrid return with three new tracks. Against the landscape drawn up by 80s-influenced post-punk, Pawns exchange full-on punk rage for a gloomy animosity by exploring dark and desperate melodies. Bass-heavy rhythms and choral guitar tones are topped off by vocalist Gage Allison's ominous baritone vocals in a rich maelstrom of bleak gothic punk. Title track 'Monuments Of Faith' and 'Shadows Of Hiroshima' are fast and melodic, whilst 'Broken' is a soaring, anthemic, Bauhaus-style stormer." If you're in north America or just like big records with not many songs on, you can get a 12" version from Near Dark Records.
