Death Kindly Waits For Me – ‘Wires//Iron//Blood’ EP
Pop-Punk infused, Emo seasoned, Post-Hardcore from Northampton.
A lot of our staff are involved in various music groups across the wide world of Facebook. As you may expect, it often yields a decent amount of our features for the website, and that is exactly why you are reading this right now.
The band released their three track EP, Wires//Iron//Blood, back in March of this year and despite it only being a few months old and contemporary, it sent my mind back to the Emo/Post-Hardcore sound of the earlier 2000’s.
There are enough Pop-Punk-isms to keep modern fans of the genre happy though, with ‘Best Friends Just Don’t Do That’ being a good example. The melodies are sound and vocalist Adam Fitch’s dulcet tones carry enough emotion in them to get those feeley-feels going, without being too much.
I’m not often a fan of vocals in this vein, but they seem to work well enough and they’re not too “Pierce The Veil”, which is nice because that would be irritating.
In fact, enough of the older Post-Hardcore dynamic comes through to add balance to the whole thing, as the genre’s inception in the 80’s and continued evolution has shaped much of modern Punk and Punk-rooted music in general.
‘Decade’ Of War’ finishes the EP and seems to carry a very slight, socio-political edge to it. It might just be me but I did notice this while browsing through some of the band’s other material on their youtube channel, so see for yourself.
Musically it’s similar to the first track, but darker and more drawn out. So, if you’re into big Emo chorus’ and soaring vocals, then you’ll get on well with this one.
