The Twin Dracula – Hell Hath All Fury

 

Hell Hath All Fury_RingMaster ReviewAs they started the year, UK rockers The Twin Dracula end it with a ferocious slab of noise bred, punk fuelled rock ‘n’ roll. This time it is courtesy of new EP Hell Hath All Fury, four tracks which tenaciously roar and aggressively tempt as they remind all what an exciting and sadly still majorly unrecognised band they are.

Formed in 2012, the quartet took little time in arousing attention and eager appetites for their raw rock incitement through a fierce live presence and debut EP Introducing. Its success and potential was equalled and built upon by its successor TTD​/​GFY, and both in turn surpassed in sound and invention by the Death Is Our Client EP which was unleashed at the beginning of 2015. With bands such as Kid Dynamite, Wipers, Rocket From The Crypt, Propagandhi, and The Bronx potent inspirations, the encounter showed a new adventure and mature imagination brewing within The Twin Dracula songwriting and sound, one in full cry now through Hell Hath All Fury.

The EP opens up with Catholic Discipline, a seriously swift incitement which more is an introduction to the release than an individual statement, though to be fair its predatory stalking of the senses and vocal ire more than wakes an ever ready appetite for The Twin Dracula fury. The sonic wind buffets ears for a breeze over a minute before flowing straight into the quickly thrilling tempest of Liars. The track begins offloading jabbing beats from its first breath as a storm of dirty riffs blows, that the vehicle for seriously tantalising grooves and a volatile rhythmic incitement. In turn this draws in a great the blend of enraged punk vocals and a gripping web of hooks and grooves to get greedy over. The band’s sound has never seen a lacking of such attributes but here the tapestry is more creatively involved and imaginative than ever as the band entwines a broad array of noise and rock ‘n’ roll bred flavours.

From one impressive track to another as the metallic hues closing off the second track is superbly contrasted by the more punk pop/alternative rock welcome of Alura. Without defusing that potent tempting, band and track soon weave in fiercer and more aggressively tenacious elements into the infection; their punk ‘n’ roll again taking on an almost kaleidoscopic quality in its impassioned and compelling storm.

   You’ll Never Defeat The Cobras arrives to complete the EP; it another track which evolves and dances around with persistently rapid infusions of new ideation and flavours ranging from metal and melodic rock to hardcore, noise, and punk rock. The track is irresistible, its sinews veering on the barbarous at times and melodic adventure perpetually seductive as it caresses and sears ears, whilst rhythms and vocals, in their own individual ways, entrance with anthemic prowess. It is a mighty end to Hell Hath All Fury, a dramatic and thrilling finish to an equally scintillating incitement.

The Twin Dracula just gets better and better, release by release. Time for all to get bitten we suggest.

The Twin Dracula – Death Is Our Client

10661618_739876806066774_4299550454266036612_o

Bred from a punk rock seeding, the sound of UK rockers The Twin Dracula just seems to get broader and more flavoursome with every release and that is without losing the snarl and aggressive passion which marked out their first offering just over eighteen month ago. The band recently unleashed third EP Death Is Our Client and it is not too far from the mark to say that British punk ‘n’ roll has rarely sounded as creatively expansive and violently imposing as the tracks which ignite the excellent encounter.

Formed in 2012, the British quartet grabbed, like a great many, our attention with their debut release, which was simply called Introducing when released in 2013. It was a raw roar of hardcore causticity rich in potential and strong on antagonistic craft. Its successor TTD​/​GFY not only reinforced that first potent impression and appetite for the band’s sound, but showed new adventure and invention which Death Is Our Client has taken to new impressive pastures. Sculpted on the inspirations of bands such as Kid Dynamite, Wipers, Rocket From The Crypt, Propagandhi, and The Bronx, the band’s music is a brawling contagion which takes no prisoners yet treats them like guests once ears and attention have been enslaving, offering always and especially on the new encounter something seriously special.

First track Nom De Plume is simply a ravishing sonic blaze of temptation from its first breath, guitars abrasing ears with addictive riffing punctured by just as forceful beats. It is soon in full a0584789698_2swing though with grooves and hooks as virulent And potent as the inviting scrub of guitar energy around them. Once vocals bring a flame of melodic toxicity into the picture, energy rises to a high and attitude becomes confrontational but still the song is nothing less than contagious provocation. That Rocket From The Crypt spicing is a loud whisper in the song but equally a breeze of Ghost of a Thousand and Reuben like fury is adding its potency to the riotous blaze of sound and intensity.

It is a commanding and breath-taking start swiftly emulated and surpassed by the infectiousness and hostility of rebellious Occultimate Warrior. Again a ridiculously compelling and nastily catchy offering from its opening second, the track also explores a web of addictive hooks and anthemic ferocity vocally and sonically. It all combines to cast the most antagonistic and irresistible seduction which leaves ears smarting and emotions lustful. Hardcore punk comes in varying shapes and colours as more imaginative bands emerge to charge its boundaries, and on the evidence of this song alone, but backed rigorously by its companions, The Twin Dracula is there to the fore leading this fresh investment in the scene.

The closing Newtown Jazz Revival is almost funky in comparison to its predecessor, opening with the darkest and most delicious bassline heard for a while. Its lure is courted by abrasing riffs and jabbing beats which soon expel their fullest weight and tenacity to add to an already captivating persuasion. The song proves to be a mellower encounter than the other two songs on the EP, vocally cleaner harmonic vocals aligning to warm melodic acidity and endeavour. It does not stop the song growling with a grouchy breath and provocative nature though as the band unveils yet another adventurous twist and aspect to their gripping sound.

Introducing had us excited and its successor even more thrilled, but Death Is Our Client feels like a whole new ball game in so many ways, which leaves anticipation for what comes next from the band and acclaim upon them brimming.

Death Is Our Client is available now on CD through Crucial Taunt @ http://www.crucialtaunt.bigcartel.com/product/the-twin-dracula-death-is-our-client-cd and digitally @ http://thetwindracula.bandcamp.com/album/death-is-our-client

The Twin Dracula – Introducing

TTD

Making their entrance with a rather tasty and raucous release, UK punk rockers The Twin Dracula instantly set themselves as a band rich in potential and strong on antagonistic craft. Their debut EP, Introducing is a brawl of contagious enterprise and belligerent passion cast within a hardcore animosity. It is an aggressive and confronting encounter but also one unafraid to throw in a captivating hook or rhythmic seduction and a host of melodic creativity which only accentuates and compliments the riotous heart of the songs. The EP is maybe not quite stretching borders or sculpting new heights but certainly is providing a potent breath and promising fire to thrust the band firmly on the punk rock radar.

Formed in 2012, the quartet takes inspirations from the likes of Kid Dynamite, Propagandhi, and The Bronx into a proposition coverwhich grabs attention with ease. Comprised of four eager and bold tracks with a raw energy and similarly uncompromising intent, Introducing takes mere moments to enclose the ears in an intimidating and fully persuasive encounter. Opener Check Mate is choice punk rock from start to finish; it’s first touch a rapping of rhythms and last a lingering toxicity which draws you back time and time again. It takes mere seconds for the track to hit full stride, riffs and rhythms stomping with attitude and intensity whilst the vocals scowl and challenge thoughts with a semi clean scowl of a delivery enjoyably reinforced by group shouts and barracking. The rhythmic core is a constant temptation throughout the song and keeps the pressure going perfectly even when the song impressively dips into a restrained and melodic detour before returning with nostrils flaring for an anthemic finale. It is a striking and thrilling start to the release and as a first engagement with the band, a song drenched in promise providing unbridled satisfaction.

The following Guts has a heavier imposing intensity and gait compared to its predecessor, one skirted by a sonic enterprise which lights its darkest corners. The almost lumbering entrance holds a menace to temper the melodic design searing its edges and combined the elements give the song an intriguing lure, especially when the sounds come to a halt and an excellent expressive lone vocal expels the first calls of the narrative which in turn coaxes out a fiery return of striding riffs and imaginative flames framed in a rampant rhythmic temptation. It is a smouldering slice of rich enticement which shows a depth to the band’s songwriting and their ability to stretch it further again with sound and imagination.

The next up All The Fours brings an immediate swagger and enticement to its initial scrub of riffs to confirm the potential and quality shown in its predecessor. The addictive tone and jagged edge of the guitar brings thoughts of Rocket From The Crypt to mind whilst the subsequent abrasive and compelling fury has the marks of fellow emerging Brits Dead Retinas to its caustic presence. Like the opener the track is an addictive anthem of rhythmic pugnacity and sonic rascality forged into an infectious charge which stirs up the senses and passions with aggressive revelry. A punk stomp with muscular heavy rock intensity, it is a formidable incitement to again easily hang the passions upon.

The closing Woodley Swine is a hardcore bred slice of punk ferocity, a direct and scathing lashing of sound and vocal hostility which without matching earlier heights riles up the emotions and imagination in strong and hoarsely rowdy style. It is a fine conclusion to an excellent debut from The Twin Dracula; Introducing the first impressive step of a band with the fire and potential to make a deep mark certainly on the evidence of this entrance.
