The InbetweenTheScreams Record of the Week: THOSE DAMN CROWS – FEAR OF THE BROKEN

I have been involved in music in one form or another for more years than I care to mention and I have to hold my hands up and admit that it is easy to become a little numbed by the continual reviews, previews and endless onslaught of music that comes into my world. So when Mik from Factory Music Management pinged me to say I really should check a band out ahead of the debut album I didn’t exactly break sweat downloading the album.

And for that I owe Those Damn Crows an apology and maybe a few litres of whatever rocket fuel this five-piece are drinking down in Bridgend.

If you had told me back in January that a debut album from a relatively unknown Welsh band of rock musicians who play rock the way it should be would be up there vying for the InbetweenTheScreams Album of the Year I would have looked at you rather quizzically with an amused smile rippling my lips. Go on with you…….away now.

Take note of this all you lovers of rock in its purest and most brutal form… in a year that has had new releases from Deftones, Killswitch Engage, Rival Sons, Anthrax, Beartooth, Volbeat, Megadeth, Prong, The Cult and the mighty Katatonia….. and many more, all bands I hold in the highest esteem as the pinnacle of what floats my boat, the forthcoming debut album MURDER AND THE MOTIVE from Those Damn Crows is up there in the top tier of releases. And despite some monumental albums due for release in the coming months, including the mouth-watering release from ADTR, I simply cannot see anything knocking this riff-fest of a storming album out of the top three albums of the year.

YES IT IS THAT GOOD!

I will be doing a full album review soon (watch the usual channels for details) but in the meantime check out an early release from the album, FEAR OF THE BROKEN

THOSE DAMN CROWS is:

Shane Greenhall – Vocals

Ian ‘Shiner’ Thomas – Guitar

Ronnie Huxford – Drums

Lloyd Wood – Bass

David Winchurch – Guitar

These guys are building up a mighty noise for themselves in the music media and deservedly so and this album will make you realise why. A stop you dead in your tracks monster of an album that combines a vocalist that is almost untouchable in modern rock and a band delivering the type of aural walls of brutal yet melodic rock that headline bands selling out festivals would kill for.

YOU SERIOUSLY MUST NOT MISS THIS ALBUM

MURDER AND THE MOTIVE is released on the 26th September

Check back soon for the full review.

Keep it LOUD!!!

    Only found these recently and absolutely love their stuff. Looking forward to seeing them in Camden on October and buying the album.

      Tell you something Chris, finding bands like this struggling to get recognition they so rightly deserve is both brilliant, in that there are bands like this out there, and disheartening in equal measure. They should be out there headlining for sure but hopefully they will pick up a decent major support slot as a minimum off this.

      The album truly is stunning. Every track!!
