‘Whatever You Do, Don’t Turn up at Twelve’

 

History_Of_Guns_photo_1aThis is the fourth full length released from History Of Guns due to be released on March 26th 2012 and it’s the first I’ve heard of them. History Of Guns are classes as a cross genre band and I don’t think I’ve ever read a truer description of a band before.
Mixing everything from Joy Division styled vocals through to grind core styled instrumentation along with dance and techno beats this entire album is a whirlwind of genres.
This album is difficult to stop listening to as it’s that damn bizarre.
The recording quality and production itself is not amazing but the ideas that are placed into every track are surreal. To go from some of the heaviest riffs you can imagine to soothing piano parts shows how talented yet wacky History of Guns are.
Whatever genre of music you like or dislike it is a promise that there will be something in History of Guns sound that you are bound to enjoy. Be it industrial through to punk or dance through to rock there will be something in it for you. 6.75/10
