Austria has a lot of things to be famous for in the past century but not to be in anyway controversial my favourite things up to this point were their amazing sausages and Arnie. I now have a third thing to add to this collective and that is Austrian five piece, hardcore mob Give Em Blood.
Having formed in 2009 Give Em Blood are quickly making a name for themselves and with constant touring and a handful of early releases they are getting the recognition that they deserve. Their most recent release Seven Sins is set to propel the band into the gaze of the world of hardcore with no mercy taken and no shits given.
Taking influences from bands such as Bring Me The Horizon and I Killed The Prom Queen and flipping them upside down, Give Em Blood provide a song that is fresh but comfortably familiar. It is a style of music if it is done well it’s a work of art but if it is done badly it is dreadful. Luckily for Give Em Blood they are a good young band and they land in the first category.
After performing with the likes of Liferuiner and Deez Nuts the guys in Give Em Blood are set to have an amazing 2013. 8.8/10
