Have your say

THE Watford hardcore crew are back with their fourth album, and seldom has a record been so aptly named.

From the off, it has a gloomy, end-of-the-world feel to it, but that can’t disguise the fact it’s nowhere near as good as their first two.

Frontman Wade McNeil is no Frank Carter, and the departure of the original vocalist’s brother take them another step away from what made them different in the first place.

They sound very generic, though opener Mystic Death, Chains and Leather Crown have their moments. 6/10. GW
