Comply or Die new album review #Depths

Comply or Die

Album launch September 8th

I’m a man of very few words, especially when it comes to reviewing music. A lot of reviews get dogged down in words and comparisons to similar music without answering whether the bloody thing is any good or not.

I can sum up Depths, the new album by Northern Irish punks Comply or Die, with one word. “Uncompromising”

Years of listening to punk rock and living in the “give it to me right now” generation means I have an attention span no longer than it takes to burn toast, but it’s the 2 longer tracks that stand out for me on the album. Comply or Die are undoubtedly punk rock but aren’t sticking to that “genres” limitations, they play their own brand off sludgey facemelting rock n roll. “Vermin” clocks in at an impressive  11+ mins and by the time the vocals kick in I could’ve listened to 5 Ramones songs. The vocals though sparse are great and have a unique (to my ears) sound. Riff after riff it builds and builds till it drops into a valley where you can’t quiet see the bottom only to clamber back up and start kicking ass again. It doesn’t FEEL like i’m listening to a long song and i want it to keep going for much longer. Luckily album closer “DMT” feeds my hunger with the 12 minutes of noisey riffs and beats.

I must stress that it takes a lot for me to be kept interested by lengthy songs when I’m much more at home with short sharp shocks, although I do love me some sludgey riffmasters like Slomatics or Mongolia.  The other songs are around the 3 to 4 minute mark and track 2 (Shanghied) and track 5 (I’m Sick Of This) particularly are balls out punk rock and roll with the shortest (2mins) almost instrumental song Tetsuo ticking all boxes for me.

Yes, this album is good, it’s one of my top releases this year. And its been a good year.

This is a band you can tell is at home in the live element. So take this as the blueprint for the attack and get down to the frontline when they release the album at The Menagerie, Belfast – Sept 8th Comply Or Die, Slomatics, The Burnt Reynolds FREE ENTRY doors 9pm
