EP: Throats – Throats

Release Date: February 1st, 2010
Label: Holy Roar
Website: None available


Throats‘ latest self-titled EP is a difficult beast to judge. It does so much right in terms of angry, raging noise making and apparent teeth ripping brutality yet there is something a miss at the heart of all the commotion. The windmilling elephant in the room is Converge‘s ‘No Heroes’, an album which was surely a massive influence on this 17 minute six-track bombshell. Along with the frantic screams, flesh stripping beats and howling guitar reliefs, the doom laden, overhanging darkness that fills every facet of this release marks the EP as a child of its father.

‘Wake’ does exactly what its title suggest, lurching the EP into action from its lumbering comatose. It’s a lumbering but hammer fisted opener that wrenches open its eyes in wait for what’s to come. ‘My Hands Are Cold’ is sadly probably not what its predecessor was expecting. It’s a functional 1:40 of pacey ragecore, but if a little generic and overdone. Thankfully ‘Fuck Life’ is just around the corner to stab itself through your inner ear and grab its place at the head of the highlight reel. It’s a galloping, double barrelled round of fury and flair straight to face. ‘Failgiver’ is all about the bleak, wailing release of the guitar lead chorus.
