EP: The Abyss Stares Back Bands: The Butters Aliens Twelve Twelve SUE Release: 1st May 2020
Three bands from the Birmingham underground punk scene got together and decided to work on a collaboration EP. Their task was for each band to write a song on the theme of Cosmic Horror. This interesting project is finally here as “The Abyss Stares Back” Split EP.
“Rat Trap” is the fist track, which is by The Butter Aliens. The fast pace steady rhythm is very effective in this catchy garage punk tune, which you won’t stop tapping your foot to. The band express their dissatisfaction with the course of modern life which many listeners will relate to.
The second track is “Pills” by Twelve Twelve. It begins with an appealing guitar sound but then takes you to a somewhat dark and slightly disturbing place. The song is all about an expression of dealing with drug addiction and associated issues. This is a sound tune coming from the young band.
The third and last track is “The Beast” by a doom punk trio called SUE. From start to finish, they demonstrate a fast tempo rock’n’roll sound with a captivating guitar sound. The song is about existential anxiety, which makes you feel that emotion through the energetic and chaotic vocal.
This EP is for you to bear witness to three of the best unsigned bands that the Midlands has to offer right now.
