WINDS OF PLAGUE

FLEX YOUR BICEPS AND HALVE YOUR IQ – DEATHCORE’S MEATIEST RE­TURN. SORT OF

Kerrang! (UK) - - Reviews -

■ WINDS OF Plague are back.well, vo­cal­ist Johnny Plague is, with five oth­ers who weren’t in the band when they dropped 2013’s Re­sis­tance. Those fear­ing they have there­fore thrown their sound out the win­dow and started anew can rest easy, for at least half the record is the same sort of synth­sprin­kled mus­cle­bound chest-thump­ing they have long dealt in.along­side this ad­her­ence to the for­mula, how­ever, it would ap­pear that some­one has taken the Cal­i­for­ni­ans to one side and pointed out that their mu­sic doesn’t sound par­tic­u­larly now. So, in their ef­forts to mod­ernise their en­ter­prise, they’ve spo­rad­i­cally in­cluded el­e­ments that ape the likes of BMTH and Bad Omens, par­tic­u­larly on From Fail­ure Comes Clar­ity.thank­fully, there are enough orig­i­nal flour­ishes here to avoid this lot finding them­selves sad­dled with the moniker ‘Winds Of Pla­gia­rism’ for their ef­forts, but only just. DOWN­LOAD: Kings Of Car­nage. FOR FANS OF: Em­mure, Cane Hill. DAN SLESSOR
