Orchestra of Wolves

September 3rd, 2007 · Written by · No Comments


At a mere 5’5 and a buck fifteen, red-headed frontman Frank Carter hardly looks like a formidable foe; however, Carter is currently standing tallest amongst the recent batch of this summer’s buzz bands. From the streets of Watford, England, Carter, with his younger brother and bandmates, have dropped one of the best hardcore albums of the year and put on live shows that have been described as legendary. With Carter’s snarl channeling the ghost of Johnny Rotten (of the Sex Pistols) coupled with a hybrid of new school hardcore and 80’s punk sensibilities, Gallows has struck the balance between grit and blue collar ethos and melody. Dubbed the saviors of a scene, Gallows traverses the subjects of broken homes, street violence, and date rape. The antithesis of safe, Gallows is brutally powerful street punk. If having one of the most insanely violent live shows isn’t reason enough to peak your interest, vocalist Frank Carter is a renowned tattoo artist who has hauled his gear along for their U.S. tour. So go see ‘em and get inked after the show… that is, after you pick your teeth up off the floor.
