Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes - End of Suffering: Album Review
Is it just me, or does the name of this band conjure up a different genre altogether? With a name like Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, I had visions of a rock ‘n’ roll themed oufit.
So you can imagine my surprise when heavy rock came blaring out of the speakers!
The first four tracks were a wake up call, with guitarist Tom Morello guesting on track two, ‘Tyrant Lizard King’. I suppose the names of the songs should have given away the style of music!
Track three - ‘Heartbreaker’ had a feel of the Foo Fighters’ hit ‘Rope’.
The pace continued with the fourth track ‘Crowbar’ with thrashing guitars and pounding drums.
A piano came out for ‘Love Games’ where things slowed down a little and ‘Anxiety’ brought the tempo right down before starting up again in the chorus.
Then ‘Angel Wings’ (track seven) was simply beautiful and reminded me of some of the slower music from Linkin Park.
The band aren’t afraid of tackling controversial subjects and parents be warned that some the language is not suitable for younger listeners. But I found myself enjoying the music and will look out for more.
The album is out now.
