Englands Gallows have arrived to remind us of punks angry roots. Their debut album, Orchestra of Wolves, originally released in the UK in 2006, saw the band immediately heralded as saviors of the scene, the best British punk band since The Clash (Kerrang!), with one of the finest displays of sneering, snotty attitude since The Sex Pistols. (Total Guitar). Gallows combine the founding fury of bands like Black Flag and Minor Threat, blended with the melodic hardcore of Refused, and a brutally honest social vision, unflinchingly tackling topics such as hometown violence, date rape and broken homes.
