The new record from ANNEX is up now via Mass Media Records and Imminent Destruction Records and you can stream it now through the player below. The band brings in a goth-oriented punk rock, enriched with influences from the sound of post-punk and new wave movements. Despite its indisputable energy, it provides an engaging dark mood than simply must be tasted. Bon appetit!
Young dark punks from a border town in Texas give the classic goth rock sound a well needed raw punk update. The distorted effect driven guitar theatrics are intact, but they are given extra bite as they shine from behind shadows of feedback. Vocalist Nikole sings in desperation and fury without abandoning melody, giving this record a hard-core edge. Its hard to hear where the post punk influences end and the dark melodic hard-core begin, which is a great thing in my opinion! Not dance floor goth music for sure but sure to tear up a post punk club near you and knock you and your drink to the ground.
11 brilliantly crafted songs blending intricate hooks, rolling pinpoint drumming and resonating guitar tones with passionate and committed vocals.
Powerful, addictive and emotional, these songs will hit you hard in body and mind. Extensive gigs in the USA have helped to hone their intense and ethereal sound and after a demo tape that sold out in a heartbeat, they’ve laid down a faultless LP for their vinyl debut. / Imminent Destruction Records
