about

Parisian quintet COWARDS have become an unrelenting force since their inception in 2012, imposing their ruthless blend of metallic hardcore and sludge over a couple of 12" releases and stages all across Europe. Only getting stronger and stronger as time passes by, the band now returns with their second album «Rise To Infamy». These ten tracks stand up as their most cohesive work, brutally combining the heritage of Holy Terror/H8000 inspired-hardcore with devastating sludge and black metal savagery.

Carrying a deep, oppressive urban coldness behind their spectacularly crushing wall of sound, the level of aggressivity spilled on «Rise To Infamy» is hard to endure. Everything has been managed to inflict maximum aural damage; once again recorded by Francis Caste at Sainte Marthe Studio in fall 2014, the band's monstrous tones sounds colder and more massive than ever. This is nothing but a monument of down-to-earth, unvarnished violence, punishing from start to finish.

Le quintet parisien COWARDS s'est imposé comme une force incessante depuis leur introduction en 2012, imposant leur mélange impitoyable de hardcore/metal et de sludge à coups de 12" et de concerts à travers l'Europe.
Le temps qui passe ne les rendant que plus forts, le groupe revient avec leur 2nd album "Rise To Infamy". Ces dix titres se révélants être leurs plus cohérents, combinant sans vergogne un héritage inspiré Holy Terror/H8000 avec la sauvagerie du black metal et du sludge.

Avec sa charge profondément urbaine, froide et oppressive, derrière un mur de son dévastateur, le niveau d'agressivité dégagé sur "Rise To Infamy" est difficilement supportable. Tout a été poussé au maximum pour infliger un maximum de dégât auditif; enregistré une fois de plus par Francis Caste au studio Sainte-Marthe à l'automne 2014, le son monstrueux du groupe est plus froid et massif que jamais. Ce n'est ni plus ni moins qu'un monument de pure violence, les pieds ancrés dans le bitume, sans concession du début à la fin.
