London’s Trials of Early Man are bloody angry! Louder Than War’s Ioan Humphreys Finds out why.
Trials of Early Man are an emo/punk band that hail from parts of Hampshire and London and feature members of local scene noise botherers, Caretaker, Action & Action, Circusact, The Correct Arc and The Good Wife.
Their new 10 track ‘Attachment’ LP shows off their influences (early Emo, a la, Rites of Spring and others on Dischord) that have a more agitprop sound rather than your standard ‘screamo’ shouty bands. This makes them far more likable than a lot of said ‘screamo’ bands around these days.
They really sound like they have something to say, albeit with an intricate ‘mathcore’ approach to their time signatures and song structure. This lot are obviously angry about something maaaan.
Ok, I admit, they are pretty ‘screamo’, but they have plenty of riffs, tunes and noise going on that lifts them above the rest to be honest.
Catch them at the Hope & Anchor, London, UK on 28th January 1016
