Petpiranha Reviews Die! Die! Die! Live In Glasgow
Die! Die! Die! have made the UK their second home and it only seems like five minutes ago they were storming up a riot over at Bar Bloc. Five months in reality so let’s be grateful.
The most noticeable thing this time around, and I’ve watched them a lot, is that singer-guitarist Andrew Wilson commands his vocals with the authority of a general giving orders to frontline troops. This is creative hardcore with a vocal performance that few could match. The reality is many hardcore influenced underground bands can’t sing very well. Or they can but don’t make the effort to do it consistently throughout a set. Or the soundguy can’t get the vocal high enough over the wall of noise coming from the band.
Die! Die! Die! haven’t gone soft. They’ve never sounded more creative, joyful or energetic. Perhaps with the guitar parts becoming more abstract, the vocals keep us hooked in despite a rhythm section hell bent on playing at 100mph. Forget the recorded version, Sideways Here We Come played live at breakneck pace is one of the catchiest songs you’ll hear. It’s almost doing it a disservice to listen to the recorded original or even a live session. Someone please email me a live version of that song! There must be something about having an audience that ignites the fury.
‘Harmony’ described by Rolling Stone Australia as “…their finest work yet”.
