American Aftermath is now streaming Rise To Infamy, the entire second LP from Paris-based COWARDS, a massive month-and-a-half ahead of its physical street date in early February.
The COWARDS sound dredges forth a deep, oppressive, urban harshness amidst their crushing wall of amplification, which stabs blackened sludge metal savagery into the band’s Holy Terror/H8000 inspired-hardcore. The levels of aggression on Rise To Infamy are difficult to endure; everything the band has managed to capture here is meant to inflict maximum aural damage. Recorded by trusted engineer Francis Caste at Sainte Marthe Studio (Arkhon Infaustus, Eibon, Kickback), the band’s monstrous tones here sound more callous than ever. This is nothing but a monument of down-to-earth, unvarnished violence, punishing from start to finish.
American Aftermath has interrogated COWARDS alongside the stream of the entire LP which is all now playing at THIS LOCATION.
With multiple labels helping disburse the dismal Rise To Infamy to the masses on February 9th, preorders for all physical versions are now available. The digipak CD and shirt bundles can be preordered through Deadlight Entertainment HERE, LP and shirt bundles via RVINS Records HERE, and preorders for the LP including shirt bundles and a free digital download via Throatruiner Records HERE.
COWARDS will unload an official video and announce new tour dates preceding and in conjunction with the release of Rise To Infamy.
