ALBUM REVIEW: THE DECLINE!- ’12a Calgary Road’ (2014)
The Decline! is a five piece punk rock band from Rennes, Breizh formed in 2009. Their first EP, ‘An Old Indian Cemetery’, was released in the middle of 2010, and showed what proper genuine music today should be all about. Their first full length ‘Broken Hymns For Beating Hearts’ from 2011 was a mix of punk rock and acoustic folk tunes and was as good a first album any punk band could expect to release. Their sound is a combination of a strong and distinctive voice, with a thick, twin guitar attack and rumbling rhythm section which gets your blood pumping and drags you back for listen after listen. For their new album ’12a Calgary Road’ the band plough pretty much the same furrow taking on varying tempos with ease and keeping your interest.
