Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Officer Down.

…seeing as 2020 is the 20th Anniversary of “Carved From Empty Words” by Stampin’ Ground, it was only ever a matter of time before a head to head for single “Officer Down” appeared in this very feature. It’s a classic track from a classic album. Simple as. They may have had a turbulent career but what they did create, they did impressively well. We’d have them back in a heartbeat.

In the Red Corner we have Brighton Progressive Metalcore act Architects, whose version appeared on the 2008 compilation “Century Media: Covering 20 Years of Extremes” and dates back to the time between albums “Ruin” and “Hollow Crown” when they were a very different beast to the on they are today. In the Blue Corner we have Venom Prison who dropped their version in June 2020, coinciding with Police brutality in the streets in the US and during the build up to “Primeval”. That’s a re-recording of their early EPs “Defy The Tyrant” and “Primal Chaos” released as one on 9th October via Prosthetic Records. Who wins? You decide!
