The Black Map #156: Hounds from the Isle Of White!
“The devil’s agents may be of flesh and blood, may they not?” ~ Arthur Conan Doyle, The Hound of the Baskervilles
A five piece Hardcore crew forged from the remains of Dead Town Nothing with unfinished business to attend to, Hounds unleashed their inner beasts from their cages. First came the “TheDead Town Nothing Tapes“, a compilation album of completed works from their collective history that allowed them to lay the past to rest before throwing caution to the wind and unleashing a new pair of cuts in “Snakes” and “Beast“. The new tracks feel fresh, as Hounds are now an older wiser and more aggressive outfit and with them they’re showcasing a new, heavier sound that blends Hardcore and Metal with angular riffs and larynx splitting vocals. They’re keeping their future plans under wraps but if they’re not tearing up the road like Ghost Rider at the tale end of 2021, then we’re a Monkeys Uncle.
