The Virginmarys – Divides
Some say punk is dead but one listen to Divides and those rumors will be put to rest. Divides is fist pumping, boot stomping, and vivacious hype inducing. The lyrics are blunt and unrepentant, backed by the trio’s fired up riffs and beats. No lie, this album is nothing short of amazing. Even when they take the tempo down a notch with a slower song like “Moths to a Flame” the passion and aggression prevalent through the album is still felt without missing a beat.
The fact that the tracks feel so big and rowdy; especially coming out of a “traditional” punk three-piece is kick-ass as well. To accomplish such a rambunctious sound with only the “bare bones”; guitar, bass, drums, some distortion, and a lot of attitude, which is quite honestly exactly what punk is all about.
If you’re already a fan, then you can rest easy, The Virginmarys are just getting better and better, if you are totally unaware of who these guys arem stop reading, get on itunes or soundcloud and educate yourself like NOW.
