Cowards - Shooting Blanks And Pills

Only given this one blast through and it seems pretty damn good. Total 90s twisted metallic hardcore feel. I might chuck in some names like Bloodlet and Turmoil to add to the ones the label gives in their blurb:-

"Gathering parisians with an already strong pedigree in dark and heavy music, COWARDS regurgitates gutter hardcore, unhealthy sludge/doom and nauseous black metal in “Shooting Blanks And Pills”, their deeply raw and anxiogenic debut release. Only six months were needed to give birth to this full-length, monstrosity with a desperate urban feeling, bridge between the knife-in-the-heart crudeness of Eyehategod or Kickback and the majestic darkness of bands like Deathspell Omega or Thou. With a sound carrying smells of pissy streets and the dry blood you get for a sidelong glance, producer Francis Caste have perfectly catched the gist of these 38 minutes, recreating this forced apnea in a bile tank with a no frills approach." Cowards features current and ex-members of Sickbag, Death Mercedes, Hangman’s Chair, Eibon, Glorior Belli, Dacast, Colossus of Destiny…

“Shooting Blanks And Pills” will be released on 12” vinyl during june via Throatruiner and Hellbound Records, the band's own structure. Artwork and logo by Førtifem - http://fortifem.fr/
