ENEMIES OF PROMISE - Hearthland EP (*A REVIEW*)
In times of social confusion, political upheaval and economic uncertainty we need Rock'n'Roll that matters, and in this new error we are entering Enemies Of Promise matter, with their lyrical snapshots of this dis united and divided Kingdom we are living/existing in. Opening track Know Your Shame references Julian Assenge, David Kelly The second addresses the National Health servicing multi national drug companies Hearthland is a scathing attack on the North South divide. and Broken burys the capital punishment debate.
Enemies of Promise just keep getting better and better with each release, and the Hearthland E.P is their best yet. With dual vocals, power chords and thumping rhythms, they sound like Carter USM meeting The Jam, but with twice the passion. They are a force to be reckoned with; keeping the flag flying in the face of the impending storm that is heading our way unless people question the way the winds of change are blowing, and who the real enemy is. Insurrection and Revolution never sounded so pure, powerful and full of promise. Check 'em out over at their facebook page. Ignore and remain ignorant of a different future than the ones our enemies are promising us.
