If you were into Sepultura and Fear Factory in the 90’s then you will feel a natural gravitation to the new offering from Wollongong act Gunmen.
A complete reversal in style from his other group Monstrom, creator G. Robert Edwards drags 90’s metal into the 21st century with an unpretentious and unrelenting rock/metal hybrid that makes you want to put your mathematical formulas aside and jump into the pit.
The music is heavy yet uncomplicated punctuated by fat driving riffs, while the vocal attack is a nod to Max Cavalera circa the Chaos AD era.
Politically motivated lyrics tear apart issues as diverse as gun violence, paedophile priests, sociopath politicians, environmental collapse, and the insidious side of AI with little fear of acceptable parameters.
Recorded and produced by Edwards with long-time collaborator Skinny, Gunmen could well be the new soundtrack to occupy your thoughts while waiting for the world to be torn asunder.
