Let It Die are back (that was quick!) and are still as raging as their demo showed before.
Vocalist, Red, seems to have stepped up a gear in terms of lyrics as it's all become a little more direct and the sense of outrage is strong with this one.
Sample the short but sweet 27-second Funeral Of No Tears and it almost seems like a sonic attempt at defining 'to the point'.
I don't have to explain myself/Or bow to your biased ways seems to be the order of the day. The best description I can come up with for Let It Die's rush of noise is a more energetic Dystopia or a less pilled-up Crossed Out. It's self-loathing and misanthropic, but never descends into bro-like machismo, which they could easily cross over into with some terrible gang vocals or some chug-punctuated monosyllabic lyrics like WE! WILL! NEVER! GIVE! IN!
What we have on this frankly packed 7" (there's six songs on there) is a band on their way to making an album varied enough to stand out among a world of similar-sounding bands. Apparently they kick it live too, so it's to my shame I haven't checked them out yet. Mind you, if they employ the feedback that rings in Solitaire at gigs, then you might not be able to hear them anyway.
