Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Stephen Carter (vocals, guitar); Frank Carter (vocals); Laurent Barnard (guitar, keyboards); Perry Mason, Marren Fielinski (violin); Bruce Ruhite (viola); David Daniels (cello); Lee Barrall (drums).

  • Recording information: Rak Studios, London, England; The Farm Studios, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
  • English hardcore hooligans Gallows made a huge splash with the raw, throwback hardcore of their debut album, ORCHESTRA OF WOLVES, but they were only just beginning. Their demolishing follow-up, GREY BRITAIN, is more ambitious, louder, and just plain bigger, with a metallic finish that betrays some hours listening to Slayer. Enlisting superstar heavy-music producer GGGarth, who previously helmed records by Slipknot and Atreyu, the band has polished up their sound without dulling their impact. "I Dread the Night" weaves teetering guitars through a jagged mid-tempo rhythm, and the thrash-metal tinged "Queensberry Rules" is like the furious son of Judas Priest. The biggest departure, at least for some of its running time, is "The Vulture (Acts I & II)," which begins as a genuine acoustic ballad before finally exploding. It's ample proof that the boys have some weightier matters, such as the precipitous decline of their homeland, on their minds.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.28) - Ranked #37 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2009" -- "[A]s unrelentingly grim as it all may seem, they never forget to swing."

Alternative Press (p.104) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "GREY BRITAIN sports some decidedly non-punk maneuvers in the form of piano-concerto codas and unnerving sound effects that elevate the band from mere street-punk clich‚s."

Q (Magazine) (p.122) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Frontman Frank Carter's scabrous observations channel Morrissey via Johnny Rotten, while the gang-punk choruses bristle with bone-breaking violence."
