Kent hardcore trio Tailblock have been on the go for a couple of years now, and already have some recognition to their name thanks to a successful EP in the form of Burn Your Bridges. Now they seek to take it to the next level with their upcoming follow-up – Think Or Be.
The title track kicks it off immensely well, being very dynamic and sporting a hell of a strong chorus. They retain that momentum progressing into Heavy Arms, which runs off a rigid rhythm. The riffs are tight and the vocals forcible in Rockets, and they blaze through the short but heavy Blisters.
They take occasional breaks over the course of Listen, giving time for the solid writing to sink in, and they eventually go in a more stripped down direction for closing song 100, with a more lyrical focus on show.
The guys have done it again, giving us all a cracking record that has a palpable energy to it and can be easily be relished by any fan of rock.
