Liars Cult - Book Of Lies EP


1. Book Of Lies
2. Curtain Call
3. Har Megiddo

There's been a bit of an influx of US hardcore bands springing up recently out of the ashes of older metalcore bands, which is no bad thing in my opinion. Liars Cult is a new name to me but features members that did time in the likes of Bleeding Through, Mean Season, Locked Up AD and Lose None, so they have some pedigree. "Book Of Lies" is the quintet's debut EP and has been released via US label Blasphemour Records. They're looking to get more active on the live circuit too so keep an eye (and ear) out for live dates.

Liars Cult is typically old-school, as you’d expect. Book Of Lies (and indeed the band) takes cues from the likes of Shadows Fall and Agnostic Front while retaining it’s own sense of melody and brutality. Their brand of hardcore is not all about breakdowns or crowd-kill and they inject it with a lot of metal influence. Curtain Call is laden with thrash and the urgency gets the heart racing, yet it does’t feel underdone or half-assed. The guitar work during Har Megiddo is really tight and the music overall is controlled yet aggressive. Three songs really ain’t enough but hopefully we’ll hear more from these guys soon.
