Executioner's Mask - Despair Anthems LP
Executioner’s Mask is the dark post punk child of three unlikely suspects: Jay Gambit of the noise metal unit Crowhurst providing vocals, Ryan Wilson from the legendary Howling Void lending both guitar and drum programming and LACE and Cop Warmth’s Craig Mickle handles even more guitar. Offering a modern take on the classic blueprints set by bands like AFI, The Sisters Of Mercy and Red Lorry, Yellow Lorry.
Hailing from equal parts Texas and Philadelphia, 2018’s ‘True Blue’ demo was gloomy and cavernous while weaving infectious hooks at every turn. Not too much sooner after, the group completed production on their Profound Lore debut “Despair Anthems”. The album features production from Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, Nothing) and Ryan Schwabe (Big Thief, Algernon Caldweller) that remains both raw and satisfying throughout.
