Only three EP’s deep into a back catalogue of music filled with whirlwinds of absolute chaos and carnage, MSRY are back once again with their third slab of UK hardcore titled ‘Loss’. If theres one thing we are learning right from the offset is that this is an angry sounding bunch finding what appears to be many things to scream about. Its a groovy yet wonderfully pissed off sounding EP following the tried and tested methods MSRY are becoming well known for.
It all begins with ‘Gemini’. There’s groove and then there is frontman Kial Churcher spitting venom in the only way he knows how. Its continuously loud, in your face and will absolutely tickle the pickle of those whole like their hardcore filled with hate and anger. The band are even joined by none other than Liam Cormier of Cancer Bats fame on the track ’Still Breaks My Heart’ and while the vocal pairing isn’t too different, there is plenty here to like for fans of both bands as both.
‘Courage’ offers lots of bounce which will have many nodding their heads in approval but rest assured, theres still an overwhelming amount of of nasty guitar tone and brutal vocal to keep this anything but pleasant. Its only once the EP closes with the continuous screams of “is this what loss feels like” and you’re welcomed with a moment of silence you really comprehend the savagery of the noise you were just presented with. There is only one way this is to be heard. Play it loud and play it often!
Oxford hardcore quartet MSRY release their third EP “Loss” on 8th November 2019.
“Loss” is the follow-up to last year’s ”Safety First” EP, which received glowing praise from Kerrang! (KKKK) and Metal Hammer (8/10), and earned MSRY a place in The Guardian’s best new music of 2019 list alongside the likes of Yonaka, Slowthai and Fever 333. The band enjoyed frequent radio support from BBC Introducing Oxford, and their song 'Trump Card' was selected for airplay by the legendary Iggy Pop on his BBC Radio 6 show.
