Whips/Chains joins Deathwish
Deathwish are proud to welcome Louisville’s Whips/Chains to our affiliated family. Featuring Ryan Patterson (Coliseum), Ben Sears (Black God), and Will Allard (Xerxes), Whips/Chains play a brand of heavy, apocalyptic music for the trying times we live in. This massive sounding down-tuned three piece takes influence from bands like His Hero Is Gone, Bolt Thrower, and others.
“Master/Slave” is Whips/Chains debut 12″EP. Taking no time to set a tone, opener “Secular Front” crawls through a wreckage of noise before breaking into a D-Beat stride. Other songs “Brick and Mortar”, “Trembling and Alone”, and “Human Filth” carry this same bombastic quality, but also introduce subtle hooks into the fray.
