EP Review: False Flag – False Flag (Self Released)

Hailing from India, False Flag’s DIY ethos is commendable, a band that formed after seeing Napalm Death perform. A punk metal band at heart, there is far more to False Flag then you might initially think. This self-titled debut EP has elements of black metal, thrash, crust-punk & more all wrapped up in three tracks of intense aggression. The EP will be independently released on December 25th 2017.

False Flag 1

Let’s get this clear straight away. This is a brilliant EP, one that is breath-taking in its wildness while retaining impressive amounts of exciting rhythm.

Spectrum Disorder displays so much punk-infused energy, the vocals snarling alongside surprisingly detailed riffs & hook-heavy flurries. It’s impossible to quite put into words just how intense it all is.

Sisyphus Lament builds on that with an even deeper & darker groove all while the vocals give off a desperate tone. This all leads to a thumping finale as Unbroken caps off a thrilling listen with its unbelievable punkish fury. The constantly shifting tempo really keeps things sounding fresh & it’s hard to really get to grips with such a slippery number.

Watch out for these guys, they’re coming for all of us!
