Review by Stephen Moss
Prison are from Seattle, describe themselves as Thrash/Punk/Doom and WOW, I could write an entire article on just how awesome the first track of this EP is. However, I’ll try to contain myself.
“Come, Annihilation.” starts off with a fantastic song! ‘Into The Pit’ and it is one of the best Punk songs I’ve heard in a long time. The very first time I listened to it, about 35 seconds into the song, I had to plug my phone into my drums and play along to the track. I have over 38,000 songs on my phone and ‘Into The Pit’ is now in my top 50 most played songs. Buy this song!
The Second song on the EP is called ‘Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Cares’ This is also a really good Punk song. After that, the songs become more average street punk songs. Nothing really stands out and the rest of the EP isn’t really memorable.
Even though the rest of the “Come, Annihilation.” didn’t hold up to the level of awesomeness of the first two songs, it is still a good EP. Not every release is full of smash hits!
What “Come, Annihilation.” does very well is show off the band’s potential. The band do such an amazing job on their first two tracks that I’m really excited to follow the band as they make new music.
If you’re a fan of street punk and bands like: Hot Snakes, The Casualties, The Unseen, S.T.U.N., and None More Black then you need to check out this EP.
Prison hit all the major points for a good punk band. The songs are short, fast, loud, catchy, angry, and make you want to mosh with your middle fingers raised in the air!
I’m genuinely excited to see what’s next for this band. Kudos to Prison for doing punk right!
