Nearly fifteen years into his music career, Frank Carter has dropped a new album with his punk rock outfit Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes. Their take on modern punk rock is memorable, and unique to the point that others are trying to sound like them!

Eschewing the low-fi sound of their punk forefathers, The Rattlesnakes utilize more modern production equipment and techniques that produce a more slick and higher quality sound, while retaining the attitude. “Crowbar”, for example, broods almost menacingly all the while sounding somewhat familiar. Frank continues to push his croon, which the throatiness lends an almost gritty feel to it.

Additionally, more pop influence is showcased on this album, almost to a point that it feels avant-garde. Perhaps this is the new direction we’ll be seeing them take? Only time will tell.

Final Thoughts

Interesting in the updates to the punk formula, while including more modern pop-sensibilities to the music and melody. An itneresting listen.
