BLACK GOD: Three: 7”

Nov 13, 2013

This release is the third in a series of 7” singles that Kentucky “supergroup” Black God has released on No Idea. Conveniently titled Three, it allows a band made up from members of the likes of Coliseum, Black Cross, and Young Widows to knock out six tracks of mid-tempo punk rock based around some big riffs, pounding drums, and a dollop of intensity. Whilst not as immediate or as consistent as the second release in the series, this opens strongly with “Ghost in You,” although beyond that and “Rank and File” nothing else really gets me overly excited here. It’s not bad, but it’s some way from being as good as its immediate predecessor (I haven’t heard One so can’t compare Three to it).
