[THRT021] BIRDS IN ROW | Collected
April 15th 2012 · Throatruiner Records/Vitriol Records · 12"LP/DIGITAL
"Since its beginning in 2009, BIRDS IN ROW plays punk/hardcore in its purest form, visceral, uncompromising and emotional. Collected is, as its name suggests, the reunion of the Rise Of The Phoenix 7" and the Cottbus 12"EP, plus "Phoenix", the very first song ever written by the band. Three years, 250 shows, six european tours, a two-months US one and a signing on Deathwish Inc later, the three-piece from Laval has gained a strong following, becoming one of the most intense and impressive live acts around these days."
[THRT008] BIRDS IN ROW | Cottbus
February 28th 2011 · Throatruiner Records/Vitriol/Swarm Of Nails · 12"EP/DIGITAL
"Cottbus bulldozes over you without looking back. Seven songs go by and your speakers are left drenched in sweat. The production is huge. The guitar tone is warm, the drums sound organic and the vocals are distorted. Still there's such an oomph to this whole affair that immediately - even though tempting - comparisons with impressive European "screamo" acts feel uncalled for. So I won't go there. But keep it mind. Cottbus applies pressure on you. The only respites from all the rage is the intro-like "Among The Ashes" and "Outro". Everything else booms and crashes in a heartfelt and beautiful fashion." (Halifax Collect)
