"Parisian filthy metallic hardcore act COWARDS returns with "Hoarder", the follow-up to 2012’s "Shooting Blanks And Pills". This new EP was recorded by producer Francis Caste (Kickback, Eibon, Arkhon Infaustus) at Sainte-Marthe Studio and illustrated by respected tattoo artist/ illustrator Jean-Luc Navette. Five new tracks of throat-ripping hardcore/ sludge, including a massive cover of 16 Horsepower's «Blessed Persistence»."

[THRT022] COWARDS | Shooting Blanks And Pills

June 30th 2012 · Throatruiner Records/Hellbound Records · 12"LP/CD/DIGITAL

"Gathering parisians with an already strong pedigree in dark and heavy music, COWARDS regurgitates gutter hardcore, unhealthy sludge/doom and nauseous black metal in "Shooting Blanks And Pills", their deeply raw and anxiogenic debut release. Only six months were needed to give birth to this full-length, monstrosity with a desperate urban feeling, bridge between the knife-in-the-heart crudeness of Eyehategod or Kickback and the majestic darkness of bands like Deathspell Omega or Thou. With a sound carrying smells of pissy streets and the dry blood you get for a sidelong glance, producer Francis Caste have perfectly catched the gist of these 38 minutes, recreating this forced apnea in a bile tank with a no frills approach. Cowards features current and ex-members of Sickbag, Death Mercedes, Hangman's Chair, Eibon, Glorior Belli, Dacast, Colossus of Destiny…"
