Gallows – Just Because You Sleep Next To Me

This is a sinister and scary song

With such a brilliantly threatening title you might expect the latest single from Watford hard rockers Gallows to be more than a little menacing.

And you’d be right. This is a sinister and scary song, right from the ferocious opening of warped guitars and staggering drums through to the chord-ripping vocals and revving rhythms. If this kind of ear-bleeding, unpleasant thrash metal was my cup of turpentine I would give this a double devil’s horn. However it’s not, and while I can appreciate its effective and decidedly thrilling aural assault, this is definitely only for the true metal connoisseur.
