Death From Above - Outrage! Is Now

Death From Above are an unrelenting force.

Label: Last Gang Records/eOne
Released: 8th September 2017
Rating: ★★★★

Death From Above - minus the 1979, you might note - usually take much longer between records. Or at least, they did with the decade between their first and second albums. No such hanging about this time around, though, as they return with what’s for them a relatively speedy follow up.

In the time since they dropped 2014’s ‘The Physical World’ the dynamics of the world around them have changed. Not just in terms of the grander political plays, but sonically too. Two pieces that make a din are back in the game - both Royal Blood and Slaves have made their moves. Both owe much to DFA, but ‘Outrage! Is Now’ probably isn’t the album to send them kicking and screaming to those sort-of-mainstream heights.

That’s not because of a lack of quality - far from it. Death From Above are simply an unrelenting force. Uncompromising in their quest to make an unholy din. Dan Harrison
