history of the hawk Future Ruins (CD, £11.50)label: In At the Deep End
History of the Hawk are one of the most exciting bands to emerge from the UK heavy music scene in the last few years. The band has enough hooks to please the majority and leftfield enough to gain respect in the UK DIY underground. "HOTH" return with their debut album Future Ruins on In At The Deep End Records. Recorded by Jason Sanderson (65 Days of Static, Rolo Tomassi, Brontide, The Plight, etc) and mastered by Alan Douches (Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan, Baroness, Norma Jean, Every Time I Die, Black Breath, etc) Future Ruins is a statement of intent aimed at the music scene documenting the bands distain for how a country is ran, social fashions, freedom of speech and discrimination, not personal aggression which may be perceived to the listener. Everything from excellent press, a headline tour of Europe, being hailed as one of the hottest newcomers in the UK by Rock Sound Magazine, getting airplay of major radio including Kerrang and the BBC to storming the digital charts and hitting number five on Amazon, all off the back off the back of a DIY recorded EP called OCEAN. This has built up to the day of Monday 12th November when Future Ruins is released on CD and digitally. Taking influences from Fugazi, Neurosis, Drive Like Jehu, Converge to Arab on Radar, the band mix an eclectic sound to produce an organic sound that is truly their own and is showcased over the 15 tracks. History of the Hawk have a genuine approach to music, this is not about preaching or trying to change the world, it's just five people venting opinions. Future Ruins is a defiant stand on the identity of current British music and looks push the boundaries of a countries crumbling ideological of punk rock is perceived.
