After a near fifty second intro that chants “execution”, Tirades gets right into the meat of their new EP Here Comes the Rain with the song Actions of Fear. From then on Tirades rolls on providing you with six total bone breaking punk infused hardcore. Each song including their cover of the Circuit song Your Element is heavy, in your face and as pissed off as you would imagine. These songs aren’t just anger without a purpose though as each song has its very own theme.
Actions of Fear deals with people-specifically politicians-caring more about themselves more than they care about others as well as letting fear and selfishness making decisions for us. Blind Obedience/Scared to Death speaks out about how we will do whatever our leaders and our idols say without questioning and following in the paths of others instead of blazing our own. No Drugs screams about living in denial and hatred fueled by next to nothing and the closer Here Comes the Rain speaks out about our war against nature and how nature will always come out on top. So, with all of that being said, this record isn’t misguided anger. Instead it is directed at numerous things and people including the entire population aiming to wake people up and have them realize that what is going on should not in fact be happening and that change is definitely due in the world.
Coupled with the outcry for change and the heavy and dense lyrics are the ultimately shredding tunes. Each song is a stomping hardcore and punk anthem that is in your face from the very beginning until you reach the final note. Throughout this release you will find yourself headbanging and snapping your neck every chance that you get. Each song attacks you from all sides making you listen and pay attention whether you wanted to or not. There is no denying Tirades and their in your face all out attack as their presence is very much known and felt all throughout Here Comes The Rain.
Overall, this release is a solid, heavy, neck cranking and memorable one. These songs are short and the replay value of this release is high and ultimately you will end up spinning this release more than you thought originally. This is a heavy EP that is sure to suck you in and get you headbanging within the first few minutes.
