Fistful Of Lies is the debut EP from Belgium bruisers Wall Of Lies and finds the quartet suitably pissed off and ready to unleash their groove-heavy hardcore on the world!
Screaming for the voiceless, Wall Of Lies have their eyes wide open and are ready to fight for the downtrodden and the abused. Frontman Maune’s heavily accented vocals border on a harsh spoken word style with the occasional scream cutting through the muddy mix but there’s no denying the anger in his tones and anger is at the very heart of Fistful Of Lies.
Fired up and ready for the fight, the likes of “The Price Of Life” are quick-fire bursts of semi-melodic hardcore, rumbing their way though thunderous grooves and fierce rhetoric as they seek to stand up and protest against racism, sexism, homophobia and intolerance of any kind.
With a sound that combines the foundations of Glassjaw and Throwdown, Wall Of Lies may not be in the same league (yet) but they certainly sound like they have the passion to be in this for the long haul. A proper D.I.Y affair, Wall Of Lies may be in their infancy – and the occasional one dimensional nature of their compositions make this fact pretty obvious – but they do pack a fearsome punch. 6/10
