Those grinding crusty punks of Conwy – Emissaries Of Syn have a new (old) release. They’ve issued bonus tracks previously unavailable on bandcamp.
Slate, as some of you will recall is a retake on their ‘hit’ The Slate Is Not Clean which is about the workforce at Penrhyn Castle (Bangor). In the late 19th Century they were virtually enslaved and paid in tokens that could only be spent at the castle’s chosen outlets. Here, the track has been cleverly doctored by Philadelphia’s Carl Kavorkian aka Manikineter to great effect.
The band looked closer to home for Ethics and requested that Bangor’s industrial waste master, Skinflick warped their live favourite The Only Way Is Ethics. Again, to great effect… It’ll blister your ears.
Emissaries Of Syn have a track or two coming out on compilation albums soon, and they have recently demoed new material with a threat of release to darken the coming months.
