Top 50 of 2012: No.30: Your Demise - The Golden Age (Visible Noise)

Another band on this lists last full album release, and this time it’s even worse because Your Demise have created a monster of an album, which is quite sickening that their last album has so much shit from some so called fans, sure there’s elements of skatepunk but this is still a punkrock monster of an album. Kicking off with the ferocious title track ‘The Golden Age’ with it’s statement of intent, “This Is Your Demise 2012 Bitch” and even second track which gave them so much flak ‘These Lights’ in one hell of a catchy song, which apparently Your Demise aren’t allowed to write. So you can listen to this album with your judgemental scenester head on, or you can slam it on and enjoy it for what it is, a great punkrock record with a shit ton of energy and some catchiness here and there, and if you don’t like it, go find another band that plays exactly the same music for every single album. I don’t know if some ‘fans’ attitudes contributed to the demise of Your Demise but if they did, they should be ashamed because the UK has lost another awesome band who weren’t afraid to be themselves.
