Apocalyptic Blues

Eater of Worlds…

It’s hard to have a peaceful state of mind when you are living in constant mental and physical warfare. Ever since I was a kid, music has always been that thing that has brought peace into my life while at the same time waking me up to whats going on around and beyond my world. I would not trade my teenage years as a peace punk for anything in the world, and I have said it before, in 1984 the lines between Positive Punk, Death Rock, Peace Punk and Post Punk almost did not exist. That’s why when I hear a band like Countdown to Armageddon, I get so fucking excited. This Seattle band released a super killer album in 2010 called Eater of Worlds, via Aborted Society Records, that combines the best of the aforementioned genres. Honestly, there is not one weak or insincere moment on this album. The audio and lyrical messages that this band creates on this album are fucking inspirational. The kind of music that this band creates gives me the energy to face anything negative that might come my way, plus it magnifies the positivity that is happening around me. With Eater of Worlds, Countdown to Armageddon made an album that has layer after layer of righteous emotion built into it, so that this record will age with you and never become dated. When I hear their songs, I get this intense feeling of doom from the dirgey bass lines and sound effects moving in and out of their songs. Then within the vocals of this band, you can hear how the vocalists are screaming for change, and in their anguish you can hear this vibe of hope. Countdown to Armageddon’s guitar work on this album is a voice unto itself, and on every song the notes that are being played draw you into the band’s minds eye. They have truly found a way to bridge the gap between anarcho-punk, crust and post punk, but on the real once your hear this record it goes far beyond any sort of label or barrier! Countdown to Armageddon are also killer song writers that know how to build planets of angst around a sun filled with lava hot melody. I know when you hear the intro to their tune “Eater of Worlds,” you will realize that the countdown is on!
