BORN LION - Final Words LP
In just a few years the four fiercely independent gentleman know as Born Lion have clocked up some serious wins. They've earned serious triple j support in the form of a thrashing for "D For Danger" and "Good Times Jimmy," and a main stage spot on Sydney's 2013 Soundwave.
It reads like a rock'n'roll fairytale, and this is just the first chapter...
Engineered and produced by Dave Hammer (Die! Die! Die!, Thundamentals), the all new blinder 'Final Words' is the kind of reassuring sonic statement you want to hear from an acclaimed Australian act tackling their first full-length release. This 11-track beast expands on Born Lion's no-nonsense punk'n'roll roots to feature some truly spine-shattering, sludge-dipped riffs and even introspective acoustic moments.
A crowded vocal booth also sees members of Grenadiers and Gay Paris adding their rugged charm to a handful of the album's many monstrous vocal hooks. They've truly come out swinging with bold album opener "Break The Curse," featuring their biggest sing-along chorus to date; juxtaposed against a discordant verse and thundering outro.
