The first single from New Jersey hardcore quintet SILENCE EQUALS DEATH and their End Times debut full-length is now playing at Decibel Magazine, as the record nears release via Eulogy Recordings.
The opening track to End Times, “Peacemaker” surges with the energetic flow fans can expect for the duration of the album, as SILENCE EQUALS DEATH merges classic hardcore styles with energy and finesse. Charged-up gang chants back the empowering lead vocals, while elements of prime youth crew energy charge straight into a bruising groove-fueled breakdown.
On “Peacemaker,” the band offers, “The song is about when you have exhausted your options and resort to aggressive actions.”
Decibel reports, “Most people have experienced a situation in life where it feels like the only option is to lash out at the negative forces that interfere with life. It’s a response that’s been integral to hardcore since the beginning, almost inseparable from the genre itself. New Jersey hardcore crew SILENCE EQUALS DEATH clearly know the feeling, judging from ‘Peacemaker,’ the first track from their upcoming End Times. The song takes hardcore punk’s high energy levels and fuses them with NYHC-esque choruses and call-and-response parts.”
