“Every now and then you see/hear a band that you struggle to pigeonhole, Forward Russia, Gnod, bands that seem to have synthesised the component parts of rock in ways that are new to you or are constructing their art using slightly different resources. Somewhere near Housewives but with off kilter bits of phrasing and structure in the vocals that occasionally echoes Talking Heads Nottingham based The White Skull Death Snakes of Death are not, as their name may suggest, some obscure overblown 70s metal group but a 21st Century reimagining, reconstructing of punk.
Formed in the summer of 2013 when Anthony Thomas(vocals) and Mathew Thomas (bass) joined a pre existing duo of Gareth Winterman aka Winty (guitar) and Dom Goodbarn (drums) White Skull Death Snakes of Death had their first gig in December of the same year. It was late last year when I first came across them at a punk benefit gig when their set was an intense, mesmeric, wholly original shock to the system. So have they managed to reproduce that on this album?
The brief answer is ‘Completely!!’ Trying to stay as close to the live show as possible they recorded Reification Blues live with Phil Booth at JT Soar, an ex-warehouse now DIY and music space in Nottingham (1), with Mat the bassist mixing the album and Tiago Alexandre mastering it. The result is superb!

The White Skull Death Snakes of Death. It’s four guys who are old enough to know better and who sound like Mark E Smith fronting a heavy rock band – major riffage with angular lyrics on top while the rhythm section try to hold the whole thing together. It’s unique, totally unlike anything that I’ve seen before. Frontman Ant Thomas dances like a far younger man, although still a cross between Bez and your dad at a wedding. It’s only at the end of their set that they devolve into full blown heavy rock, screaming and all. – Gav Squires – LeftLion Magazine Nottingham

Hung Daddy laugh in the face of genres and describe themselves as the best worst band you’ll ever hear! Imagine if Deff Leopard joined the Mac Lads, this may be the likely result.
