Lies is a band defined by what they aren't - you won't find any droning metal sounds, or gratuitous chugging on these records. The band plays brutal punk at high speeds, making their point and moving along. Members of Lies have established themselves in bands such as The Hope Conspiracy and Skin Like Iron, but these recordings abandon their previous nuanced approaches in favor of a brutal face-first dive into raging hardcore punk, heavily influenced by bands such as Sweden's Anti-Cimex, Skitsystem, and Wolfbrigade. Lies brings a chaotic, unregulated assault to upset you and rip your comfort away by slapping you in the face with minute long songs and heavy riffs played in a race against each other. Their newest offering Plague comes pressed as a one-sided 12" with killer B-side etching courtesy of Southern Lord Recordings.
