tmorgangrowden This release is very gripping and unique. The triple vocal attack provides such sick contrast while also allowing for tons of interesting vocal patterns and combinations. The riffs are catchy and refreshing, the production couldn’t be much better, and the band is thematically intriguing to say the least. The bass is very audible and the drumming is spot on as well. All of this being said, I am totally head over heels for this demo and thrilled to see what Phalanx come up with next.
Favorite track: Vercingetorix.

Claydonious This EP is just so damn heavy and I love the history aspect. It’s perfect for a history buff who loves metal and hardcore and punk and all that good stuff. The Keri’s vocals are fantastic and I loves lordspew’s guitar and his vocals as well. Phalanx has honestly become one of my go to’s when I need a pick me up. If these dudes put something out I will buy it without hesitation. And btw look into these guys other projects and art cuz Sean never disappoints. Favorite track: Pyrrhic Victory.

Track Name: Phalanx
Form ranks
Phalanx
Track Name: Pyrrhic Victory
Waste Deep
Wading
Through a swamp of your conquest
Through the dregs of your carnage

This victory
Has awarded freedom to thee
Walk anywhere you please
Tragedy
Trudging tired legs that bleed
Through bodies
Piled up high for crows to feed

This consequence
Thirst for blood now quenched
No recompense
Your nostrils fill with moldered stench
Jaws clenched
Familiar faces gaze up from the trench
No defence
Their blood is guilt and you are drenched

Pyrrhic victory
Cannot see through this fog of war
Pyrrhic victory
Achievement negated by this heavy toll
Track Name: Boudicca
Divination
Victory

Scourged body
Scarred children
Take up arms
Temples crumble

Escape to Gaul
Outnumbered battle
Island soaked in blood
Abdicate Londinium
Surrender the weak
Cut down by insurgents

Abscond the wrath
Warrior queen
Track Name: Hannibal
I will use fire and steel
To arrest the destiny of Rome

Into the alps
Warpath of ice
Vengeance passed down
On the back of an elephant

Cannae
Catastrophe
Humiliation
Foreign invasion

Hesitation
Defeat
Halted
Retreat

Turncoat
Fugitive
Try to flee
The imperial reach

Reduced to an advisor
In exile survival
I will use fire and steel
To arrest the destiny of Rome
Track Name: Vercingetorix
Over mountains
Legions march
Suppress insurrection
Trail of scorched earth

Seize Vercingetorix
Demonstrate dominance
Suppress insurrection
Trail of scorched earth

Hunted down
Nowhere to run
Besieged behind stone walls
Thousands starve
Incendiary
Brought to a knee
An act of surrender
The martyr dragged back in chains

Paraded through
The streets of the capital
A message to all
Publicly strangled

Vigilance
Destroy
Decapitate
All
Track Name: Varian Disaster
Ambushed betrayed
Mired in the dense forest

Surrounded
Javelins pierce flesh

No escape
None are spared

Surrounded
Javelins pierce flesh

No escape
Varus falls upon his sword 20,000 left to die

The sun sets on this epoch
This time of subjugation ends
