Lay It On The Line - Positive Views
Lay It On The Line are a melodic hardcore punk band from South London. Forming in 2012 their current line up features Duncan Ash (bass), Jakub Jalowiec (guitar), James Eaton-Brown (drums), Alice Hour (vocals) and Mike Scott (vocals/guitar). Mike is also a member of Phinius Gage and In Evil Hour whilst Alice also fronts In Evil Hour.
With influences such as Pennywise & Consumed plus Slayer & Dio it's easy to see why their sound is a mix of hard hitting punk tunes with heavier riffs and pounding drums. Releases include 2012's demo album Midnight In The Ballagio plus several eps and a split 7" with Arizona. You can check them out here : https://layitontheline.bandcamp.com/
Late last year they released their debut album, The Black Museum, on Disconnect Disconnect Records and you can find it here : https://disconnectdisconnectrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-black-museum
They embark on a mini tour later this month and you can find details here : https://www.facebook.com/layitontheline/
The song you'll find below is a cover of a demo by Californian band Rotting Out (check the original version out here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4k6sE7bsdBo).
Duelling male and female vocals compliment a brutal back beat, this is Positive Views....
