10365458_554693254640331_1211431828597273715_oI can’t believe I’m writing this, but one of Ireland’s most exciting young thrash bands have called it a day! Twisted Autocracy are no more.  The band posted a message on their Facebook page last week confirming the split after just over a year of playing shows.

In their brief  time together, they appeared on nearly every thrash metal gig line-up going and released the excellent, Reinstate the Hate E.P. The band will be sorely missed and Tickets There would like to wish them all well in their future endeavours, especially Darrel Tanfin who has recently been confirmed as the newest member of Atominated.

Hi everyone, We have been quiet for a while now and it is unfortunate that we must break that silence with some pretty bad news.
As of last week we have decided to end Twisted Autocracy and call it a day. We have had an amazing time making this band what it is
but we feel it has just run it’s course and it’s time for us to move on. Although it is sad that it is ending we prefer to call it a day
with the four members that made Twisted Autocracy what it was. We are and always will be brothers and couldn’t be on better terms.
The memorys
(sic) we have shared both with each other and with every single person we have ever had the pleasure of playing to,conversed with at gigs,
played with on stage or generally just enjoyed the company of will stay with us for the rest of our lives. Seriously thank you so much to everyone
who made those memorys
(sic) something that will stay with us in our hearts forever. We had our first gig on the 4th of May 2013 and our last on the 26th of April,
So basically the guts of a year and what a year it was! We will not thank anyone in particular due to the dreadful fear that we would forget someone
because truly we are grateful to everyone who helped us! It was one hell of a time and we hope to see you all out there supporting the metal scene that was so kind to us!
We wish you all the best and one last final time,
Peace and Thrash \m/

Review: Twisted Autocracy – Reinstate the Hate (EP)

Posted in EP Review, Music with tags , , on May 1, 2014 by Tickets There

a2654034394_2We’ve been looking to this for about half a year and finally the time has come for Twisted Autocracy. Tickets There has an almost Axl Rose choreographed history with TA as we’ve managed to turn up late for all but one of the fourteen thousand times they’ve played nights we attended. However that one show, much like Snowblind last week, was enough. Not being major, major hardcore fans – there was a little awkwardness at first – but you can’t deny music of this quality and intensity.

Reinstate the Hate is the band’s debut EP and it’s five slices of savagely fast, obnoxious metal that pulls no punches. Could that have sounded any more cliché? Yes – the answer is yes it could. Seriously though – from the moment ‘A Worthless Place’ booms on the headphones it’s hard not to just listen to this EP over and over again. The E.P.’s title track, ‘Pretty Fucked Pretty Quick‘ and the excellent ‘Corporation Defecation’ are all presented with the same, fist pumping energy and give the listener the perfect introduction to their sound and the potential for future releases.

A great listen and highly recommended for all metal fans. Have a listen on the band’s official bandcamp page now.
