Debut Album – “DIE YOUNG” //Kerrang (KKKK)
Wounds have delivered one of the most intense debut albums of the year. This sounds like your heart bursting.
This is the soundtrack to the most apocalyptic party known to man, played with the energy of the Stooges, the danger of the Murder Junkies and interlaced with the slick gothic swagger of the Sisters Of Mercy: Wounds are a real force to be reckoned with.
Big Cheese (4/5)
There is a grievous heart pumping adrenalin around the ten tracks here and ultimately aids Wounds to being so much more than just anger, it’s channelled with a purpose and finesse that makes for captivating listening.
Hit The Floor (9/10)
It’s safe to say that Wounds are almost certainly better than your band, your friends band and the majority of the other bands that you will undoubtedly claim to be a fan of.
Ourzone Magazine (9/10)
Hooked even from the first song, Wounds have set the standards high with a belter of an album. Die Young is a fantastic debut full-length and it’ll be a crime if Wounds don’t get recognised for their incredibly admirable talents.
Die Young’ has all the balls you’d ever want from a rising band, and everything here screams hunger and passion. Wounds have a bright future, and despite a few minor flaws, ‘Die Young’ sets them on a fine path.
Wounds have finally arrived at their debut album and are raging. At what is unclear but you suspect it’s pretty much anything that we’ve got. Die Young is a record seething with anger and resentment and, if it’s not particularly original, is still an enthralling racket.
Powerplay Magazine (9/10)
An acute, diligent and earnest debut from a band that may be set to self-destruct, Wounds offer one of the most honest sounds running the hardcore circuit.
As with their explosive live shows, the resulting album is a testimony to a band hungry and determined to live life to the fullest, with an in-your-face punk’n’roll hardcore sound is honest and refreshing, and references everything from the classic garage sound of The Stooges through to the modern fuck-you attitude of the likes of Cancer Bats.
After 8pm strictly over 18′s, I.D. may be required.
