Forever In Debt – ‘Forget Me Knot’ E.P. Review

Widnes noise rock trio Forever in Debt released their sophomore E.P ‘Forget Me Knot’ on Sunday, April 22nd 2018 via Society of Losers Records. It’ released as a CD, hand packed and sealed at Society Of Losers HQ as well as digitally across Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp ans all major streaming services.

Widnes noise rocl trio, “Considering the fucking miserable nature of it all and the fact that I’m pretty sure we each shaved a few years away from our hearing making ‘Forget Me Knot’ we’re really happy with it.” – Craig Twigg, Vocals, Guitar

As soon as ‘Without A Sense Of Summer’ kicks in I’m transported straight back to the 1990’s classic album ‘Insecticide’ by Nirvana. This is brilliant stuff. The opening riff is an absolute killer but what I like about this song is that it’s grunge but in a lazy way. Craig’s lyrics are just sublime, not too angry, almost in a ‘not too bothered’ way and it works a treat. What a great opening track. 

‘Rabbit Hole’ is Pumpkins all over. Craig has matched Billy Corgan’s sound here to a tee. I love it. Theres’ so much going on in this song it keeps you mesmerized.

Just when you think things can’t get any better, ‘Billy’ kicks in. An anthem of noise, calm, anger all rolled into one. There’s some nice solo work in this track, hugely inspired by the Smashing Pumpkins and these guys match anything the Pumpkins can do easily.

Unfortunately, ‘Chewing Bees’ is the last track which comes too soon for me as I’ve really enjoyed this EP. It starts with a melee of anger but soon calms down into a quite-ish verse. Soon followed by a manic chorus. It’s only fair that the production team get a mention here too, as the Engineer has managed to mix a great clear sound but also keep the dirty Nirvana-esque noise that we all love. I’ve got to catch these guys live.

Score 10/10
