Top Customer Reviews
Grey Britain is not just a collection of songs like the previous album, but a work of art to be taken altogether. It's a portrait of a decaying modern Britain that many listeners will recognise. It's difficult to describe how immense this record sounds and I'm not goin to attempt it, but it's a world away from their debut. Yes it's still aggressive metal tinged hardcore punk, but it's far more focused, heavier, angrier and the use of classical elements is sublime.
For all it's nihilism it actually fills a long-vacant niche in mainstream music as a record that feels like it actually matters, and as such, perhaps by accident, leaves you (or at least me) with the naive thought that maybe society can be redeemed somehow if enough people wake up. Just don't ask me how that would work in reality.
Either way it's a powerful record that simply must be heard.
and this is just what this cd "grey britain" is,, its about being pissed off!
The recession has hit britain and frank carter and the boys are truly angry and pissed off with the way britain as become, you can tell this as the album gets bleaker and more angrier and somewhat darker(or greyer as they put it) as the album goes on.
Having only been a fan originally of their singles, i went back and listen to the First album in full and now this and im still not dissapointed
Standout tracks are:
London Is The Reason
The Great Forgiver
If you like heavy music, buy this album. Now.
The album has 13 tracks with many memorable parts, an album that proves that Punk isn't dead. I recommend this album to anybody with a full or even slight interest in hardcore / punk. 95/100
It was released through Warner Brothers, who gave the band a substantial budget which allowed them to hire an orchestra, and despite now being beholden to a major label, Gallows somehow managed to turn in something nastier, more artistically relevant and furiously biting than anyone could want or expect. It was produced by Garth Richardson (of Biffy Clyro, Rise Against, Mudvayne, Sick Of It All and Testament fame) and featured guest appearances from Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil and Black Hole's Richard Carter.
The album, in terms of quality, is an absolute gem. The combination of monster riffs, savage and politically astute lyrics, passionate energetic performances and the great deal of variety and clever ideas make this album feel like an absolute classic.
Everything; from the crushing sludgy intro "The Riverbank," to the catchy "The Vulture" and the almost Mastodon-esque album closer "Crucifucks" this album is excellent. Pianos and string sections mix with Metalcore influenced breakdowns, ragged Hardcore power and some of the best lyrics going. Its all absolute gold. There is no filler, no weak moments and an absolute feast of memorable moments. Moments like the `beat by beat as the blows reign down' section in "Death Voices" or the ending to the anti-Knife Crime anthem "Queensbury Rules" are utterly unforgettable and really connect on a raw, gut level. When Frank venomously spits out the lyrics to "Misery" you practically fear for his life.Read more ›

this album is the next most important punk album to be wrote alongside the bollocks.
Brutally honest.brutally beautiful.
Get it.live it and love it.
That is all!
The last Gallows record with Frank Carter as the lead singer. The songs on this record beautifully reflects the title "Grey Britain". Read morePublished on 12 Feb. 2013 by Albert Chang
Gallows are a great band, Staring at the rude boys from the previous cd was a stand out track, worthy of much more success in the mainstream chart than it recieved. Read morePublished on 12 July 2009 by K. Staddon
