Product Description

Product Description

This new hardcore metal group features Frank Turner on vocals, Ben Dawson on drums and Matt Nasir on guitar. Turner and Dawson are both former members of hardcore punk outfit Million Dead. Frank Turner is now best known for his solo folk-punk material, and Matt Nasir is part of his backing band, The Sleeping Souls. Lyrically, Möngöl Hörde is not as serious as Frank Turner's other projects, with Turner stating, "Lyrically it's very different from what I do now, it's kind of depraved. The first song we wrote is about Natalie Portman's tapeworm using her as a glove puppet to lead an uprising in Hollywood". PRAISE FOR MONGOL HORDE: “Frank Turner goes back to his roots…an absolute national treasure” - Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1 “Now, bow down to the Horde” - Kerrang! KKKK “Mongol Horde’s self-titled debut album is wicked” - Daniel P Carter, BBC Radio 1 Rock Show “[a] furious slab of cider-drenched Camden gutter thrash about Genghis Khan... Frontman Frank Turner, returning gleefully to his raging rock roots” - NME

I bought this album having never heard of Mongol Horde or any of their tracks before. I am so glad I did, this is easily the best album I have bought in the last 5 years. For me, Mongol Horde's music doesn't fit in any particular genre; to call it punk is to do it a disservice, but I guess it's the closest fit. Lyrically brilliant, with clashing guitar riffs and thunderous drums, one minute you feel like you are being assaulted, the next you are smiling at the lyrics as if you are at a comedy club.
Musically Mongol Horde are similar to Enter Shikari, and even that's not a fair comparison. When I listen to Enter Shikari it's like being lectured by a 6th form politics student who has read the text book but has none of the life experience. Mongol Horde are the musical equivalent of a war veteran with the 1000 yard stare - they've been there, done it, and have the force to back it up.
It's beautifully angry, intelligent and irreverent, uncomfortable and proud of it. I love it.

A brilliant debut album. I am still getting acquainted with the songs but my first, second, third, and many more, impressions are of a band that is storming the hardcore punk scene by simply being very talented at what they do. As always, Frank Turner has written lyrics that are thought-provoking, funny and, as expected, somewhat angry. Matt Nazir also shines just by being amazing at just about any instrument that you throw at him. If Frank's other projects are anything to go by, I cannot wait to see these guys live. Their sound is reminicent of Million Dead (for obvious reasons what with Frank Turner screaming his lungs out and Ben Dawson trying to beat his drums to death) but I think the whole album is more well crafted and fine tuned - perhaps a result of 10+ more years of songwriting practice.
Personal favourites so far include 'Staff To The Refund Counter', 'Weak Handshake' and 'Blistering Blue Barnacles', though 'Make Way' feels necessary before any Mongol Horde listening. I have ordered the vinyl and I can't wait to drive my friends crazy.

This debut album is everything you expect from from a punchy hardcore album but even more so. The thick baritone riffage along with the raw face ripping screams from Frank make this a great listen. I give this album 5/5 because every time I listen to it, I wish I wrote it instead.

I thought I'd HATE this...I'm not really a punk or hardcore type person.

I was wrong. It's brilliant.

If you go through periods of despising every living thing on Earth [and I do] this will help.

The lyrics to 'Staff to the Refund Counter' should be carved in granite, and placed in a prominent location.

To say Mongol Horde is a "side project" (that sadly has been put back into its box for the time being) this album shames many others who do "this" full time. The recording is crisp and crystal clear, with delicate cymbal and brushwork easily discernible. And then the guitars. Oh my god, those guitars! Punchy riffs, looped sequences, the lot. Kind of reminds me of early RATM - basic tunes cranked up to 11 played with authority and craft and aggression and arrogance. "Hey Judas" is my favourite. A half spoken, half growled tale of Keith Richards being a T-1000 model terminator. Wonderful. Missed them on tour in 2014 so looking forward to them opening the box again soon. Well done Frank, Ben and Matt.

Absolutely love this album. Reeks of punk and metal, with hard hitting honest and always beautiful lyrics from Frank. Seen them play at the King Tuts and oh my god, these guys are incredible

Amazing album with some of the best songs that frank turner has put his name to. A lot of tongue in cheek lyrics that bring a smile to your face while banging your head to the tunes.
