Format: Audio CD
Look out kids, the bogey man's coming to get you. His name's Evan Patterson, and while his axe is of a more figurative kind it's every bit as vicious as those used to chop wood and dismember nosey children who ask too many questions. It's an axe he uses to make noises; not happy noises, like laughing or the theme tune to News at Ten, but vile, evil noises that bear a stronger relation to the howls of mutant cyborg satanic werewolves than to traditional musical instruments. It sounds positively sick, chemically volatile even, and it brings `Old Wounds,' the Young Widows' second album, to grizzly life, like the undead reanimation of a corpse.

To speak in terms more readily understood, the sound of Young Widows is dark, bluesy, swampy, sociopathic, alienated, violent and often disturbing. With a trebly, metallic guitar that's been psychotically overdosed on tremolo, reverb, echo and goodness knows what other monstrous effects, the band play a hi-octane breed of rock that fits somewhere in the forbidden meeting zone of post-punk, noise rock, metal, no-wave and blues rock. On `Old Wounds' they deliver 11 tracks that veer all the way from drunken, stupefied swagger (`The Heat Is Here') to hallucinatory murder frenzy (`Delay Your Pressure'), exacting quite an impressive range of moods, phrases and structures for a band whose bottom line is route-one self-destruction.

Indeed; if anything, `Old Wounds' is an album of subtle depth and variation, of a complexity and thoughtfulness that self-effacingly hides behind and tries to numb itself with hot-blooded brutality.

This band sound like a cross between Shellac, Jesus Lizard and Fugazi but with cleaner vocals. However it doesn't sound derivative and Young Widows put their own twist on the sound. Deep grungy bass, heavy as hell drums and intersting guitar sounds (sounding like the Edge at times - but in a good way!), well worth checking out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Young Widows are what heavy music needs. 27 Sept. 2008
By nurnberger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow, band that is heavy without some guy screaming like an impaled pig. How novel. Current trends in metal and hardcore are so fixated on blastbeats and recycled ideas from the 80's. Young widows take some of best qualities of heavy music from the nineties and offer a brilliant take on noisy, relentlessly heavy rock. If you are sick of all the metal and hardcore schlock out there at the moment this is a breath of fresh air. Buy it!
4.0 out of 5 stars Jesus Lizard-esque rock 22 April 2009
By W. P. Melton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The title sums up my first impressions of this record, it sounds a lot like latter-day Jesus Lizard. Also; it's heavy. If you dig JL or bands like you'd find on AmRep, Young Widows are worth checking out.

This is a solid 4-star album, its a little short (>30 min.) definitely better than Breather Resist (in my opinion). I do think these guys have a great album in them and I'm hoping the next one will be it. In the meantime: see them live!
5.0 out of 5 stars Kicks Ass 27 Feb. 2013

Heavy. Unique. Rocks hard. If you're after something new... buy it. You'll like it. Best album of the three that this band has put out.
