Boomkat Product Review:
Taking cues from bands like Fugazi, The Melvins and a host of other post-hardcore, pre-grunge behemoths Young Widows make an authoritative riff-born racket. The Kentuckian band formed from the remnants of Breather Resist after vocalist Steve Sidoni left the band. Guitarist Evan Patterson stepped up to the mic for vocal duties, and so a name change to commemorate the personnel shift paved the way for Young Widows as we know them now. Old Wounds combines the roughness of rehearsal room recordings with the unadulterated rawness of live concert performances, though this always feels like a proper album, thanks to the skills of engineer Kurt Ballou, who takes these different recording environments but preserves a high fidelity feel, and most importantly a consistency from track to track. In amongst the more blistering cuts, 'The Guitar' is a particular highlight, taking up a brilliant minimalist chug accompanied by unusual, occasionally harmonised vocals, with no beat necessary to provide the sense of caustic tension hanging in the air throughout its taut sub-three-minute duration.
