Phinius Gage’s second album is furious and full on punk rock with a melodic heart. Think the heavy duty metal tinged riffs of Comeback Kid meets the melody driven tunes of Taking Back Sunday…if such a fusion is possible. They bring to mind The Bronx at times; that kind of melodic old school punk that’s as much about good solid catchy tunes as it is about frantic, angry riffs and drumming.



They go all out for much of the album, opener ‘Battered and Bruised’ leads the charge and is full of punchy staccato drumming and vocals interwoven with a sing along chorus and a really hook laden tune; it’s the kind of track that makes you want to get on your feet and punch the air. They continue this formula throughout the album, but it never becomes boring or stale because they add enough flourishes to keep you on your toes: metal edged riffs on tracks like ‘Seek Out Your Foes’ add texture, varied vocals and gang choruses add energy, and the occasional quiet and thoughtful moment like ‘Provocation Song’ reigns things back in enough to let you have a breather.



It’s really good to hear a British band producing punk of this quality without resorting to gimmicks or American accents to sell, just relying on their music, which in this case is excellent. Being able to get to the end of an album and still having a tune as uplifting and full of energy as ‘My Eyes Bled Colours’ waiting for you is rare, but this lot seem to manage it with ease. It’s hard to imagine them not doing great things. Highly recommended.

Dealing in a brand of melodic hardcore with broad hints of skate punk that are usually far more associated with the So-Cal scene rather than that of the south of England, thanks in no small part to Seek Out Your Foes, all signs point to Phinius Gage taking on the Americans at their own game and coming out on top. With 400 shows already in their locker since their inception back in 2003, the hardworking Brighton-based quartet have long since made a name for themselves on the UK underground scene.

'Battered And Bruised' launches out of the blocks with trademark breakneck speed, with its frantic drums guiding the listener along to its killer sing along chorus, and in the process encapsulates everything Phinius Gage are all about. Granted, they may not exactly be covering new territory, but rarely are the worlds of catchy skate punk melodies and hardcore married so well. Elsewhere, 'Mary F**king Kelly' speeds along at 100mph before stopping to a standstill to let its towering chorus make an appearance, 'Behind Darkness You've No Light' forgoes such subtleties as it joyously bounds along relentlessly until the glorious gang vocals of 'My Eyes Bled Colours' bring things to a close in consummate fashion.

Hardcore may well have stagnated somewhat over the past few years, scene infighting, posturing and name calling may have come to the forefront, but with its unwavering quality from start to finish, Seek Out Your Foes ensures that Phinius Gage are one band that purists will most definitely hold dear to their hearts.

We rate this: 7 out of 10

For some reason I was expecting this to be bad poppy ska punk. Fortunately I was pretty far off the mark there.

Brighton’s Phinius Gage plays fast, passionate punk rock, very much in the vein of Rise Against before they went horribly wrong, but with a definite English edge. If you liked the first two and a half Rise Against albums you can pretty much stop reading now and go buy this, ’cos you’re pretty much guaranteed to like it.

Still here? Good. Phinius Gage has their roots firmly in the thrash and hardcore of the early 80s with breakneck drumming and chunky metal inspired riffs, but they blend it with a pop sensibility and melody all too often lacking in hardcore bands. The vocals sit somewhere between full on shouting and pop singing and possess a touch of grit reminiscent of the mighty Leatherface. There are plenty of sing-a-long gang choruses too.

Production wise again it’s just right. Unlike the later Rise Against albums, which were far too slick and clean to be effective, Seek Out Your Foes is well produced, but not overproduced. Everything sits comfortably in the mix, but it lacks that layer of polish often evident on major label releases, which, in my opinion makes it a far better album. There’s still a hint of DIY, a touch of the live there, and it brings the music to the fore and makes the whole album just a touch more urgent and vital.

It’s not all good though. The Rise Against influence is just a bit too evident in places, forcing direct comparison, and it’s not entirely in Phinius Gage’s favour. Although Seek Out Your Foes easily eclipses Rise Against’s disappointing recent efforts, the song writing isn’t quite up to the standards of Revolutions Per Minute, Rise Against’s finest moment. Ade Maverick’s voice isn’t quite up to the same standard either, although to be fair Rise Against does have an exceptionally good vocalist. Some of the more metal interludes (There are a few 80’s style solos) feel a little forced, although they are on the whole mercifully short. The lyrics are rather clumsy in places, although not especially so for a punk rock band, and the sentiments are on the whole admirable.

None of this detracts from the fact that Seek Out Your Foes is an excellent album in its own right; however, it just suffers a little in comparison. I’d recommend having a listen.

et encore une dernière pour aujourd'hui...

BIG CHEESE magazine:

"Having hit the UK scene four years ago with their debut album 'The Feeling Something's Wrong', the quartet have matured and this new album sees them on top of their game. With more power than ever, the 'Gage have almost captured the power of their fantastic live show. Taking the SoCal skate punk sound and grounding it with Ade Maverick's refreshingly British vocals, this is UK skate punk at it's best. The blazing title track, with its great little guitar solo at the end, and the darker melodic 'Lead Us Into Temptation' show a much needed change of pace. This is a great record that shows that the UK can do skate punk just as well as the Americans, and you don't have to have haircuts and screamo sound in '07. They'll make their foes and doubters sorry with this belter! 4/5"
