Debut 4 track 7" EP from Canadian Death Rockers PURITANS.

Brooding and angst ridden with outbursts of rage and disgust at times, this is both catchy, tuneful and a little unsettling. It definitely managed to catch my attention.
Excellent tone to the guitar and bass, they have that classic Death Rock sound, reminiscent of the American band POPULATION.
The addition of synths on the title track 'Autonomy' works nicely and gives it the mid-80's CURE / KILLING JOKE vibe.

A great debut that beats their demo for me, released by a great label, Fundamental Illness Records, who are putting out some amazing stuff in this vein and showcasing the modern day Death Rock scene.
