THE TRIBE ANOINTED
"Strong stuff – heavy, powerful, claustrophobic, a sound to drown in – full, dark, impressive old school brooding boiling angry full-bloodied drive from South London."
"Every message, about war and injustice, seems to be backed up by a pile driver forcing the ideas of MOA into your unwilling brain. I’ve got the scars to prove it, and am now a devoted follower of these Londoners."
Martijn Welzen - Mass Movement Magazine
One band I hoped would feature with more than one track is M.O.A. ‘Blood For Ever More’ is an excellent number which builds and builds, reminding me of Ritual or even something off The Membranes latest album. If the second album is released in this series then I do hope M.O.A. feature strongly.

THE TRIBE CONFIRMED
THE TRIBE BORN
At first sight March Of Anger may not seem as if they offer traditional Rock fare; their Punk based angst is more in the vein of KILLING JOKE. But if that grabs your interest, then there is a lot here you’ll find inviting. And listening carefully you’ll also see a lot more of the same power that makes bands like LOUD stand out.
You will find a lot of the same kind of atmosphere that made KILLING JOKE successful – the keyboards being used to great effect, the subtle crunch of a powerful guitar here and there and a strong vocal reminiscent of many of the bands whose roots lie in IGGY POP or THE STRANGLERS. But the tempo is never left to creep back as far as the traditional Punk area, and that’s where I personally find the freshness in this band’s sound. Take the track ‘The Breed’ as an example. A crusty bass intro leads into a volatile mix of guitar and power-packed rhythm, but the real feeling of the track spreads out from the centre with a subtle solo and that lovely bass sweeping in and out of the track like scraping barnacles on a barrier reef.
“Beautiful World” is subtle too, but has its rough edge, vocalist Jamie reminding us of the angst which is clearly relevant to the band, even when there’s a smooth keyboard choir singing powerfully behind Iain’s guitar, or the sharp drums of Matt enriches the lower regions of the excellent mix.
You know how it is when you sit in your armchair dying to see the band you’re listening to live, instead of just from speakers? Well, this is how I feel listening to this, I need my mind enriched by the swirling guitar in ‘The Path’; it draws you into the speakers, armchair and all. So follow your ears, get out and support a band that gives hate a new meaning. The MARCH OF ANGER be upon you!
