Templars & The new chords - Split Double 7'' (2010)
01. Templars - Down to the wire
02. Templars - Old days
03. Templars - Blood, sweat & tears
04. The new chords - Back home
05. The new chords - The templars (Templars cover)
06. The new chords - Antisocial today
Released by Randale Records in 2010.
A well nice packaging well worth any collectors hardearned dollars. Thick and nice cover split in the middle with 2 EP's (one for each band) that looks damn nice in the crate or on the bookshelf its just to bad the actuall musical content is a bit lacking.
Templars being one of my favourite US bands and The Veros (same members as The new chords) being one of my favourite French bands (atleast their demo's) i was a bit let down by the result of the split. These songs are way better than most other stuff released in 2010 but not at all as good as what the bands deliver otherwise. Templars do two good songs and it's nice to hear Down the wire which contains some of the Templars old sound but it still lacks something that made the old songs shine.
The new chords make a halfass contribute with the exception of their song Back home that i consider the best song on the split, to bad my crappy rip of the record dont really do it the honor it deserves.
A must have for collectors like me but nothing more than an ok EP for the rest.
