Morning Glory - War Psalms (2014)

Morning Glorys third full-length is like a fist in the air; a rallying cry for the kind of revolution rock that New York punk scene vet Ezra Kire talks about in the albums second song, Standard Issue. As ambitious as the bands brand of spruced-up punk has been over the years, War Psalms is actually more of a straight-ahead album from the Manhattan band, Kire leaving the faux-hawk grandiosity of 2012s Poets Were My Heroes behind. Not to say that this is three-chord punk rockfar from itbut War Psalms benefits from a shorter running time (37 minutes) and a cohesive sound throughout.

Early songs like Natas Behind Me and I Am A Machine Gun sound like later-era Propagandhi and A Wilhelm Scream fed through a coarse, street-punk filter. Kires knack for unpredictable songwriting gives the album staying power without being too chaotic or all over the place. Rhythm-driven tracks like Nationality Anthem, which is basically a version of Green Days Holiday a crust punk would want to hear, sandwich nicely between the metal-tinged riffing of heavier numbers like I Want Control and the more melodic, piano-penned numbers such as Punx Not Dead, I Am. (In fact, Kires newfound love for tinkling the ivories is all over this album; even some of the songs that dont feature him playing piano were written on the instrument.) Know Your Wrongs, a five-minute-plus opus that opens with a heartstring-pulling piano run and Kires spit-laden, impassioned vocals, shows what Morning Glory are capable of: big, rambunctious rock songs with two feet firmly planted in the underground. Not many bands can pull off a song like this without sounding like goofballs.

While we hope the eponymous cry-out in War Dance is a tribute to fellow New Yorkers and thrash metal legends Anthrax, who made the same rousing declaration in their song Indians, its more likely that Kire has tapped deep into the same infectious energy that the notorious 90s mosh crew did. Because, after all, no matter what the style or genre of the music, its passion that drives its power, and War Psalms is brimming with it.
