Happy Birthday, Blossom!

Happy Birthday, Blossom!  2 years ago, the debut album of Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes was released.

I remember picking up the Rotten EP a bit before this came out.  I was ecstatic because Frank Carter was back and harder, similar to the British Punk sound that I fell in love with in Gallows.  Don’t get me wrong, Pure Love is very good in it’s own right, but this is what I wanted.  I had only three (four if you count Loss) songs to whet my appetite for what was to come in 3 months.  Then they did it.  They exceeded my expectations with this one.

I’ve listened to this album countless times and I would dare say it’s one of the most therapeutic ones to me in my collection.  In some of my most trying times, I can queue this one up and be centered.  I might be in trouble.  I might have lost everything and there’s just no hope.  Yeah, it’s fucking lonely.  Yeah, we all die, too.  However, I am unstoppable.  I am a burning star.  You are not a god.  You are useless and you are nothing to me.

Since I don’t have anything physical from Blossom (thanks digital age), swipe through for a few pics from when I saw these guys tear it up last April in Jacksonville.
