Mock Execution Circle of Madness

11th September 2023

7 Inch EP



Chicago’s Mock Execution are back with a relentlessly fierce five-track EP follow-up to last year’s debut full-length, Killed By Mock Execution.

A thunderous low-end rhythm section lays the band’s slab-like foundations, while dual flanged-out guitars unleash waves of burly, pugnacious metallic riffs.  Frantic, snarled vocals then interplay with at times psychedelic leaning melodic leads to powerful effect.  Lyrical themes range across the role of the mass media (Media Junkies), to the stultifying impact of the current political consensus (Defiant Pose), and how they feed rampant economic inequality (Space Invaders) fuelling bitter social conflict (Circle of Madness).
