The Templars of Doom
Bring Me the Head of John the Baptist

(Independent, 2017)

Ulster County Celtic punk band the Templars of Doom have a rowdy sound that would surely appeal to fans of snarky stuff like Flogging Molly as well as old timers still bumpin' the Sex Pistols on a regular basis. They describe their sound as "1977 meets 1916" and combine traditional Irish folk thrown through a speed-punk blender. "Saint Patrick Saved Ireland" is a celebration of the title figure, and pretty good, if not my cup of tea as a Pagan metal-loving Welshman. The band are great at what they do, however. "Eyes" is a lovely ballad about a loved one's peepers. The chemistry is strong in these gritty, fun, bar-friendly songs. The band plays The Anchor in Kingston on March 10, the Wherehouse in Newburgh on March 16, and Denning's Point Distillery in Beacon on March 17.
