Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes
Having found himself at a creative impasse, Carter left Gallows after two era-defining albums, Orchestra of Wolves in 2006 and 2009’s Grey Britain, to embark on a new project, Pure Love. While Pure Love’s muscular melodic rock wasn’t a complete volte-face artistically, he found people weren’t ready to accept quite as sudden a change of direction from a performer who had been such an intrinsic part of the hardcore landscape. “I was really surprised at the amount of people that just couldn’t accept it,” he recalls. “It was such a shock to these people that they just could not digest it. They couldn’t even understand what happened, because to them, I am aggression, that’s all I was. So that 90 degree turn was a bit too abrupt. It’s like if you’ve got a car that’s going 100 miles an hour and you try and make a hairpin turn: you’re going to struggle.
