Thrash Hits Presents: History Of The Hawk + Throne + Cult Cinema + Empress
History of the Hawk crawled out of their Stourbridge microcosm circa April 2011. Surviving on a diet of DIY gigs, the band thrived on the expanding punk community in their native Midlands, bursting onto the scene with own take on hardcore.
History of the Hawk sidestep the cliché of modern hardcore culture offering an honest and direct musical response.

Soothing and vicious in turn, Empress juxtapose gentle harmonies with frantic ferocity; relaxed strumming followed by thrashy beats, time signature changes and other interesting meanderings.
There are as many elements of metallers Mastodon, Metallica and Opeth in the music as there are of the more melodic Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Elbow.
However, the four piece band also cites more recent but no less prominent influences such as the now-defunct Surrey rockers Reuben and American post-hardcore pioneers Underoath and Thrice.
