Who is Frank Carter? To many, he's the raucous, bloodied, frenzied frontman of Gallows' early days. To others he's Grey Britain's vitriolic voice of a disillusioned country.
Is he the upbeat, He could be the upbeat, radio-rock loving man who stepped away from hardcore and wrote the Pure Love album, or the over-the-top Londoner who returned with his band, the Rattlesnakes, to record their debut record Blossom?
Frank Carter is punk rock. Impossible to second guess, Modern Ruin is something that melds a little from every point in his career. It's clear from Carter's croon in Bluebelle that we're not in Orchestra of Wolves any more, while the misty, fuzzy Lullaby could have sat alongside Beach of Diamonds or The Handsome Devil Club on Pure Love's album.

Frank Carter is with some ease the most iconic figure of the current UK punk scene. It’s really hard to think of anyone else who’s come close. Initially making a name for himself as the frontman of Gallows in the mid-noughties, Carter’s chaotic stage presence, sinister vocal delivery and lyrics addressing the state of the nation, helped elevate Gallows to be considered a Black Flag or a Sex Pistols for a new generation, a band that united misfits through punk. If you were a punk or hardcore kid around that time, chances are it was because of Gallows.
Carter however, went on to leave Gallows due to creative differences and formed the much more melodic Pure Love, whose shows would still feature antics from Carter. Surprisingly though, Carter had yet another crack at reinvention last year with his latest outfit Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes which saw Carter return to ferocious music akin to Gallows, but carry the rock scope of Pure Love and remain a live force to be reckoned with.
With their debut full length ‘Blossom’ going to no. 18 in the UK album charts, sophomore release ‘Modern Ruin’ on its way in January and most of his current tour being sold out, Frank Carter seems unstoppable at the moment. We were lucky enough to sit down with Carter before his show at The Key Club in Leeds, where he was happy to talk about his legendary shows, ‘Modern Ruin’ and why he feels stronger than ever.

You know things are going to get crazy tonight when Frank Carter's got his name to it. First being introduced to the world through UK punk/hardcore heavyweights Gallows, who were considered one of the most dangerous bands on the planet when Carter was fronting them in how frantic he would get onstage (and offstage) being a frenzy of stage diving, architecture climbing and crowd involvement.
Leaving Gallows in 2011 for the more melodic and rock orientated Pure Love, shows with that band would still get wild despite the music being much more at ease. However, Carter abandoned Pure Love and went on to return to aggressive music last year with his new band Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes. Their debut album 'Blossom' featured much of the pummelling that made Gallows so beloved by punks everywhere, yet featured a layer of melodic-sensibility that Carter developed in Pure Love. Tonight, The Rattlesnakes hit Leeds' sold-out Key Club to solidify Carter's reputation as one of the liveliest performers you can see today.
However, before Carter demolishes The Key Club, Thee MVPs display what they have to offer and that's straight up, uppercut punk which harkens back to the likes of the Ramones and The Buzzcocks with driving, garage riffs and fun, loose and free vocals.
