PREYING HANDS: Through The Dark 12" $8.00
Released by: Inimical
From the ashes of the Canadian band, BALLAST, comes PREYING HANDS, taking the next logical step for what could be said to be the third BALLAST LP. The sound has congealed to overtly melodic while still keeping the rawness and raging feel of a hardcore punk band. I hear all kinds of great influences, from Post Regiment to The Avengers to Propagandhi. Nice guitar arrangements with smart drumming that only adds to the ambiance of this record. Spoke's vocals have also taken a great step forward on this release. Great album, can't wait to see what they do next.
I just had the privilege of spending 3 days with these fine folk, really great band to see live, don't miss out, if you get the chance.
