Confessions of a Traitor – Illuminate

Overall this is a great record! The tracks are all individually brilliant and it is hard to find a weakness in this EP (well maybe the fact that it’s too short! But hey, it would be an album if it was any longer – hint hint guys!) I have a feeling this will transfer over really well live!

High Rise – Left It For Everything (LIFE)

I almost stopped writing this review as soon as I started. The temptation to start a pit in my room is too strong! The opening bars of Hands Untied sets the tone of the album, very heavy with some monster guitars and pounding drum/bass combo. The combination of harsh screams and smooth cleans mix well.
