US metallers Cane Hill have returned with their second album Too Far Gone. The record, is released as the band are currently touring the UK and Europe as support for Motionless In White. The highly anticipated follow-up to 2016’s Smile debut promises to be heavier and darker than it’s predecessor.
Opening with Too Far Gone, you’re hit with a monstrous instrumental that continues throughout. Frontman Elijah Witt has described the track as being a look into the band’s LSD trips and calling out hypocrites. Lord Of Flies takes a more hard rock feel with a catchy chorus. Erased hits home with the underlying theme of Alzheimer’s and gives you chills. Being the most emotional song Cane Hill have written, it’s a curveball in the record but one that works really well. Scumbag picks up from Too Far Gone with the return of the in your face aggression that was missing from Erased, Why and It Follows.
The record is another brilliant showing from Cane Hill. Be it the crooning and heartfelt Erased or the in your face heaviness of the likes of Too Far Gone, there’s something for all the metal fans out there. Throughout the album there are some insane riffs and Witt’s vocals fit well with the differing styles.
