Opening track Coward begins with a good instrumentation that builds into a typical but enthralling heavy track! It has angsty lyrics about becoming an enemy and not wanting to be a coward that are screamed well but it is definitely the instrumentation that takes the lead, with a sick riff and class rhythm section throughout.
There is a bit of spoken word at the end of the track which is an interesting add too. I won’t spoil it for you though so you’ll have to listen for yourself!
Overruled is one of the highlights for me. It’s in your face and a great one for the pit!
The titular track switches things up a bit as it opens with a more mellow instrumentation with some heavy drums peppered throughout as the vocals start, before kicking into the signature Rough Justice sound. I like the variety in the track.
The chorus has more of a singalong feel to it but I’m not sure the vocals quite suit the sound as I think it needs to be a bit more melodic than it is (though that’s just a personal opinion), however that’s momentarily forgotten as the breakdown kicks in.
Boa Constrictor is also a really good track. It has great instrumentation but it ends extremely abruptly and I never know how to feel about that.
Rough Justice have got a great album here! If you’re into heavy music, then you’ll definitely enjoy Faith in Vain!
