‘THOU SHALT DROWN IN THE BLOOD OF THY CHILDREN’
Spankraght are a bit of a revelation here. Yes, there are many bands that have incorporated dance style, synth and heavy guitars but these guys do it very well indeed. Opener ‘Synopsis’ is very War of the Worlds in its creation but then ‘Reset Mankind’ gets the ball rolling with an incessant barrage on the senses and the ever-present synth powering everything along. The screamo style vocals are there and very good.
Particularly well done is how they keep the vocal slightly below the music which further enhances the sound. ‘Carnivale’ the single has a very cool riff and is one of those tracks that can whip a crowd into a manic frenzy. The start of ‘Hoop’ is all about glow sticks in the air and ‘Resilient’ is epic. As fabulous as the tracks are and as much as they get you moving, there is an underlying darkness within. Seek and you will find. The production is excellent and the sign off track ‘Exodus’ simply ends what has been a stunning, heavy, sweaty, mind-bending trip.
