Why? Because the first time you hear the opening moments on their second studio album ‘Last Day of Sun’ it becomes apparent very quickly that this is the sound of something very fresh, and that feeling only comes around every now and again.
Written after a harrowing experience overcoming leukaemia, vocalist/guitarist, Mark Whelan spews his most inner thoughts and emotions across twelve crushing tracks. From ‘Respect the Blasphemy’ to ‘The Sign of Pain’, and the heart-in-mouth brilliance of ‘Leaving Euphoria’.
‘Last Day of Sun’ packs a serious punch with dense, mountain-levelling heaviness, clever song structures, lashings of groove, and haunting melody that left me feeling breathless at times.
Simply an outstanding album.
