So i usually push all kinds of bands, but since today is a slow day, and I've been listen to essentially only one album all day, i thought I'd let you know about it.
Means: Sending You Strength
This a great new hardcore/post-hardcore act from Canada i believe. They just signed on to Facedown Records and released Sending You Strength. The music is very aggressive and heavy but has very melodic moments that keep you very interested and helps the record have a little bit of contrast versus some albums like Hatebreed or maybe the new Comeback Kid record Broadcasting.
I like to hear a little singing once in awhile which is which I'm a little disappointed in the new Comeback Kid record, i miss Scott's vocal though Andrew is really intense live.
Anyway, back to Means. This record has very positive lyrics and great gang vocals to sing along with. If you're looking for something to keep you awake and motivate, put this record in and turn it up loud!
