Cruel Hand - Prying Eyes
Cruel Hand started out as a side-project of the members of Outbreak. They wanted to do something totally different and that’s why guitarists Chris Linkovich and Jeremy Breau respectively picked up a mic and some drumsticks, Nate Manning, a drummer, started to play guitar and Joe Lacey handled bass-duties. Later, Joe Lacey quite the band and Seger Dailey replaced him, while Cam Foley was added to solidify the line-up. With the signing to Bridge Nine and the release of Prying Eyes, this band can’t be seen as just a side-project anymore though. All the members are fully committed to the band and now, after the release of their full-length debut, their intentions are to show the world how real this band actually is.
Just as what we can expect from Bridge Nine’s releases, Prying Eyes turned out to be a heavy and good album. The twelve metal-influenced hardcore songs are played with a lot of passion, power and dedication and that’s exactly what you want to hear on such a record. After seeing them live two weeks ago, I can also conclude that the songs from Prying Eyes are killer tracks live. They say they don’t care about what is currently cool to sound like, but with this mentality, they did create a pretty cool record though. Mosh parts, catchy metal riffs, Prying Eyes just has it all.
If you like your hardcore a bit influenced by metal you should definitely check them out. This record is one way to do that, but you can also wait until April/May, when they will head over to Europe (again) to perform with the great bands H2O and Death Before Dishonor.
