Ninetail - Half Truths And Hand Grenades
Ninetail reigns from York Pennsylvania and have just released their sophomore album. Although I’m unfamiliar with their previous work, the promosheet did raise some expectations. Especially since they're heavily inspired by American Head Charge, Bloodsimple, Pantera and Lamb Of God.
 
What is it with all those bands nowadays that just want to have an intro to their album? Most of the time it’s completely useless and it just adds nothing to the atmosphere on the album. Well the first track on Half Truths And Hand Grenades is no exception to this. Despite the name ‘Karma’ doesn’t add anything to the album. Luckily I’m able to release all that frustrating energy on the real first song on the album which is also the title track.
 
Downtuned riffs combined with jackhammer pounding drums are in the forefront of the music. Above all there’s vocalist William Heitman growling and screaming his guts out. The first couple of songs do contain some nice influences of the mentioned bands but sadly enough it ends there. Most of the time the music is quite mediocre and isn’t able to grab my attention for several songs.
 
No doubt about it that this is a live band that can tear it up on stage. The only problem is that they aren’t yet able to capture the same brutalness on the album and still keeps it exciting to listen to. Although I’m not completely positive, I do have to admit I’m curious about the next album whether if they can push the songwriting to another level.
