(Search and Destroy)
While a best British newcomers award for While She Sleeps from metal bible Kerrang! was predictable, an 11am airing for the band’s thunderously heavy single This is the Six on Fearne Cotton’s Radio 1 show was not. But the Sheffield quintet want to reach beyond traditional metal audiences, and it’s an ambition at least partly realised on their debut album. This is no craven bid for the mainstream; sludgy, distorted guitars, breakneck drums and larynx-shredding vocals predominate. But the ringing guitar lines of Seven Hills and chant-along refrains of Love at War will cut some way across musical allegiances.
