The new album contains eleven tracks of pure adrenaline – charged hardcore, sure to please both metal diehards and hardcore fans alike. Tracks like “Get Real,” which features Terror’s Scott Vogel on guest vocals, pay homage to ‘90s hardcore while peppering in more modern elements like massive metalcore breakdowns and an always-driving beat. “Time For A Change,” while still including hardcore staples like riotous gang vocals and another of the album’s brick-and-mortar breakdowns, showcases some smooth lead lines during its more melodic outro.
“Live and Learn,” the album’s first single, is a well-rounded representation of Obey The Brave’s bare bones, progressing from blistering double-kick blasts throughout its opening verse to some tasty breakdowns and another rather musical outro that adds an extra dimension to an otherwise relentless track.
“Imagine Shai Halud mainlining on creatine, steroids and black market testosterone and you have an idea of where this quintet are coming from. Thick and lethal guitar chug and vocals bordering on death-metal bellowing are off-set by spidery single-note melodies and catchy sequences.” – Alternative Press
Originating from Montreal and Ottawa, Canada, Obey The Brave is vocalist Alex Erian (ex-Despised Icon), bassist Miguel Lepage, guitarist John Campbell, guitarist Greg Wood and drummer Stevie Morotti. Fueled by passion and a strong DIY ethic, Obey The Brave are taking their high-energy live performance across country on the All Stars Tour this summer and will head to Europe this fall on the Never Say Die Tour.
