Band Of Mercy- Vegan Power
Texas-based, ex-Die Young, Band Of Mercy is a vegan rage powerhouse. The solos are simultaneously melodic and ripping with fast thrashier parts thrown in inbetween. The lyrics are pretty cheesey sometimes but I'm pretty sure they're supposed to be haha. Parts of this album remind me of Bad Religion's "No Control" but the vocals bring it in another direction with a more raw, angry feeling. These guys are playing Sound And Fury this year but haven't done much else so far. Considering the track records of some of these dudes I'm surprised there hasn't been much touring. Hopefully soon though. Oh, and one last piece of parting wisdom from the band- "Eat, fuck, be free! The Animals know better than we!"
