Son Of Man are a new band from California. They exemplify the new school of what gets referred to as Holy Terror style hardcore. While i refuse that genre suggestion this is merely a very strong metallic hardcore EP. There is very little to be known about the band but they play heavy and hard. The Guitars screech and squeal from riff to riff adding an extra layer of filth to the proceedings. The drums and bass are merely competent helping to move eqach song along quickly and without too much fluff. Like most metallic hardcore of this style what really stands out are the guitars and vocals. The vocals run with a rather guttural approach very throaty and full of desperation.
One of the big highlights is the artwork. The cover art (designed by none other than Dwid Hellion), depicts the music perfectly. Not so much dark as an encompassing feeling of doom. This all adds to the overall package creating one of the best EP's that have come out in the past few months. This is a listen well worth your while.
