HEARTS & HAND GRENADES – Turning To Ashes
The New York quartet bring forth an overall entertaining rock album that, while falling a little short in areas, make up for it with a selection of potent bangers worth smashing the replay button for time and time again.
The title track and For The Weakened start the record off in relatively good fashion, and Daggers and I Hide continue to keep it at a solid quality, but venturing into the second half, that’s when the juicy material truly comes alive.
Adrenaline features awesome tempo-elevating sequences, Nothing Left has an infectiously rampant energy, impressive solos and enjoyably catchy hooks, The In Crowd launches from blues-rock influenced verses into gloriously barraging blitzes, and My Sickness serves as a high-octane climax.
With a focus on commanding raw and raunchy vocals, clobbering rhythms and intense riff displays, Turning To Ashes is a great debut from a great band who could potentially make something of themselves if able to up their games.
