Then we couldn’t stop fucking listening to it, especially the hammering post-metal track “A .’. A .’.” (which we’re glad we don’t have to pronounce).
Rock waits for no man. So we’re hyping it a bit early.
We’re told Courage Cloak features ex-members of Maintain, Matahari and Life & Limb, and the early comparisons they’ve been getting are quite favorable, revolving around the all-approved likes of Cave In, Hum, and Deftones.
Sure, cool, great, whatever, just fucking listen to it. Many bands strive for an “October” sound, but this EP sounds appropriately November to us, perfect for closing your eyes and letting the sound pummel you into someplace better.
Pre-orders for the self-titled EP, recorded with Alec Rodriguez at New Alliance in Cambridge, are limited to 500 copies and are available through Bandcamp. We’re sure they’ll be on the table at their show next Friday as well.
