Now this ones a fun one ladies me gentlemen, sorry for the short hiatus but I’m back finally, I’m gonna do a review on one of my favorite bands. If you haven’t seen yet this is the newest release from the Canadian sludge/hardcore outfit Cancer Bats with “The Spark that Moves.” If you aren’t familiar with Cancer Bats like I said they got some sludge and doom influence in their style but they also infuse hardcore and punk rock to their songs which adds to a cool mix of songs. So let’s dive right into this bad boy.
Just like classic Cancer Bats they want to blast you right outta the gate with their first song appropriately called “Gatekeeper” which is a groove filled fun time of a song. Throughout this album is full of party anthems like their first song. But don’t get me wrong you’ll get more pop filled tracks like “We Run Free.” And they even make a tribute song to Winterpeg simply titled “Winterpeg.”
Overall this album brings the riffs and really catchy vocals plus pounding drums, these boys never fail to make a really fun record to listen to. Go check out this fantastic album and go support these great dudes!
Today I’m giving this album a 9/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.
