Another emerging new British hardcore metal act, this time from Newquay. Envy The Fallen are exponents of fairly extreme metal core of the shouty vocal persuasion. It is fast and furious stuff from the off and over the six tracks on the EP they prove themselves more than capable.

Of the tracks featured the ones to watch for are album title track ‘ Hoist The Colours’, ‘This Is Not Goodbye’ which is uncompromisingly heavy and the punishing ‘Until Lambs Become Lions’, you can well imagine the carnage in the circle pit during this one.

This is a good debut from the guys and it is a cut above some of the similar bands I have reviewed of late which is refreshing.
