Of Mice & Men - The Flood

Of Mice & Men - The Flood Cover

A truly memorable, hip-shaking face-breaker of epic proportions? Yes, please.

Announcing their presence in no uncertain terms, aptly-titled opener ‘O.G. Loco’ sees Of Mice & Men bursting out of the gate in flurry of raging guitars, tinnitus-inducing double kicks and unrestrained abandon, only to segue into triumphantly soaring melodic glory at the drop of a hat. In lesser hands, this would amount to little more than a cut and shut job, but on ‘The Flood’ the transitions are so effortless, so seamless, that what emerges is a near-perfect example of how to marry potentially ill-fitting musical elements in stunningly effective fashion. A truly memorable, hip-shaking face-breaker of epic proportions? Yes, please.
