A Hero A Fake - Let Oceans Lie Cover

There’s definitely something here. Pondering between sleek passages of progressive metal and energetic melodic hardcore, A Hero A Fake cut an alternative viewpoint in the fast-rising pool of technical metal. Although ‘Let Oceans Lie’ occasionally has trouble blending the two personalities, when it works it does so brilliantly, ‘Our Summit, This World’ an example. However, when the band step outside the box completely, as on ‘Dear’, they really start to impress. Their influences are still brashly presented, but A Hero A Fake show a tenacity for skillful and tempered songwriting that holds promise for future releases. A definite prospect.
