Doing what they do best.
After a three-year hibernation, He Is Legend are back and firing on all cylinders with ‘Few’.
While their fifth album boasts a radio-ready sheen that some fans may dislike, they’ve never sounded more focused.
From the politically charged ‘Air Raid’ and the chugging riffs / soaring melodies combo of ‘Sand’, it’s accessible but still heavy as hell.
‘Gold Dust’ revives their progressive groove, while elsewhere the lingering Deftones-esque textures of ‘Eastern Locust’ – complete with Schuylar Croom’s soulful wails – conjure goosebumps.
Streamlined or not, this is the sound of a band who’ve rekindled their original flame.
