Yes, they did do that YouTube-exploding Taylor Swift cover. With an original EP and now this full-length under their belts, though, I Prevail are stepping into bold new territory.
Indeed, if you’re rolling your eyes and anticipating a straight-up sing / scream metalcore snore-fest then you’ll be pleasantly surprised. There’s real melodic depth to ‘Lifelines’, drawing bravely as it does from both softer rock and pop influences and more mosh-igniting fare.
While they might not be the finished product quite yet, if you’re looking for genuine songcraft in a subgenre that so often lacks it, you could do a lot worse.
