Islander - ‘Power Under Control’ Cover

They're bringing Nu-Metal back.

The nu metal revolution is here to stay and Islander take the baggy-jean-wearing bull by the horns on their second full-length.

Flying out of the traps like it’s the year 2000 with opener ‘Darkness’, frontman Mikey Carvajal channels heyday Chino Moreno with a blazing rap assault that packs more bounce than a thousand rogue space hoppers.

‘Better Day’ takes things in a more melodic direction before ‘Think It Over’ ropes in HR from DC hardcore legends Bad Brains to fuel even more chaos. The level of consistent quality does waver at points, but there’s still some real gold to be found here.
