Max Raptor - Portraits Cover

Debut mini-album from the much-talked-about Max Raptor lives up to the hype...

On their debut mini-album Midlands rockers Max Raptor have put together a set of confident, visceral and vital sounding punk-drenched alternative rock tunes that drip youthful exuberance and showcase huge potential. At their best on ‘The King Is Dead’, ‘Beasts’ and ‘Patron Saint (Of Nothing)’ the fiery riffage, measured aggression and boundless energy offers enough to suggest that, by the time their debut album proper drops, we could well have a UK answer to someone like Billy Talent on our hands. If that’s a lot of pressure to heap on a band this young, it’s only because we’re sure they can handle it.
