Reaper In Sicily - Islands Cover

This one points towards something positive, we reckon...

Reaper In Sicily looked marked for stardom before their progress was checked when guitarist Matthew Jenkins was diagnosed with leukaemia back in 2010. Now thankfully recovered, the South Wales quintet are back at full throttle with this infectious pop-punk debut recorded with Funeral For A Friend producer Romesh Dodangoda at the helm. Hugely anthemic, with gut-busting vocals from Rhys John Bernardo, what the band miss in distinctiveness is more than made up for with fire and passion, with the catchily-titled riff churner ‘Chuck Norris Got A Chainsaw’ and the title track’s wall of sound pointers towards a positive future.
