While She Sleeps - ‘You Are We’ Cover

This is big, this is really big.

"We’ve got nothing to lose," spits Loz Taylor a few moments into ‘You Are We’, and his sentiment rings loud and clear over these 11 blistering, confrontational, and breathtakingly intense tracks.

Set to the backdrop of a world in flames, the Sheffield crew’s third album is a little less immediate than its predecessors, but makes up for it with dynamic, richly emotional anthems (‘Steal The Sun’) choruses readymade for festival scream-a-longs (‘Empire Of Silence’) and – yep – massive, slamming riffs lurking around every corner.

When Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes pops up on ‘Silence Speaks’, it feels like a moment – and they’re hardly in short supply here. Mightily impressive stuff.
