Earplugs advised for metalcore

Of Mice & Men - Restoring Force
Of Mice & Men - Restoring Force

The first few bars of the new Of Mice And Men record will be enough to have most music fans running for the hills.

Granted, the metalcore band aren’t everyone’s cup of scalding hot tea, but there’s definite melodies amidst the madness.

Judging by sales and chart position, Restoring Force, their third studio album, is their most successful release to date.

It’s one for fans of the raw, tuneful aggression of Slipknot and their ilk. GC
