BROKEN PRAYER: Self-titled: LP

May 08, 2013

Like their label mates Double Negative, these cats are not above kicking out some grade-A Poison Idea/Negative Approach-inspired thrashin’. Things get much more interesting when they slow it down and throw a wrench or two in the gears, though. Here, that means songs no less intense, but heavier on dark pop, brooding dissonance and, in the case of “Proud,” a buzz of pissed-off synths. Another winner here from SorryState.
