Bray Road – Formation – EP Review
Beware the moon lads, beware the moon!
Milwaukee old school thrashers Bray Road embrace the melodic crunch and powerful grooves of cult heroes Atrophy, Defiance and Xentrix on new EP, Formation.
Mostly mid-paced, these Wisconsin-based riff wranglers settle into rock-hard grooves and, while a little deviation would be nice, there’s enough head-banging moments to sate the most bloodthirsty appetite.
Satisfyingly crunchy, the likes of “Ties That Bind” and the interestingly titled “Ten Faced Human Waste” echo the malevolence of Puppets-era Metallica (while not quite reaching the same ‘heady’ heights) but the overall apocalyptic sense of grandeur is clear to hear.
Fundamentally, Formation is a more than decent EP from a band with oodles of promise! 7/10
