The voice of Danilo Herbert reminds me somehow of John Bush (ex-Armored Saint, ex-Anthrax). It’s powerful and classy. MindFlow was founded in 2003 in Brazil and they play a color and powerful kind of modern, progressive metal. Quality stuff, a rare feature now days. You can attach to them a few labels, mostly using the fancy “post” attribute, but actually you can not put them in a specific box and – I believe – it’s another absolutely positive characteristic. In one moment they sound like Anthrax, next minute they sound like Tool or some post-grunge band and they shifting from one thing to another very naturally, it’s enough to listen the title track of this new album and you will understand exactly what I’m talking about.“With Bare Hands” it’s their forth album and consist of 14 strong, consistent, perfectly shaped songs. The Anthrax parallel remains through the whole album, but it’s actually not that obvious and MindFlow always switch and surprise, they manage to done things differently. And by the way, while Anthrax didn’t release anything since “We’ve Come for You All” (2003) and “Worship Music” originally set to be released in May 2009 is still on hold after Anthrax kicked off vocalist Dan Nelson, then bring back John Bush just to kick him off again and finally they return to Joey Belladonna once again, I think “With Bare Hands” will also satisfy all the starving Anthrax fans as well. But not only them. MindFlow is a killer band and definitively they deserve the break through and “With Bare Hands” may be their ticket to the world. Check them out!
