They said “Too Hardcore for the Metal kids .. and Too Metal for the Hardcore Kids” and this band from Glasgow, Scotland, UK sounds just like – in the most positive sense – any other furious gang from Brooklyn, especially they reminds me of Biohazard. Actually I was afraid of some cheap Metallica copy, you know – “Die by my hand, I creep across the land, Killing first-born man”, but it’s not the case, their 90’s crossover it’s just fucking great, they have groovy riffs, deep growling basses, pounding drums and raw vocals, it’s just bloody nice that they don’t have clean – pussy – vocals and don’t shoot the same boring screamo/metalcore cliches, By My Hands it’s nothing about, but rage and pure unleashed energy.
Formed in 2003, Sean – guitars, Chris – vocals, Dave – drums and Alex – bass delivering short, cutting, straight and strength anthems, raw expressions of fury and hate. This is not quantum physics and no way to write poetry about it, this is dirty and weighty hardcore/metal crossover and it’s good as it is. Simple things sometimes are more exciting than some too sophisticated shits and metal/hardcore it’s not about shoegazing, isn’t it?
