Hell Is For Heroes : Retreat
There’s a likeable clarity to their brooding menace
Hardworking: so often the term you’ll use when ‘Bloody Brilliant!’ just won’t quite do. And so it goes that if Hundred Reasons
are the effortless prodigies at the top of the class, Hell Is For Heroes
are the troubled try-hards. ‘Retreat’ is mid-paced, clenched-fist rock apocalyptica that falls short of either glorious triumph or passionate destruction. There’s a likeable clarity to their brooding menace, with Fugazi
-style guitar scrapes and hollow drum-crashes neatly spelling out The Terrible Pain Of Existence but it’s still running for the hills when it should be storming the barricades.
