Let//Go screams into your ears from a self-titled with all the intensity that draws people into metal. Energy pours forth from the rapid-fire drumming and furious vocals, shaking the listener by the shoulders as the lead guitar creates a hypnotizing effect. Occasional punches of deep, resounding bass add some depth. The lyrics issue a call for believers to pick up those that have fallen.
These guys are very clear they want to change our broken world using hope as their weapon of choice; they want you taking up the charge along with them. There’s not a track on this album I wouldn’t be willing to set on “repeat” for a couple of spins. If Let//Go can continue this quality of work, I’ll be a rabid fan in short order.
