The Great White North gives us a blast of pummeling riffs and jagged tempos as Toronto’s own Cancer Bats gear up for the release of their much awaited sophomore full length Hail Destroyer on Black Market Activities. Hail Destroyer sees Cancer Bats mature sonically and evolving as they incorporate the past, present of hardcore while they pave out its future.

From the fury of proto punk acts like Black Flag and Minor Threat as they tip their hats to the indie-core legends of the late 80’s and early 90’s such as Fugazi, Drive Like Jehu and Jawbox and remain cut from a somewhat similarly coarse cloth of today’s movers and shakers in the realm of post-hardcore such as Young Widows, Pissed Jeans and Fucked Up to name a few. Make no mistake as Cancer Bats aren’t here to be lumped into a pigeonhole as their charging riffs and blaring anthem-like hooks ample for fist pumping and whirlpool circle pits perches them on a wholly unique level.

Swooping like a rabid bat out of, uh, Canada, Cancer Bats give a rowdy anddefiant clobbering to the eardrums all the way down to the bone. Consider yourself warned as we aren’t responsible for anything broken or destroyed within earshot of whatever stereo this album is playing from.
