Sleeping Giant — Finished People

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★☆☆ This is very meat-and-potatoes detuned metalcore by the numbers. That said, rather than aiming for some kind of genre innovation, the band seem quite content to generally double down on pumping the album full of energy. It makes for an effective (if oddly adorable) half hour of moshery. One notable exception: the triumphant “Son Of God, Son Of Man” manages to lift the album around it with this memorable crescendo of rage. (Bonus: the album is long enough to help you put in a decent workout. HUGE.)
