A lot of punk and hardcore bands have a somewhat limited appeal when it comes to making a grab for fans outside of the aforementioned genres, however Mary Jane Kelly have both the technical chops and live show to reach a much broader audience. Be sure to see the band on tour with The Abandonment in October and November.

Song of the record (and of the year) goes to “Set In Motion”. Apart from the fact that the music is second to none the commanding vocal-chant of “burn it to the fucking ground” simply cannot be ignored. The rhythmic heaviness of “Ebb And Flow” is complimented by another clean vocal passage, while the plethora of time changes and guitar parts offered up in “Reset” should keep even the most cynical metal fan happy. Rounding out Controller is “Homecoming”, a song that is as epic as anything else the band has penned in their career. Great record. Great band. Enough said.

Don’t be a judgmental halfwit like me. Forgive this band for having
the lousiest name in history and your clemency won’t go unrewarded,

For years metal has been fair
game for musical snobs to poke fun at, so it’s a relief to see a bunch
of self professed metal geeks get out there and make the show that we
all want to watch, and I for one cannot wait for season two.
