Random Hand - Metal-Punk-Ska Spectacular!
The new age of Ska/Punk comes to you in the form of Random Hand. Combining Ska with a Hardcore background Random Hand produce a more aggressive form of Ska than people in the music scene will be used to hearing. It is clear that Random Hand have taken influence from Rancid as the Punk side of Ska/Punk seems to be the more dominant of the two. There is some loyalty to the Ska trademarks by using lots of brass instruments with an almost reggae beat, followed up with heavy guitars, powerful drums and passionate vocals. The album can be summed up in the song ‘British’ with gang vocals, brass and aggression all coming into play to help create a winning formula for Random Hand. When listening to this furious fast paced album, you just want to jump around to music which can only be described as fantastically written and pumped full of passion. Every song has its individual charm but all feature passionate lyrics which lead to very catchy choruses, adding to the appeal of this album. Inhale/Exhale is Random Hand’s second full length release and it is sure to rocket them into the limelight. There is a tour with Reel Big Fish this month and it would be no surprise if Random Hand stole the show. This album doesn’t have any one particular ‘stand out’ track as the whole album is just phenomenal and it is impossible to find fault with it. Even if you are not a fan of Ska music, then have a listen to this album and it will definitely change your mind.
