This Boston outfit made quite an impression on me with their full-length debut “Travels”. Now they quite simply come out with a release with an even bigger impact. As if it’s nothing to them. This EP is once again a concept album, telling the story of a WWII veteran who comes home only to be confronted with disillusion and despair. Yup, there’s still no light at the end of the tunnel for these guys. They only thing that has changed is that these guys have slowed down a bit on “Lost Ground”. They still sound mighty intense though and know how to write engaging and touching lyrics. With the recent demise of Have Heart and Verse, it’s good to know that there are still equally good bands to fill the void.
