Of Mice And Men live review – London, The Forum
Venue: London, The Forum
Austin Carlile finds new ammunition for the metalcore canon with Of Mice And Men, live in London – with support from Crown The Empire and Hands Like Houses
Despite Of Mice & Men’s healthy following, the Forum isn’t full to capacity, but that isn’t going to stop the people down in the pit having a good time. First up are melodic Aussies HANDS LIKE HOUSES , whose emo-tinged tracks don’t quite have the punch they do on record. A synthy backing track melts into the guitars to make a thick soup of whimsical riffs, but set closer Introduced Species has enough speed to get the crowd bouncing.
