While She Sleeps: Brainwashed

Album Review

Yorkshire’s metalcore kingpins fight back to glory

It would be fair to say that the past 18 months have been troublesome for While She Sleeps HQ. No sooner were they heralded in certain corners as the greatest thing in British metal since Rob Halford’s leather trousers than they had to call the whole thing off due to frontman Loz Taylor needing serious throat surgery.

Their future hung in the balance, with rumours of their demise whizzing around the internet like flies on the brown stuff, but all negativity was quashed thanks to their blistering Download set that left all flags firmly flying.

And now, three years after that spectacular debut This Is The Six, the Sheffield metalcore merchants have returned with a point to prove. Can you still be relevant three years after your big break? The answer is a big, fat ‘Fuck yes’.
