For Today: Wake
Iowan earbusters fall into consolidation mode
It’s heartening to hear a band sound so fresh on their sixth full-length release.
Although it would be easy to fall into a rhythm of going through the motions by this point, For Today still manage, for the most part, to sound relevant. Wake takes elements of Upon A Burning Body, Blessthefall and even Thy Art Is Murder for the destructive battering ram of breakdowns and riffmonstery.
