When you see the name Cameron Mizell (Palisades, Myka Relocate) as the producer, you´re home safe with a top notch sound and Virginia based Honour Crest´s 2nd album "Spilled ink" ain´t no exception. The production is huge, crispy and very heavy. But then again, Cameron had his hands on some really great songs from Honour Crest too.
If you want to indulge yourself with a cool blend of metalcore and electronica, "Spilled ink" is the album you´re looking for. What a pompous entrance the band would make on stage to the tones of "In irons" and then head over to the massive "Mountains". I love the balance between growls and clean vocals which comes out for the best in tracks like "Glaciers" and "Spilled ink".
I love it!
