Healing Powers - 2013 - Listing Your Problems, With No Intent To Solve Them

Healing Powers are a three piece band from Durham, UK. Healing Powers play an emotional brand of hardcore that everyone needs to get familiar with. This three song EP, Listing Your Problems, With No Intent To Solve Them, comes roaring out of the gate and doesn't let up at all. I enjoy every part of this album. The singer has a great rough shout, the guitar transitions nicely between more solid, thick riffs to some noodly lead riffs dancing around the aforementioned gruff shout. The middle track I'm No Fun is my favourite, the singer's voice is still gruff but drifts away a little bit which plays with the meloncholy guitar riffs while still having enough energy to keep everything moving forward. Easily one of my favourite EP's of the year thus far. I really can't wait to hear more from this band, they've started on a solid base, hopefully they build on this solid foundation.
