Californian metal band, Of Mice and Men, have released their song “Bones Exposed” off their new upcoming album Restoring Force. The band formed in 2009 and have since put out 3 albums. Restoring Force is said to be released late January.
Obviously, as a metal band, the general tone of their music is darker. The new song though, is a lot more haunting. It’s more than just screaming. The lyrics and the music are filled with guilt and a very resentful tone. Even though the song and lyrics are kind of heavy for my taste, I still really like it. Fans of metal will love it, and hey, even if you’re not a huge metal head you should still give the tune a chance.
I love how strong lead singer Austin Carlile’s voice is. It’s so powerful, and amazing to hear how his voice never weakens after hitting those screamo notes. The guitar plays an awesome rhythm and the drum line will have even the most anti-metal fans head banging. I cannot wait for the entire album, but for now I settle with playing “Bones Exposed” on repeat until January 28th! Make sure to pick up the album Restoring Force if you like the song!
