The re-release of Earthtone9's Limited edition EP 'Hi point' injects some welcome passion into the British metal scene.
The EP blasts off with the acclaimed scorcher 'tat twam asi' with Karl roaring at his silky best, and urged on by some pulsing rock the 'hi point' states its mission, then the stupendous 'alfa hi' strolls in and shows just why this band won every acclaim going with Kerrang using them as the headline band at the Kerrang evolution fest for four years running (1,2,3&4), the third song on this EP is a cover version of a Shihad track 'You again', but what a cover! lifting a good song into the stratosphere with some truely exuberant axe work and the magnificiant use of a riff that the Deftones would die for, the forth and sadly final track is a re-mix of Vitriolic hs2000 a high energy track with Owen Packard given it'rice' and will have you forming a mosh pit in your sitting room.
A pulsating collection of the best from the best, don't miss this one or you will regret it for the rest of your life.
