Savage Hands, a new band post-hardcore band out of Waldolf, Maryland, has just released their debut album Barely Alive via SharpTone Records. The album was released on March 2nd , 2018. Savage Hands is formed by members: Mike Garrow, Justin Hein, Ryan Evans, Nathan O’Brien, and Jonny Melton.

 

 

 

 

The band announced their signing to SharpTone Records with their debut single and music video, Red. Red is also the first song of the album, giving listeners a glimpse of what was to be expected for the vibe and tone of the rest of the album. Immediately when the song starts, you are hit with a melodic catchy type of opener that perfectly displays their sound throughout the record. As the song develops, the tone starts to change and get a little more angry and more melodic, changing from the clean singing vocals to some heavy screams. In this song, Savage Hands displays their ability to change from a type of smooth melody versus to absolute chaos in a matter of seconds. They transition effortlessly and it really makes the song flow well together.

 

 

Watch the official video for Savage Hands – Red:

 

 

Following the success of Red, the band released their second single for the song, Your Own Hell. Along with Red, this song also starts off an extremely catchy chorus type of verse to get the listener interested right away. Starting around the 1:30 mark of the song, the song takes a turn and starts to get heavy quickly. Again, the band is able to transition to heavy without making it so obvious that is what they were trying to do. The lead singer, Mikey, does a tremendous job of changing up his delivery through this song specifically. He shows the ability to nail all the catchy singing and chorus, but then can get right into the raspy screams of this song. In my opinion, this song shows the overall sound and progression of the band the best of any song.

 

 

 

 

On the album release date, Savage Hands released a music video for their song, Unconditional. Unconditional starts a little different than their previous songs, as it almost has an R&B feel up until the 30 seconds mark of the song. Once the 30 second mark hits, the song and band go back to their roots with their delivery of catchy choruses and raspy screams that blend together perfectly.

Although the band tends to follow a similar format in terms of song structure, each song has enough different elements to separate them from each other. For example, Unconditional features a short guitar solo, an element that is not present in other Savage Hands songs. Another example of this is the song, Taken. Taken is the bands first attempt at an acoustic like, slower passed song and they absolutely nailed it. You can feel the emotions of the song from the vocals of Mikey. It is not hard to understand that somebody important was taken or removed from the life of a band member, hence the title and meaning of the song.

 

 

 

 

The album is total is seven songs and 26 minutes long. It is quick and fast, but each song has a great build up and delivery to it. These guys are going to explode in 2018, and make a huge name for themselves. They have a very prominent sound that a lot of post-hardcore and metalcore fans will love. The ability to sing and scream well throughout transitions is one of the best elements of this band.

 

 

 

 

Although relatively new, they have toured with bands such as My Enemies & I in the past. Savage Hands have also announced that they will be doing a show in Cleveland with the band Nine Shrines in April. If you have not already checked out Barely Alive, take a listen right away. Savage Hands is definitely a band that has a bright future ahead of them and SharpTone did another great job of recognizing talent and signing them.
