Actually, yes. The band has hardcore and thrash roots, and these roots shine through. The mix of great thrash rifts with the nice clean vocals does wonders to keep the pace throughout the album. All the songs on the EP flow well: There is just enough heavy to entertain the average metal head, but not so much that would make the casual hard rock enthusiast turn away. The mixing on the album is also done well. All the instruments can be heard and the sound quality is crystal clear.
The band manages to put together plenty of groovy riffs to get any head banging.
A Darker Day set out with a mission, and with their EP, they have accomplished it. Elite metal listeners may not enjoy this music, but the average person into music on the heavier side will enjoy it greatly.
