Orlando, Florida’s HAND TO HAND return with a highly accomplished and stunning new release “Design The End / Follow The Horizon” to prove that there is still a lot to offer the stagnant and often boring screamo / emo / melodic hardcore scene. The quintet plays high-energy hardcore with both an alternative and strong metallic edge to it. Based on a declared punk attitude “Design The End / Follow The Horizon” keeps it straight and effective led by Rob Kellom's remarkable vocals. Just like HAND TO HAND has always set out to achieve, “Design The End / Follow The Horizon” proves to be a driven source of intricate musicianship and emotive rock!
Do not call it a comeback and do not forget about HAND TO HAND’s stunning LIFEFORCE debut “A Perfect Way To Say Goodbye” released in 2005 and last years captivating “Breaking The Surface” MCD. “Design The End / Follow The Horizon” can easily be characterized as a hardcore and rock fused metal album with an ear for incredible hooks and catchy melodies. The boys from Florida let go of the boundaries and limitations that their previous efforts had placed on them and focused on great dynamics and a mature, yet fresh approach. “Design The End / Follow The Horizon” is far better than anything that the leaders of the melodic Hardcore-meets-metal have released in years. HAND TO HAND keep thought provoking and outstanding music growing at a spectacular rate.
