CRUEL HAND 'Lock & Key'
Full of just as many catchy, metallic riffs as mosh parts, Lock & Key is a heavy mix of influences like Madball, Leeway, Cro-Mags, Metallica, Suicidal, Obituary, and is one of the most well-rounded hardcore albums in recent memory. Lock and Key was recorded in Wakefield, MA with producer Jay Maas (Verse, Bane, Defeater) and illustrates what Cruel Hand is capable of both lyrically and musically this is more than just a progression of their past material, this is a defining release for Cruel Hand. Since the release of Cruel Hand's Bridge Nine debut, Prying Eyes, in 2008, the band has been a relentless touring machine and one of the tightest bands in the hardcore world. Cruel Hand has shared the stage with bands like Have Heart, Bane, Terror, and Death Before Dishonor, and will continue to tour the globe non-stop in support of Lock & Key.
