Pray For Locust are a metalcore band from Stockholm, Sweden. They mix metal and hardcore together like bands such as Soilwork, Killswitch Engage, In Flames have done well for over 20 years now taking elements from all types of metal and fusing them together.

This is the first I have heard of Pray For Locust and from the first seconds of the first track ‘Bat Country’ I was hooked! The band never let up the brutal riffs,thundering drums and aggressive vocals.

Next up ‘This Blackened Sky’,’Dead Mans Curse’ and ‘Reap What You Sow’ carry on from where the first track left off the album gets heavier with each track my stand out tracks are ‘God Of The Underworld’, ‘Statement’ & ‘Bad Blood’ but you every track is great.

If you have not checked out Pray For Locust, then you are missing out, because its everything a metal fan could want to listen to brutality and agression and i can’t wait to hear more from these guys.
