Angry, angry music from this Missouri based band, who describe themselves as “four dudes who like to play heavy optimistic music”. This being their heaviest release to date, you would think this EP was about confronting issues and exorcising demons, but in fact it’s quite the opposite. As these guys have pointed out, there seems to be some very similar themes in the lyrics of the hardcore genre, consisting of “brotherhood, violence, and generic principles of machismo”. Hence, Landlocked have broken free of the mould and created an EP that possesses a level of intellect usually found only on the likes of a Mastodon or Coheed & Cambria album.
