Label: Fearless Records

With a pair of GRAMMYs under their belt, I Prevail certainly have nothing to prove. A band of gigantic proportions, they’re a rattling, rolling battle bus of a band, but not one who can’t get reflective either.
Previous full-length ‘Trauma’ showed that, and latest ‘True Power’ channels it. ‘There’s Fear In Letting Go’ crunches with gut punches, growling assertions and melodic flair, while ‘Visceral’ fits its given name, belting through like an animal unchained.
Using a self-admitted ‘no rules’ mentality to their songwriting, it isn’t freewheeling to the point it ever loses track of what it is, but it’s also not stuck so tightly within a box it fails to thrill. ■ Dan Harrison
