FORESEEN - GRAVE DANGER LP
Returning a few years and a few tours after their debut album Helsinki Savagery set the world ablaze, Finland’s Foreseen HKI are back with the topically resonant savage crossover burst Grave Danger, their second album for 20 Buck Spin. Continuing the direction of its predecessor, this album delivers the punishingly relentless pace and aggression now firmly established by the band’s iron hammer. Scraping, throat-ripping vocals with lacerating thrash hardcore breakdowns twist seamlessly with an 80s heavy metal tenacity, exemplified on tracks like “Fearmonger,”,“Bloodline” and “Chemical Heritage.” The band embraces social commentary and critique throughout, as heard in “Government Cuts” and “Suicide Bomber,” for example. With new albums from several of the leading crossover bands of the current era being released in early 2017, Foreseen HKI are set to carry the banner for the United Forces representing Finland and Europe in a genre particularly known and grown in the U.S. — a perfect moment in time to unleash the fury of a politically-minded, no-joke European invasion into North America.
