IN­TEGRITY

Kerrang! (UK) - - REVIEWS - ALIS­TAIR LAWRENCE

■ AS THE ti­tle al­most tries to warn you, lis­ten­ing to this be­fore bed is a good way to en­sure you wake up scream­ing a few hours later. In­tegrity have been meld­ing death metal and hard­core punk to­gether for nearly 30 years and front­man/force of na­ture Dwid Hel­lion sounds as dis­ap­pointed with the hu­man race now as when he started. Howl­ing… is full of venom, in­spired by his­tory and pol­i­tics to cre­ate a dense mix of buz­z­saw riffs and eerie at­mo­spher­ics. there are also some sur­prises: the soar­ing String Up My Teeth man­ages to chan­nel Dwid’s un­likely af­fec­tion for ’80s cock-rock, the re­vival of which by a lesser band would be a recipe for more bad dreams. DOWN­LOAD: I Am The Spell. FOR FANS OF: Con­verge, Hate­breed.
