MISS MAY I

FIT FOR A KING/ VOID OF VI­SION/CUR­RENTS

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Reviews - CRAIG HUNT­LEY

EX­CHANGE, BRIS­TOL

It may be cold and wet out­side the Ex­change but it’s hot­ter than hell in­side as CUR­RENTS [6] and VOID

OF VI­SION [6] churn out their met­al­core that sounds far too sim­i­lar to have an iden­tity of its own. FIT FOR A KING [7] up the ante with soar­ing melodies , rum­bling beat­downs, crush­ing grooves and up-for-it at­ti­tude. ohio’s MISS MAY I [8] are on fine form on the Ex­change’s com­pact stage tonight, with lead singer Levi Ben­ton a swirl of hair and right­eous fury, com­mand­ing the band and keep­ing the crowd in the palm of his out­stretched hand. Their lat­est al­bum, Shad­ows

In­side, has been out for six months now and the set hangs heav­ily on the newer ma­te­rial. Its melody is front and cen­tre with the tri­umvi­rate of Crawl, a ven­omous crowd-sung Un­der Fire and the ti­tle track, show­ing how far the band have de­vel­oped their sound from their ear­lier days.
