"Powerless" cranks the metalcore energy back into effect as the screams over drums and feedback that open the track set the stage nicely. At only 2:06, "Powerless" is actually quite a powerful track. "Innocence" is another solid number, offering up some fast-paced metal goodness, but the horror movie-like piano at the end gives it a super creepy and awesome feel. The album's final song, "Hollow Lies," has a hard rock intro, but quickly jumps into the metalcore that defines Gilded.
Prevailing Providence is a relatively new band, but they know metalcore. Love or hate the genre, it has a massive following and a signature sound. This Minnesota band knows the sound and knows how to play it well. While most of the album is fairly standard metalcore, tracks like "Powerless" and "Innocence" try to inject a little bit extra. The top track has to go to "Whole," though. While the idea for a song like this isn't a new one, it's executed to perfection. The additional vocals at the end actually work to complement the track and don't feel like something tacked on that detracts from the overall product.
Modern metalcore fans should certainly find a lot to love about Prevailing Providence. Check out the band's Facebook page for more information and details on how to help them get on the bill for Warped Tour 2017.- Review date: 5/10/17, written by Michael Weaver of Jesusfreakhideout.com
