Add Date: May 12

Artist: Children

Album: Hard Times Hanging at the End of the World

Label: Kemado

Genre: Rock, metal

Comments: From the promoter: "New York City's Children are about to deliver an electric shock to the world of contemporary metal. Their debut, Hard Times Hanging at the End of the World, ripples with speed, precision, and a visceral intensity that is seldom seen in any genre of music these days... Produced by Joe Blaney (The Clash), Children's debut album was recorded entirely analog for a thick, vintage feel... The six massive tracks that comprise HTHATEOFW feature intricate, narrative dual guitar work and a frenzied, wired demeanor."

I'm no metal aficionado, but this sounds like it's really well done. What I can do is vouch for their record label, Kemado, which puts out fine music by the likes of Dungen and Marissa Nadler, among others. The promoter's recommended tracks are "Advanced Mind Control," "Hard Times Hangin'" and "Subterranean Cities."
