French hardcore outfit Vera Cruz is streaming new album "Skinandteethandnails" in its entirety at AMPMagazine.com here. The band’s Season of Mist debut features eleven tracks of pulse pounding, relentless hardcore/metal and is out in North America now. Season of Mist comments on the album:
"Vera Cruz embraces the fine art of serious ass kicking with 'Skinandteethandnails.' Balancing melodic hardcore with rock influences, the French display astonishing mastery for such a young band. 'Skinandteethandnails' captures the explosive energy Vera Cruz unleash during their live shows."
On the album, the band states: "There's an overall theme about this album and the way it has been thought and composed. We always try to reach a sort of 'Holy Grail' in every song but like the latter, whatever is Holy doesn't lie in front of your eyes for everyone to see. It’s rather a kind of quest to find it. We would like people to be able to find what they've been seeking with our music. It's for everyone to decipher it and find what's under the surface." More...
