Hail the Villain is hard rock in its purest sense. The strong vocals propel the songs forward but it is the catchy melodies that struck me most. With great lyrics and complex song structures the band will impress fans and if you have not heard their music before you might be won over by their obvious talent. Though the lyrics are good ones there is no denying their dark nature. What saves them is their obvious personal tone.
No more accurate a critique could be written than saying that this band plays entertainingly catchy music. Formed in 2003, the Oshawa, Ontario quartet is maturing nicely.
