A split EP from the awesome metal/hardcore groups Palm Reader and Conjurer, both taking on two covers each.
Boasting four tracks with two covers each, both bands tactfully pay tribute to some of the acts that introduced them to heavier sounds whilst simultaneously imprinting their own distinctive brands of noise to their selected songs. Conjurer tackle Slipknot’s ‘Vermilion’ and Mastodon’s ‘Blood and Thunder’ with blood thirsty metallic zeal, whereas Palm Reader caustically make Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Tire Me’ and Thrice’s ‘Circles’ entirely their own.
It’s sometimes easy to forget that outside of their respective discographies and relentless touring, both sets of musicians are first and foremost ardent heavy music fans. If nothing else, this small but mighty collection of covers is built precisely with the purpose of re-imagining and recapturing that first listening experience of a beloved song.
