"The past 2 years has been a whirlwind for East Lancashire (UK) rockers Exit State. With a successful debut album, a tour in Finland, a video playlisted on Kerrang TV (Lost Beyond Beleif), support slots with Blaze Bayley (Iron Maiden/Wolfsbane), Dave Evans (AC/DC), The Black Mollys, Witchfynde & Black Spiders you could be forgiven for thinking the band has been around for years. However, the early success of their high octane sound has been almost immediate, not least due to their crossover appeal to rock, metal, pop, punk, indie & alternative crowds alike…."
Balck Veins is the lads second full length album, building upon the solid foundations they set with 2010's Death Of A Rockstar debut. It feels like the songs have a slightly harder edge to them this time around, yet I dont see the band loosing any of their crossover appeal. the riffs come thick and fast, the lyrics are excellent, and the melodies really shine here, making Black veins a difficult album not to like!
There is plenty of variation here too, from the riffage of the opening track, Enough Already and Check Out the Crazy, to the gentle melodies of Ten Years Later, the quirky Indie rock feel of Stay and the grinding riffs of the title track Black Veins.
All in a great album from a very promising band, whi I beleive are going to be huge.
The Guys are planning a extensive Uk tour in October to promote the album, Id suggest you get yourselves along to a show and check them out for yourselves!

Very Highly Reconmended!
