Editorial Reviews

Hailing from the streets of Seattle, Himsa's continually evolving, but forever heavy sound is probably more fitting for the rain capital of the United States than any other Seattleites before them. Where many a day are dark, gloomy, and soaking wet, Himsa's music, whether coincidentally or not, justly reflects the city's dreary atmosphere. Hail Horror, the follow-up to 2003's critically-acclaimed Courting Tragedy and Disaster, very much continues in that vein. Prosthetic. 2006.

Customer Reviews

I highly recommend this for any hardcore metalheads.
rockin88
They don't use a lot of breakdowns, but lots of catchy aggressive riffing, harmonies and good solos, vox sometimes have hardcore feel.
Vsevolod Y. Koudriavtsev
Himsa might not break much new ground as far as their style is concerned, but rarely do you find a band that meshes this well.

For those of us who grew up appreciating metal in its prime (~83-~94), nothing has been more frustrating and disappointing than the last 15 years in the music industry. We have been forced to watch our favorite bands sell out, our favorite genre become nothing more than a footnote in history (and a misnamed VH1 special), and our favorite labels suddenly cater to either fringe subsects of metal or to baby-faced bubble-gum poppers who unconscionably replaced face-melting guitar solos with weak, yammering crybaby ditties. The final nail in the coffin of heavy metal was driven by all the *rock* stations in town who - almost simultaneously - replaced their rock-and-metal formats with the same aurally abusive playlist-based "Classic Rock" format. Heavy Metal seemed to have seen its day, and many of us long ago stopped mourning the Infinity and ClearChannel-sponsored holocaust of Metal.

I stopped buying CDs by the dozen long ago. Not because I didn't have the money, and certainly not because I was downloading albums (insert anti-piracy pitch here). Metal simply did not exist. There is a definite demarcation line between the last Metal age and today... It began with Nirvana, and the gap between Metal and "in-music" just broadened from there. Seattle killed heavy metal.

Well, Seattle has finally offered its penance for years of polluting the airwaves with poisonous, uninspired grunge in the form of Himsa - and I accept.

I first heard Himsa last year on a REVOLVER magazine "Bootleg Series" free download - and I was hooked. What was this? Is that a *riff*? Is that a *scream*? Did that song really begin with something other than a little boy complaining about his daddy issues over the same retarded fifth chords?

When I heard they were coming out with a new album, I though "Maybe I'll download some songs", I liked what I heard so I went out and bought the album, I wasn't dissapointed.

1) Anathema is fast paced and promises a good album 8/10

2) Sleezevil is the first single, and I think its one of the best of the album. 8.5/10

3) I really wouldn't listen to The Destroyer while in a room full of babies, because that song makes me want to go on a rampage. 10/10

4) Pestilence is a good haunting song. 7/10

5) Wither is alright, not too good. 6/10

6) Wolfchild is the best song off the whole album, its the song that pretty much defines himsa. 10/10

7) Seminal sounds alot like a song off courting tragedy.., its good. Love the vocal work. 7.5/10

8) They Speak In Swarms is another one that defines himsa. See what I said about wolfchild.

9) Calling In Silent is pretty alright. 7.7/10

10.) Send down your Reign is good, the vocals were a hit and miss though.

Overall I think this is a really good album for fans of metalcore, hardcore, or just metal in general.

The Good

"Anathema" is as haunting as it is devastating. The drums pound ferociously as vocalist John Pettibone delivers like a madman possessed. "Sleezeevil" kicks the tempo into overdrive as Himsa slams you with an all-out metal assault. Strap yourselves in for a fiery dual guitar attack courtesy of Kirby Johnson and Sammi Curry on "Pestilence." Pettibone unleashes his most intense performance yet with his vocals. "Wither" will suck you in with it's clean ballad-link opening instrumental, but will eventually drive a stake in your heart when the distortion kicks in. You can hear a lot of old-school thrash influence in the guitar work. Once again the guitar execution steals the show on "Seminal," while "Calling in Silent" represents the epitome of what metalcore is all about.

The Bad

Nothing notable

The Verdict

Death metal (metalcore, hardcore...whatever you want to call it) and I have a love/hate relationship. Most of the time I can't stand it, but every once in a while a band comes along and draws me in. Himsa just happens to be one of those bands. Sure, they have all of the same elements of the genre; heavy riffs, pounding drums, and snarling vocals, but I think that their sound is reminiscent of the thrash metal of the eighties, mixed with the harder and louder tones of today's metal. The vocals are traditional hardcore, but strangely enough sound in tune. Kneel down to the future dark Lord's of death metal. Don't just Hail Horror, hail Himsa.

I would've never thought that Himsa would up the ante & make an incredible album such as this one. This is definitely WAY better & HEAVIER than Courting Tragedy And Disaster. The production is awesome, the songs FASTER. It starts off with Anathema, which sets the tone for the whole CD. I definitely agree with one reviewer, this is up there for the best albums of 2006. I highly recommend this for any hardcore metalheads.

Himsa is THE most gifted Metal band of today. Whenever I listen I hear emotion and melody in the music, and the voice is a part of that. I've seen Himsa live and they do not dissapoint, they are the most accurate and precise metal band I have ever seen. When you listen to the speed of the attack in their sound, you can't believe that they can actually deliver the assault.

Do yourself a favor and pick up the best metal CD of 2006.
