Signs Preyer

Southern inspired groove metal? Yes please! (Speaking of which, I'm going to see Lamb of God on Sunday!) The bass heavy attack of Signs Preyer is more than mere Pantera worship, this is a band with their own unique approach to metal incorporating influences like BLS and Red Fang without sounding much like either of those groups. Instead this band uses a lot of excellent clean vocals and some truly hard hitting riffsto create something new and exciting. The way their riffs flow is not typical of groove metal, instead it tends to be a bit jazzier with some cascading arpeggios that most groove bands would avoid. Yet there are also some good old hard hitting riffs with a crushing drive worthy of a group like Devildriver. In sum, what sets this group apart is essentially the excellent (and dominating) clean vocals, which obviously give the band a taste of their own. Toss in some great riffs that you can really get a pit started with (I'm looking right at you 'Anger') and you have yourself a band who have the potential to be the next big thing out of Italy. Groove metal fans across the globe, look out for the metal force that is Signs Preyer!
