FOULPLAY
Waiting For The Day EP
Self released, 2011

 

 

By Shane Pinnegar

 

This new 3 track metal EP crossed my desk last week and I’ve spun it a few times now, and I’m finding it grow on me with every listen.

 

Foulplay play pretty much traditional metal with a pinch of Alice In Chains groove added to create an individual style, and feature some inventive and interesting songwriting and playing and impressive, powerful vocals from leader Asiri Perera.

 

All three songs impress, but it’s ‘Liquid Sky’ that is the standout track here, with it's soaring vocals and some great soloing from Trent Mitchell.

 

“Waiting For The Day” is the first release for these guys, and whilst the playing in parts is slightly stiff, with a little roll injected into their heavy rock they have the potential to come up with something truly great.
