Album titles can be quite a dicey proposition. In a perfect world, the title should tell you something about what kind of action awaits inside the jewel box (or the album jacket). There’s not much room for error when you pick up Slayer’s Reign In Blood or Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream; you pretty much know what you’re getting into, either way. Which is why you should pay close attention to the title of the new album from modern metal mavericks MISS MAY I. The band may have recorded in a studio, but the title At Heart tells you everything you need to know about where those songs actually came from.
Don’t make the egregious mistake of thinking the boys of MISS MAY I turned into soft prima donnas. The band have been playing it lean and mean since their inception in Troy Ohio, four years ago.
Upon first listen, At Heart is the hallmark for a positively rejuvenated band acumen in delivering death-growls and vocals that practically guarantee the next stop on this journey is the stratosphere. Simply put, At Heart is a bona fide quantum leap for MISS MAY I. Whether you’re at the center of your emotional being or stepping lively in the biggest mosh pit you’ve ever entered, one thing is certain: There will be blood.
