The album starts out with a very heavy metalcore/djent sound along with some aggressive screaming vocals along with some groove metal elements and you can also hear a good amount of melody in the recording and after awhile death metal growls become a part of the recording.
When the album finds its sound it is more close to a thrash meets hardcore while also having a good amount of melody and the heaviness of death metal along with the growls and the music is very modern sounding while the metalcore sounds of the mid 90's and early 2000's are still a big part of their music and at times the band brings clean sections into certain parts of the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Halfway through the album guitar solos and leads are brought in briefly and they add more traditional metal elements to the sound while the main focus is still on metal tinged hardcore as well as spoken word samples being added into a few of the tracks and while blast beats are absent on most of the beginning tracks they are finally brought on briefly on one of the later tracks.
Pray For Locust are one of the better metalcore bands around with their death metal influences and melody which make them sound good this style and while it is not what I regularly listen to, I can enjoy some of the effort that are added into the songs and the album has a very professional sounding production and lyrics that cover some very dark topics.
In my opinion Pray For Locust are a very decent sounding mixture of extreme metal and hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Batcountry" "Reap What you Sow" "God Of the Underworld" and "Heroin Eyes". 7/5 out of 10.
