Review: THiS – “Hoc Est”

It’s not often you hear an LP that could have been written by Prince just as easily as it could have been written by Deftones.

Only this wasn’t.

This was written in Blaina. This was recorded live with no separation. This is THiS.

Mixing modern alternative melodies with scathing guitars, the sonic landscape that THiS have sculpted on their debut “Hoc Est” is nothing short of spectacular, only outdone by the bold decision to release the album with no web-presence, no gigs, and no label.

If there were no prior expectations of the band, this brave debut sets the bar seriously high.

5/5
