Devil In A Midnight Mass (Single)
by Billy Talent
Released: Apr 2006
Label: Atlantic Records
Billy Talent started out as Canadian hardcore band Pezz. Since the name change they've added some emo-ish harmonies but the brutality is still there, as evidenced by this single from their forthcoming second album for Atlantic. With propulsive guitars and screamed vocals, "Devil in a Midnight Mass" takes on some dark issues, namely priests molesting altar boys, with the sort of unflinching honesty and seething anger any good punk band should employ.
