My son and I had the opportunity to collaborate on some video and photo work in Phoenix for metal band, Cons. I'd first heard of them due to their guitar player having played in The Bled for years. Their EP "Slowhealer" was produced by Saosin mastermind Beau Burchell and I knew that if he worked with them, their output would stand head and shoulders above the competition. Without question, that assessment is spot on. The 5 tracks (7 if you've got the hard copy) are heavy, intricate, ambient, shredding, and powerful. Give these dudes a listen and let me know what you think. Recommended if you like Oh, Sleeper, Norma Jean, Saosin, The Bled.
