What You Need To Know:
Heavy is Relent's second full-length studio album on Rockfest Records, following Heart Attack.

What It Sounds Like:
Heavy builds upon the foundation they laid down in Heart Attack. Their fusion of old-school nu-metal with modern hard rock is a standout in the aggressive music scene. Improvements are found in every area–vocals, lyrics, and music.

Spiritual Highlights:
Relent addresses some heavy topics in this record, as expected from both the album title and artwork. Issues like hypocrisy, addiction, depression, and more are handled through mature, hope-filled songs.

The difficult topics can be summarized as lead singer Miggy Sanchez shared with RockOnPurpose: "God has always shown up in the midst... If He can do it for me, He can do it for you. Don't give up. I know it's hard, but you're going to be stronger from this."


Best Song:
The band's creativity shines on the title track "Heavy." They tap into the hip-hop style more–rapping verses, a near-spoken word bridge, and continually heavy choruses. Relent gets more ferocious in songs like "Danger" and "Ghost" which can't be missed.

For Fans Of:
P.O.D., Linkin Park, Fallstar

Bottom Line:
If you feel low in your soul, Relent's new music is sure to bring you some inspiration. What Christian-based nu-metal lacks in quantity, you'll often find quality. Relent is no exception. Heavy is definitely a highlight of the year.
