The third long-player from the propulsive Costa Mesa, California-based metalcore outfit fronted by Attack Attack! vocalist Austin Carlile, the 11-track Restoring Force finds the hard-hitting/Steinbeck-inspired quintet expanding their sonic assault by adding elements of classic rock and nu-metal into the already lethal mix. Produced by David Bendeth (Paramore, Papa Roach), the Rise Records-issued Restoring Force was preceded by the singles "You're Not Alone" and "Bones Exposed," and was the band's highest-charting album to date, peaking at the number one spot on the indie and hard rock album charts. ~ James Christopher Monger
