EP Review: Hardrada by Johnny Marvel

Northern Ireland four piece Johnny Marvel have made their new EP Hardrada available for a free download over on their bandcamp page.

It’s a storming 3 track EP with elements of Math Rock and Post Rock. Opener ‘Tir Cannan’ has a fantastic chorus with some crushing riffs. ‘Breakdown’ opens like an early Biffy Clyro track before taking in elements from Tool, turning into an epic hard rock track. ‘Truffle Hunt’ has a lovely bass groove with some lovely guitar work. The track meanders through some delicious hooks, an intricate guitar riff to a fantastic finish reminiscent of compatriots And So I Watch You From Afar.

It all sounds pretty raw, but there’s a quality behind the band which makes you sit up and take notice. Get in on the Johnny Marvel action now.
