Cruel Hand


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Spawned in the lethargic backwoods of the pine tree state, Portland, Maine’s Cruel Hand play an eclectic blend of styles that embodies anything but the serenity of their surroundings. Formed in 2006, Cruel Hand’s sound is equal parts New York hardcore and west coast thrash, all with a twist of their own. With five years of heavy touring and three LPs under their belt, the new decade will see Cruel Hand continue to mature and live up to their hard earned road reputation. Their latest release, 2010’s “Lock and Key”, was their most refined to date and a sure sign that the 5-piece is only continuing to rise. With a freshly solidified lineup and undisputable live show, expect to see them in your corner of the world soon.

    I like the new record a lot, far from my favorite of theirs but it's sort of a fresh take.

    Saw them last night and they played mostly new stuff. Seems like a different band from the last time I saw them, its like they went from hardcore to alternative rock. Still a cool band but they definitely went soft

    New album rules. I don't know why people are acting like the Hard Rock influences are bad. Sets them apart from every band worshipping 90s hardcore at the moment.

    I wasn't expecting that change in their sound and, holy fuck... this is awesome. I love their older stuff but this is just at another level. The Negatives is their best record imo.

    Not trying to sound like a traditionalist douche or anything, but the new record sounds like a strange amalgamation of "Load"-era Metallica mixed with 88 Fingers Louie. As one might imagine, this is a bad thing.Yikes.

    The Negatives is great. I wasn't too excited going in but it's damn good.

    The Negatives is just not for me. I'll keep listening to their other stuff.

    Anyone have a link to the new album, the website handling vinyl download codes doesn't seem to want to give me mine.

    All the new songs are sick, the cleans in Unhinged - Unraveled are brilliant.
