The debut release from Hamilton, ON's own Counterparts is for fans of both metal and hardcore and gives you exactly what you want in a heavy album.
Although the group is one of the countless many under twenty metalcore bands to emerge from the southern Ontario music scene within the past five years, they bear the startling distinction however, of virtuosity; being among the genre’s elite. “Prophets” is a veritable masterpiece of metalcore composition; satisfyingly heavy with a raucous hardcore spirit, superb technical finery and melody without kitsch, all slickly polished by the hands of metal-guru Jordan Valeriote at Sundown studios. The fledgling five have been an immediate presence in their scene, maybe never having inured themselves to the rite-of-passage despair of playing to an empty room or a peopled one in which nobody cares; perhaps owing to their highly captivating, highly competent, high-energy live performances.
