I Prevail finally released their highly anticipated second album titled TRAUMA. The band is tagged as a post hardcore, metalcore band, but I would classify them more as an alternative- rock- core if I can Frankenstein genres. They are heavy metal for sure, but also manage to incorporate a perfect little alternative sound to their post hardcore sound. TRAUMA is the first full album that I had heard from the band, although the first song I heard from them was their cover of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space,” and it is better than the original for sure. This album circles around a theme of depression, anxiety, and the deep emotional pains that come with dealing with them.
