Red Right Hand hails from the northeastern United States where they are garnering quite a bit of support in the metal scene. They have had a successful tour through the Midwest with the culmination being a live performance at the notorious Milwaukee Metalfest.

They play an upbeat sounding thrash/punk hybrid that reminds a little of what "State of Euphoria" era Anthrax would sound like if mixed with a little aggressive punk such as the Misfits. The vocals and drums is what really give them that punk kind of sound. The vocals are clean with a lot of tongue in cheek lyrics. The musicianship overall is pretty good with good riffs and leads and the songs are very catchy as well. What hurts this album a little is the production. The lead guitar sounds a little muffles and kind of hard to make out clearly. The sound overall gives it that tinny kind of sound as if there just isn't enough bass. This is one of those albums that seems to get better with each subsequent listen as the songs start to stick with you after awhile. I would have preferred a little more aggression in the music personally but the album is pretty good overall. This is another one of those cases of a band that is a little rough around the edges but with the potential to take the next step and well worth checking out.
