Palm Reader is an ambitious name for any band, isn’t it? The implication of being able to tell the future and the alluded to ability to therefore stay ahead of the game is a lofty claim for a quintet working in an crowded marketplace. Nevertheless, there is plenty of evidence on Bad Weather that these Woking lads have enough creative spark to, if not predict the future, then certainly to have a degree of success in it.

It feels like Devil Sold His Soul have been around forever – they formed back in 2004 – but Empire of Light is only the London band’s third album. And it shows that the sextet hasn’t lost the desire to stop creating something new.

Picking up from where they left off with 2010’s Blessed & Cursed (via a slight line-up alteration), they have released another hour-long collection of atmospheric hardcore. If they learned how to control the chaos on said last record, this album sees DSHS use their skills to even greater effect.
