Album Review: Sleigh Bells - Reign of Terror

Friday, 17th February 2012 10:02AM

Reign of Terror is the mature, self-reflective follow-up to Sleigh Bells' aggressive and unrelenting debut, Treats.

The ninth track on Reign of Terror, ‘Road to Hell’, is shocking. Not because it’s an aggressive assault on one’s eardrums – that’s saved for almost every other track – but because it’s heartfelt, subtle even. Alexis Krauss’ honeyed pop lyrics delicately head-up the melody as guitar feedback and mechanical percussion restrain themselves. It happens elsewhere on the album, most notably on ‘You Lost Me’ and ‘Born To Lose’ and even on classic Sleigh Bells tracks Krauss’ vocal is a crucial part, ingrained into Derek E Miller’s signature cacophony.
