All Music Guide - Greg Prato
So you're looking for a metal band without all the "sword and sorcery" imagery, and a punk band whose members aren't mostly interested in how well they put on their mascara, eh? Well, you're in luck -- the Toronto-based quartet Cancer Bats fits both of these descriptions. Their 2008 release, Hail Destroyer, also proves that the group has learned well from its influences -- namely Refused, Black Flag, Down, and Black Sabbath.
