Wilkes-Barre, PA metal/hardcore band MIND POWER features former A Life Once Lost frontman Robert Meadows on vocals, plus members of Bring the Heat, Dead End Path, and Ligeia. Their latest album ‘Self-Torture’ (released earlier this year on Jump Start Records) also features guest appearances from notable metal standouts like Norma Jean’s Cory Brandan, Darkest Hour’s John Henry and Michael Schleibaum, The Red Chord’s Mike McKenzie, and Most Precious Blood’s Rob Fusco, just to name a few.
The band has released a new lyric video for the album track “Grounded”, which is now streaming above.
“…finds them delivering a darkened ’90s hardcore sound with the labyrinthine musical arrangements of Meshuggah. It’s a dizzying sonic concoction that is channeled through the players with a fierce focus on all of the details.”- No Echo
“It’ll tear your head off.”- Metal Injection
“How do you distill anti-social, aggressive self-loathing? For a good primer on the subject, you could start with the new video from Mind Power. There’s something genuinely disconcerting about a plainly-dressed fellow letting it rip like this, conveying a deep inferno of dissatisfaction that rests within all of us.”- Decibel
“…serves as a great introduction and showcases that these guys can still hit the technical grooves and sheer anger of their past exploits while pushing towards some atmospheric and darker elements that make them feel different…what a hell of a way to start.”- Metal Trenches
