Portland, OR-based heavy metal/goth unit Idle Hands released their debut EP last year and it was enough to get the Decibel team salivating for more. Formed by Spellcaster bassist Gabriel Franco when that band ended, Idle Hands combine Spellcaster’s sense of heavy metal glory with goth rock tendencies and vocals.
Quickly following up on debut EP Don’t Waste Your Time, Idle Hands are ready to show the world their debut EP, entitled Mana. The first offering from that album is “Give Me to the Night,” which Decibel has an exclusive stream of below. At less than three minutes, it’s a quick but satisfying teaser for what you can expect when Mana drops on May 10 via Eisenwald.
“Mana is 8 months for 40 minutes,” Franco tells Decibel. “I spent every waking moment for the better part of the last year thinking about some detail or another regarding this album and I am very satisfied with the end result. Also immensely grateful to have such talented and open minded bandmates willing to work with me and my sometimes questionable ideas, but I promise there is substance in all these tracks, and we all put real hard work and honest emotion into everything we do.”
