As is the case with Alchemy by Irish band Brains, it’s always a really cool thing when an album from a band you’ve never heard of manages to blindside you with its awesomeness! Now, judging by the name of the band, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Brains is some sort of generic death metal or deathcore band complete with slams and gutteral growls.
