Idle Hands just released its debut EP, Don't Waste Your Time, not even two months ago. I figured it would interest this forum as this EP is fucking fantastic. I haven't been much on the whole 80s nostalgia revival, but this is NWOBHM worship that I can get behind.

FFO: Ghost, Iron Maiden, The Sisters of Mercy, In Solitude

This band is FANTASTIC! I learned of them from this board and I am very glad I did. I got the EP on Apple Music and will pick up the vinyl for sure.

Hitting this for the first time, this EP is incredible! Not usually a goth rock guy but this is a perfect mixture of oldschool heavy metal and melodic 80s rock. Great surprise!

I've listened to this quite a few times since first hearing it. Don't let the imagery fool you - it's good!

I haven't listened to too much goth rock in my life, but it was a great listen. Traditional metal is a sound that I'm so intimately familiar, but this was a very refreshing take on it. The melodies especially are fantastic.

Great stuff.
At times it reminded me of Paradise Lost and In Solitude.

I hate to admit it because I agree that the promo material looks like some graphic design abortion from the 90s, but I can see some of these songs getting stuck in my head.

Got the LP few days ago, really great and different stuff from what I usually listen. I've been following their previous band Spellcaster, really like the first album, pure heavy metal. They also have other new heavy metal project, Silver Talon, a little bit more technical but also pretty decent, if someone wants to check it out
