The biggest surprise in regards to mountain boys The Sign Of The Southern Cross (SOTSC) and latest effort …Of Mountains And Moonshine is probably its absolute absence of surprise.
The problem with The Sign of the Southern Cross becomes obvious quite early into the album – they’re too busy trying to sound like their influences that they really haven’t developed their own sound.
I’ve had a few people ask me why this site is named Hellbound; what prompted the decision to give this site that moniker. So I thought I’d take a few minutes to explain the whys and hows of the name and the creation of this site. Hellbound isn’t a term I came up with. It’s not even a term that I have any sort of real attachment to. It’s more or less something that came to me by just trying to help out the local metal scene in my community.
