„The Carrion Sky“ is the debut album from My Minds Weapon and what you get here is everything else but rotten. The Scots unite old school metal with “new school” (metalcore) and manage to keep a certain accessibility. The vocals of singer Ben Timpson are diverse and range from growls to clean vocals for the chorus; his strength being rather the growls, though. Bullet For My Valentine showed how you can be successful and also appeal to a rather mainstream audience with a little more heavy music like that. My Minds Weapon still lack, however, a certain edge that would make the songs stick to the listener´s brain a little longer. Thus, even if they still have to wait for the big breakthrough, with this album they already have the basis for a successful career.
