After over 8 months of delays, Days In December have finally released their much-anticipated second EP "Countless Hours Making Waves". And it's certainly a solid package - for your money you get 5 tracks and the enhanced video for lead-off single (and stand-out track) "Glass Vice". All of the songs on the EP are very good, with "Glass Vice" and "Bright Lights Through Red Eyes" being the pick of the litter. Each of 5 tracks have their merits; the anthemic "One Year Late" takes Thursday on at their own game and wins, and "Last Chance Before The Storm" (featuring Ryan "Rocky" Richards of scene favourites Funeral For A Friend), with its loud guitars, killer drumming and pop-hooks, is the whole Days In December sound in microcosm. The instrumental interlude - cryptically titled "Interlude" - serves as a gentle breather midway through the EP, and is far from throwaway. Fans of Funeral For A Friend, Coheed & Cambria or anybody else of similar genre will take Countless Hours straight to their hearts. Of course, it won't be to everybody's taste, but with their hooks and a killer ear for melody they have plenty of mainstream appeal. And they definately have big things ahead of them.
