If you're a regular visitor to this site then you've almost definitely seen one of Brass Against's horns-heavy covers of hard-rocking classics from Tool, Rage Against the Machine, Deftones, Pantera and others. Not content with reinventing other artists' music, however, the NYC-based collective has made the massive step of writing and recording their own original compositions, joined by powerhouse vocalist Sophia Urista, who has crooned and roared on many of their viral covers. The first of those originals, "Umbra," "Pull the Trigger" and "Blood on the Other," appear on the group's forthcoming self-titled EP, due out this Friday, April 10th. (You can pre-save it here.) On the eve of the big drop, Brass Against have teamed with Revolver to give you the early listen to the whole damn thing. Blast it below.

"This EP represents the beginning of our own creative expression and evolution as a band," comments Brad Hammonds, who leads and curates the collective. "We obviously wear our influences — Tool, Deftones, RATM, etc. — and build on them with these songs, hopefully creating something new and unique."
