AllMusic Review by

Extreme metal quintet the Red Chord hail from Massachusetts, where they have established a reputation as one of the fiercest acts in the region. PREY FOR EYES, the band's third studio release, ups the ante on their pummeling blend of grindcore, black metal, and hardcore. The Red Chord stands out from their contemporaries for both their intelligent stance and their progressive musical tendencies (the album is full of breakneck start-stop structures and unexpected changes in direction). Everything from the shattering power of the rhythm section to Guy Kozowyk's associative lyrics and molten vocals makes PREY FOR EYES a must for fans of the genre.
