“IT IS WRITTEN – IT IS WRITTEN (no label) Since 2007, State College’s It Is Written has been forging their no-nonsense brand of hardcore-laced heavy metal across the state’s stages. On their ten- song, self-titled CD, It Is Written – lead vocalist/guitarist Ken Hawkins, bassist/singer Bob Krebs and drummer/singer Darl Johnstonbaugh – merge fierce and terse heavy metal tenacity with progressive- leaning and dynamic song arrangements, resulting in an intense sound positioned comfortably between Pantera and Lamb Of God. It Is Written’s words are topical and observational about the current path of humanity and the world. Life, death and the hereafter guide the themes of tracks like the escalating crasher “Bed of Misery” and “Sworn Judgment.” Militaristic minds and global conflict concern the group on brash numbers like “War for Years” and “Lambs to the Slaughter.””
