Thank you UNFD for producing another Ozzie gem.
In keeping with Australian Metalcore for another week, I now present to you Thornhill’s second EP Butterfly. A band who hail from Melbourne and consider themselves to be an Alternative Metalcore (more sub genres?) group and I couldn’t agree more. They have transcended the generic sounds of MC and breath new life into the genre. Having been newly formed they have impressed their peers and have already toured with the likes of Void of Vision, Northlane, Parkway Drive and many more.
A satisfying entry.
The Last Key was received with mixed reviews upon release and it certainly won't satisfy everyone but is a solid entry into the Insidious franchise with good performances, enough scares to please and a solid story. Where does the series go from here? Who knows. If it's the last film, it's a good way to end it.
Of course the first album review was going to be Aussie Metalcore.
The best thing about taking a holiday in Australia for me is catching up on all the metal acts I’ve been missing out on. Now I can’t remember if it was Short. Fast. Loud (punk, emo, hardcore and similar) or The Racket (more heavy metal) program on Triple J, but on one of them during a drive home from a friend’s house I heard a track off Polaris’ The Mortal Coil.
I then spent the next half an hour repeating the name in my head until I could get in doors to some WiFi. After a couple of listens while cruising the streets of Western Australia I was hooked, Aussie metalcore wins again.
