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.
Second EP’s are like second albums, you need to change enough to show off what you can do while stay similar enough to not confuse your fan base.
Thornhill has hit the nail straight on the head with Butterfly, which kicks things off with ‘Sunflower’ a half toned down track that relaxes you into the release to begin with, then builds up perfectly.
Butterfly then assaults you with 'Parasite' 'Reptile', 'My Design' and 'Lavender', which are the awesomesauce evidence of their skills and will get the blood pumping. But my favourite has to be the closer ‘Joy’, again starts things off slow before picking things back up for the middle and then drifting away at the end, a perfect track to finish off Butterfly.
