Thornhill - Butterfly EP

Label : UNFD Records | Archive under metalcore

Release type: Mini-CD

Job : The very young collective called Thornhill from Melbourne is releasing its debut EP in February with ‘Butterfly’ – an energetic assembly of smart, djenty metalcore songs with a strong feeling for infectious hooks, ballsy groove and a stellar production. The five piece has just finished high school and their sheer drive is palatable. That almost biological need for survival in this crowded genre also determines the ever clear library of influences they draw from – Karnivool, Northlane, Architects and to a lesser extent more modern Bring me the Horizon. All of the songs shine in their honesty though and songs like ‘Parasite’ and ‘Plastic’ immediately nestle in the back of your brain to stay there for days on end. Closer ‘Joy’ is perhaps the most explorative of the songs, on which a drawn out melodic undertone develops into a spacious and ultimately a fulfilling song. This stunningly well-written debut makes me anxious to hear what the band can do with a bigger budget and a debut full-length!
