Shadow Hearts
Company: Standby
Release: 2017
Genre: Metalcore/Hardcore
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 11/1/2017

UK Post Hardcore that falls a little short
COMMENTS:
With their 5 song debut, I get a feeling of Linkin Park meets Evanescence meets metalcore. The clean vocals are very reminiscent of early Linkin Park with some screams and growls thrown in. I personally found the growls and vocals to be a little tiresome and lackluster. Musically, the samples used and the riffs are pretty solid and they definitely use the samples sparingly. The production is quite good and really helps the album sound cohesive in all its elements. If the band can evolve a little in their sound and get the vocals a little more consistent, they will definitely be a more polished sounding unit in the future.
