I find it hard to keep a strong interest in hardcore bands. I feel they can stagnate very quickly. Not the case with Scottish band, Swallows. Their new EP, Haunted is their best music to date and has restored my faith in this scene.
The whole EP is a concoction of abrasive vocals cut with the melodic guitars and percussion, giving the quartet their strongest release to date. Haunted draws similar sounds to La Dispute and Frank Carter, taking you on a brutal melodic journey of sheer perfection.
With a delicate sound in Almost Always, to the poetic feature of Adam Craig on A Tired Soul, you are taken on an intense music journey with a band that knows how to get to your core.
Heading out on tour on 9th September, be sure to check these guys out for a raucous on new levels. Haunted is out now, be sure to get your copy here.
