The debut from This Curse, From The Darkest Places certainly keeps you on your toes. The 5 piece band from Northern New Jersey wrote the album whilst enjoying their first tour and having enjoyed an impressive reaction through the Spotify Metalcore playlist they have certainly raised some excitement.
The release is 27 minutes long, spread across 7 tracks that span a range of styles from Post Hardcore to Pop Punk. The title track starts us off with a bass heavy screaming welcome which blends into a sing along Metalcore track. ‘Usurper’ certainly stands out with a distinct Dillinger Escape Plan sound to it musically.
Quite a lot of the musicality fits a Technical mould until the chorus, when it gets more mainstream and then back to the unique music that stands This Curse apart from the busy scene that they will undoubtable be trying to make an impact on.
The tones of the tracks really revolve around which vocals are used, between screaming to clean harmonised singing, this is an impressive start their career that will build a solid foundation for what is to come.
