Third time's a charm for these Aussie metallers...

It might come as a surprise to some that ‘Chasing Ghosts’ is The Amity Affliction’s third album; though their name has been batted around metalcore circles for a few years now, they’ve never been able to do a huge amount outside of their native Australia. That said, third time might well be the charm, because ‘Chasing Ghosts’ is a solid effort and one that successfully breaks out of the tired metalcore mould. Frontman Ahren Stringer has an Anthony Green-esque wail on the likes of ‘Flowerbomb’ and ‘RIP Bon’, while behind him there’s enough excitement and progression here to make ‘Chasing Ghosts’ a worthwhile look.
