In Hearts Wake - Earthwalker Cover

A different shade of metalcore from Aussie lot In Hearts Wake? That's what we reckon about 'Earthwalker'...

Joining the ever-growing list of Aussie acts making a big racket internationally in the last few years, In Hearts Wake play a similar blend of super-heavy yet melodic breakdowncore to their peers in Northlane and The Amity Affliction. Hailing straight from the same tiny beachside town as Parkway Drive, this lot mix up brutal djenting with big choruses designed for singalongs. Lyrically, the good cop / bad cop vocalists detail the importance of being environmentally-minded and the evils of industrialisation; a welcome diversion from songs about depression, girls and brotherhood. It's one dimensional, but that dimension is pretty damn good.

The review originally appears in issue 188 of Rock Sound.
