Scarlett O’Hara - Lost In Existence Cover

Gone with the wind? Most definitely

Unlike their restrained and breathy namesake, the debut from this Texan six-piece might be a hefty piece of work, but unfortunately it’s metalcore by numbers – which is totally fine if you like to damage your grey matter on unoriginal ideas. While there’s no disputing their musicianship and delivery that’s tighter than their painted-on slacks, with so many bands executing the machine-gun chuggery, downtuned open chords, half-rhythm breakdowns and gang-style vocals juxtaposed with sung sections, ‘Lost In Existence’ does exactly as it says in the label. Why doesn’t anyone want to stand out from the metal crowd these days? Gone with the wind? Most definitely.
