Gallows for Grace
A Process for the Destruction of Tomorrow EP

Aussie deathcore Part 2,  actually, this could even be the same review as Gallows for Grace, like their Australian brethren (and brothers in crime) Thy Art is Murder, play shredding, gruff deathcore, with plenty of chug, grunts and blazing Paul Waggoner wannabe runs to make lads and lasses in their asphyxiating garments cream until the frickin cows come home.

Actually, where as Thy Art is Murder, is all about bludgeoning the listener for nigh on 20 minutes, there is a degree of intricacy with GFG before they do the same. There are also some interesting avenues the band could potentially explore but certainly need to develop. In particular, the shredding parts that they litter throughout, and also the pseudo black metallite passages. If both areas were fleshed out, constructed more acutely and brought more in line with each song’s framework, they would accentuate each piece’s impact. Whereas at the moment, its all sounding a little too forced and this goes against them, because rather then these parts sounding epic and grandiose, the opposite occurs, they sound weak and insipid.

No doubt if you have read my reviews in the past, you will know that I always talk about how a band has potential and that they need to develop it. Well, I am going to say it again, GFG like their label mates have skills, no doubt at all about that, but rather then sounding like the big American bands on Century Media (Thy Art is Murder, Suicide Silence, these cats, Winds of Plague), they need to start bringing more of their own personality into the mix, because when these boys hit it, they do it big time and given that this is just an EP (and that they are probably all super, super young), then the truth is that they have serious prospects for the future, providing they continue to hone and improve.
