Dark Horse are a band from Australia that plays a mixture of grindcore, hardcore and punk and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Bomb Thrower".
A very heavy crust influenced sound starts off the album along with some powerful sounding bass guitars as well as some d beats before adding in a mixture of growls and screams and hardcore style shouts can also be heard at times and most of the tracks are very short in length while also mixing in the heaviness of grindcore.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the riffs also bring in a small amount of melody while also mixing in the energy of punk rock and back up shouts can also be heard at times along with the solos and leads also stick to an old school style of crust and the music always remains heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
On this recording Dark Horse plays more of a hardcore and d beat influenced style of crust while elements of grind can still be heard at times, the production sound s very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover angry and real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Dark horse and if you are a fan of crust, d beat, hardcore, grind and punk, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hope Was Your Mistake" "The Downing" "Bomb Thrower" and "Terminal Capacity". 8 out of 10.
