Seasons In Wreckage are 5-piece melodic hardcore band from Portsmouth, UK.
Their EP Perspectives is their debut work, released in 2013. They are very young, but their music is promising already.
Listening to this short EP, I could say the song are maybe simplistic, still overall well crafted.
The riffing is straightforward and close to the metalcore style but there’s a nice balance of heavy chugging rhythms and melodies. Also the drumming is solid, the vocals are good and one thing I’d like to point out is that there are nice transitions from screaming to clean singing in the most “sing-along” moments, making the songs catchy without feeling cheesy or whiny.
Taking into account the young age of the members, the lyrics are also pretty good and with a “motivational” vibe to them, as HC is often used to.
My standout track would be To Be Misled, maybe the most impactful amongst others.
I would have enjoyed some more dynamics and a little more complex riffing and arrangement on the EP, still the young lads are delivering and I’m just curious about their next release.
They’re taking part in what sure is nowadays a promising hardcore scene in UK, and they have plenty of time to improve their sound.
