BURNT BY THE SUN
HEART OF DARKNESS
RELAPSE

New Jersey metalcore titans Burnt By the Sun have sadly decided to call it a day, but at least theyíve graciously given us a mammoth farewell in the form of their explosive 10-track swan song HEART OF DARKNESS. This menacing menagerie of metalcore mayhem impressively recreates the cult unitís seething delivery after a six-year hiatus with trademarked edgy songwriting twists cemented into a brash barrage of tumultuous technical metal colliding into chaotic and confrontational hardcore perspectives masterfully captured via Mike Olenderís vitriolic and venomous bark. This is not your run of the mill Hot Topic metalcore, kids; this is the real deal from seasoned veterans that get the job done with a proficient combination of brutality, integrity and expedience, providing the necessary nastiness that lunges from the speakers with an insatiable wrath to destroy.
