Dark Horse are a band from Australia that plays a mixture of grind, crust, hardcore and punk and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Sick Of the Living, High On Death".
A very distorted reverb sound starts off the album before going for more of an old school crustcore direction along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and when vocals are added into the songs they are very aggressive sounding screams and th e music also brings in a great amount of blast beats.
You can hear a lot of hardcore and d beat in the bands musical style while some of the riffs also bring in melody at times and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts, high pitched screams and growls and there is also a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts present throughout this recording.
Dark Horse plays a very old school style of crustcore and d beat which they mix in with elements of grindcore to create some very raw and aggressive sounding music, the production sounds very raw yet powerful at the same time while the lyrics cover violent and hateful themes.
In my opinion Dark Horse are a very great sounding mixture of grind, crust, hardcore and punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sick Of The Living" "Welcome to Your Homicide" "Unwanted" and "Days of Rage". 8 out of 10.
