Australia has a new face on the block, and they’re called Inhibitor. The Melbourne born deathcore group has unearth their debut EP ‘Abhorrence’ to the world. Inhibitor spawned in 2020 and released their singles ‘Loathing’, and ‘Death’. The EP finds it’s roots in deathcore’s earlier moments with the execution and technicality of today’s Deathcore, give or take. The band may resonate for fans of Thy Art is Murder, Aversions Crown, and Angelmaker. The EP is a 5 track heavy-hitter, and features a guest spot from Mark Poida (Ex- Aversions Crown) to send off the EP on a strong send off.
In hindsight, almost any Bring Me The Horizon fan should have seen it coming. The seismic stylistic shift between 2013’s Sempiternal and 2015’s That’s The Spirit, though only 2.5 years apart, was signaled by the single release of “Drown”. A track that contained none of Oliver Sykes’ screaming, instead opting for a more pop-oriented side of the band, was the catalyst for an album that eventually went Gold in the USA.
Acclaimed Swiss metalcore band Breakdown Of Sanity called it a day in 2017 after 4 albums, countless shows, and a fanbase that many bands in the genre would kill to have. Considering those are big accomplishments that many bands never quite reach, there wouldn’t be anything wrong with leaving it at that – but it appears all is not lost for fans who were hoping for a comeback of any sort.
