Mindset is a Melbourne-based band who have just released their debut album, “Midnight Sky”. That’s right, Melbourne as in Australia, the land where if you flush a toilet, the water spins the other way round. And the home of Crocodile Dundee. And just like that movie, this album is fun yet slightly forgettable.
Taking a whole lotta cues from acts such as With Honor, Comeback Kid and other modern melodic hardcore bands, they pound their way through the ten songs on here with plenty of thudding drums, shouted vocals and gang vox alongside the occasional breakdown. It’s all executed with plenty of energy yet nothing really sticks out and you can hardly call this original. Now, maybe if they would wrestle an alligator onstage… then we’re talking!
