After first emerging on the scene in 2011, Brisbane’s Sun Heights have since been refining their sound while gearing up for the release of their debut album, “The War”.

Mixed and mastered by Jay Maas, the nine songs on here sound great. The band’s take on melodic cathartic hardcore is not the most complicated but these guys have a way with subtle melodies that fade in and out between the shredding. My only problem with Sun Heights are the vocals… as soon as Lachlan De Hayr starts screaming, I found myself losing interest courtesy of some seriously monotonous screams. If they work on that, I’m sure their next album will be a lot more effective!

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
