Well, it seems as if metalcore has made its way to the UK, and as far as some are concerned (or at the very least, this particular writer), they can keep it. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
More so than any other genre (or subgenre) of music—be it classical, country, jazz, blues, rap, reggae, or its fellow denominations of rock—metal music has a tendency to be closely associated with the horror-film genre, not to mention horror culture in general. Whether it’s death metal, thrash metal, black metal, doom metal, metalcore, deathcore or hardcore punk, these extreme subgenres seem to be indelibly tied to fright cinema.
Spawn Atomic’s new POWERPLANT EP, recently issued on CD and just out on vinyl, showcases a solid sound delivering the band’s clever brand of horror-punk. POWERPLANT takes right off, and immediately you know where they’re going: right into a Misfits-worshipping realm of zombies, werewolves, blood, guts and sex—and it’s a lot of fun!
