Just weeks into the new year and the torrent of new modern metal is already upon us. With their last release Runes coming out way back in 2014, it seems like an age ago since we heard new material from Bury Tomorrow. However, it’s not like they’ve been slouching, in the midst of huge tours and festival appearances, Bury Tomorrow have been hard at work crafting this musical marvel. Hold on to your butts folks, this is Earthbound.

With the modern metal scene flourishing with enormously talented bands, securing your spot in the limelight is difficult to say the least. Although a band that has never left the prying eyes of the metal is Bury Tomorrow, and with what is to be their fourth studio release just around the corner it’s easy to see why that’s the case. Let’s lay down the foundation for this review by stating that Earthbound is an absolute beast, a deafening monster capable of crushing your entire being. Heavy is an understatement. The band have gone on record stating that the previous three Bury Tomorrow albums have worked as a sort of trilogy, and that with Earthbound they’re bringing us the next step for the band and that notion is definitely apparent with this release.

Earthbound is heavy from start to finish, bringing forward trademark Bury Tomorrow stylings as well as new elements for us to relish in. The vocal pairings of singers Daniel Winter-Bates and Jason Cameron is a formula that rivals Walter White’s chemistry skills. The balance of clean and unclean vocals is a recipe for powerful choruses and brutal breakdowns. In short, everything we want from a metal record. The track listing and pacing of this record is flawless, with each track pushing the heavy boundaries, leaving no room for flatline. Stand out tracks for us would have to be ‘Cemetery’, closing track ‘Bloodline’ and the riff heavy debut single ‘Earthbound. Not forgetting a definite notable mention, ‘301’ featuring non other than the titanic vocals of Hatebreed‘s very own Jamey Jasta.

Finding some negatives in Earthbound is no easy feat. Even the album artwork is awesome, shout out to Paul Jackson for his contribution to a truly epic metal record. Bury Tomorrow are moving their way into that modern metal territory that’s home to giants like Parkway Drive, that’s how good this album really is. A brilliant start to the new year wouldn’t you agree? We expect to hear a lot more praise for Earthbound in the coming months and cannot wait to experience some of these tracks live throughout the year, well done guys. Well fucking done.
