Hostile Little Face- The Architect
Release date: 2011Oct10
Label: Firestarter Music
Hostile Little Face hail from Australia and bring their blend of melodic hardcore for the masses to enjoy. “Deus Ex Machina” starts things off on a somber note that quickly increases in pace, leading into “Superhero”. The latter track is pleasantly catchy and it’s similar to stuff from bands like Set Your Goals, etc. “Without You” changes things up with a somber, almost weepy tone. I’m not feeling it. Tracks that stood out include “Steady My Arm” (I’m feeling this one…reminds me just a teeny, tiny bit of “When I Come Around” by Green Day), “All Away” (the drums take on an urgent feel and again, it reminds me of Set Your Goals, etc) and “Wait” (another on the sappy side). Overall, the vox are decent on most tracks and they have a good sense of melody. Better than I expected. Check it out.
