    Can we please talk about this young band from Australia called Thornhill? I randomly found this



    through youtube recomendations and ever since been obsessed with their EP Butterfly. Especially I am digging the song 'Joy':



    A few thoughts that since popped into my mind:
    • What is up with Australia and Metalcore these days? It looks almost systematic. Who or what is pushing this development over there? Who's feed should I kiss for this? Northlane, Polaris, and hundreds of smaller bands that make their debut on dreambound.
    • How do they engineer these dreamy omnipresent clean vocals? It's not just a shitload of reverb. Or to phrase it differently, Simply putting a lot lot of reverb on your clean vocals wouldnt sound (as) good.
    • Is a comparison to Currents, especially their new EP, totally out of hand?
    • Is this (modern) metalcore? Djent? What to call this?

    My dude... I’m loving an Aussie band called Alpha Wolf at the moment too! Check them out!
    They describe themselves as ‘nu metalcore’

    One of my best friends engineered this EP.

    Ethan, the guitarist/main songwriter for Thornhill is an absolute gun. Killer style and a really interesting approach when it comes to songwriting.

    Thornhill has been in my playlist ever since Ryan from Polaris recommended them. Great dudes and I hope I'll be able to see them live any time soon.
    Australia is to Metalcore/Dj0nt what Sweden is to melo death.

    We're just 5 years late to whatever trends are popular in America so we tend to be good at it since we have more time to work on it.

    Plus the drop bears will fuck us up it if doesn't go hard enough

    Got a lot of time for these boys. Best band I've found in a while.

    Anyone know what their plans are for an album? I've noticed them talk about playing new songs live.

    Do they know they share a name with a well-off Toronto suburb?
