You didn’t really think I’d let a grammatical error like that get away without comment, did you? Give me a break. I need this.

Gacys Threads – The Ignorance of Purity

Grammatically-incorrect Belfast foursome Gacys Thread have been flying the flag for Irish metalcore for three years now alongside Tullamore’s Murdock and Dublin act Red Enemy and The Ignorance of Purity is the latest in a string of EP releases. 

The haunting title track is a touch misleading, giving off clear Metallica vibes with a clean minor-key guitar melody before vocalist Aaron Vance encroaches on the scene with some tasty deep growls. The rest of the CD is a more brutal affair, leaning more towards the hardcore end of the metal spectrum with some nice Converge-like tempo changes and harsh, dissonant chord chords to counteract the furious riffing. At just 16 minutes, the EP flies by but even so they pack a lot of variety into a short timespan.

FOR FANS OF: CONVERGE, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, NORMA JEAN

RECOMMENDED TRACKS: ‘TO THE DEATH’, ‘BLACKHEART’
