The EP opens up with “Selfless” and the combination of orchestral strings with disjointed electronica gives this a somewhat ominous, even dramatic tone, it could easily find itself accompanying a movie trailer…in ways it’s like a modern take on a film score from Kaiju legend Akira Ifukube, or so it reminds me at least, before the vocals kick in and we’re pummeled with a visceral metal onslaught. The aggressive and clean vocals complement each other well, coupled with the use of breakdowns and we’re left with a solid dose of metalcore; it’s a decent opener. New single “Before You Go” follows up and again, there’s electronic elements at the top of the track, somewhat mechanical sounding but not as far as going fully industrial in genre. The track then descends into more of the same in terms of brutal metal entwined with bold vocal melody and it’s enjoyable, but the abrupt ending feels more like someone pulled a power cord as opposed to providing a climax and it sounds unfinished to a degree.
“The Void” then, after such a delicate intro is slowly engulfed by more chugging, djent-inspired riff-work, with former ATTACK ATTACK! Vocalist Phil Druyer lending his lungs to proceedings and it really is a song of two halves; the underlying looping piano offers a sweetness to offset the unrelenting metal, while first single “Callous” follows a similar formula more or less just with more focus on the heavy vocals, while the title track and “Disclosure” practically follow a rinse and repeat formula. As far as metalcore goes P67 have delivered a solid EP here. The subtle synth elements that bind the aggressive qualities has worked over the six tracks but they may want to mix it up just a little bit more by the time that full length comes just to avoid the risk of repetition, with tracks facing being lost among themselves, but, all in all there’s nothing to suggest they can’t follow PARKWAY DRIVE out from down-under and on to a wider audience. Metalcore-blimey she's a lil' ripper!
