Putting the heart and the heaviness back into post-hardcore
This Swedish quintet dole out aggression, passion and catchiness in equal measures. Adept’s fourth full-length brings new levels of confidence and maturity, and some very solid songwriting.
The tangle of rage and beauty of Dark Clouds is immediately addictive, while Wounds and Carry The Weight are infused with memorable, singalong choruses. The second half of the album is a touch heavier, The Choirs Of Absolution dialling up ferocious growls and mathcore fretwork, and then throwing a choir in the mix to further heighten the sense of euphoria.
