Shattered Skies
From: Dublin, Ireland
Lazy equation: Meshuggah + Dream Theater + TesseracT + you get it
URL: Facebook // Bandcamp

Thrash Hits verdict: This Irish quartet isn’t exactly new but they’re on the verge of doing something. Progressive metal or Djent or whatever you want to call it has become exceptionally popular over the last five years and Shattered Skies have a curiously melodic take on the genre. You won’t find many other unsigned bands that sound this good. Yes, they’re unsigned. We speak to guitarist, Ian Rockett.

EP: Wounds – Dead Dead Fucking Dead

Dead Dead Fucking Dead EP
29 March 2010

by Andy Parker

Dublin-based Wounds have whipped up a bit of a media storm of late. Currently being touted by some magazine fuckwits as ‘art-hardcore’ – presumably a combination of art house and hardcore punk (oh how do you do it!? I wish I could be as imaginative as you) – I prefer to think of them as exactly what they are – a bloody raging post-punk outfit reminiscent of Scratch Acid, Big Black and Drive Like Jehu, with a bit of the good bits from The Horrors chucked in for good measure.
