Homewrecker - Hell Is Here Now

I love seeing the bands I came up with going to house shows and the like going on to take on the world. The wonderfully apocalyptic madness of Homewrecker has never been an exception to this and their gradual shift from straight up hardcore to something with quite a few death and thrash metal fringes has made them all the more inspiring. There is a bloodthirsty magic to the over the top and twisted majesty of this band, hinting at the power of this group and what they might be able to achieve on this, their third LP. 

It's been a long time since we've had a full length from these hard touring maniacs, and though we had a triumphant split and a stellar EP in 2016 it still feels nice to get to hear the band have the space to really breathe. The growth into something far more metal than their origins is clear here, but it's still never too hard to hear the hardcore kids who exist inside this band and their passion for a genre that refuses to rise above the basements. The chaotic sensibility that ebbs and flows throughout Hell Is Here Now can't help but to impress and the deeper we delve into their sonic blasphemies the more we stray from the light. 

With this record it feels like Homewrecker are really starting to achieve their place in the world. The band has full come into their own and with this fully realized and wonderfully unique sound, fans across the globe are going to fall in love. This is the sort of wonderfully brutal and borderline terrifying music that I think so many of us get addicted too. Homewrecker embody the hardcore ethos from back to front and it makes for a band who you can't help but want to fall in love with time and time again.
