|4.5 superb||Alabaster Jones | December 4th 16|
I found out about Svalbard last year with their enthralling debut One Day All This Will End, a passionate and explosive display of melodic hardcore with some of the best songwriting in the genre today. Released in late October, Discography 2012-2014 does what it says on the tin and compiles all of their work before their full-length debut. It's a massive, evocative, beautiful work of some of the best written and produced melodic hardcore that this decade has to offer, due in no small part to the unbridled passion and charged emotion that drips from every pore of the compilation. Most songs are incredibly melodic, intense and uplifting, with a bevy of tremolos, seamless blast beats, and impassioned shouts peppering the songs. Other songs play hardcore a bit more conventionally and pack a humongous punch while doing so, while others still have some melancholic post-rock interludes and intros that give a break from the intensity while still remaining emotionally invested. All this said, if you're looking for some ace melodic hardcore, Svalbard is more than worth checking out and keeping your eye on.
