Mindsnare Essentials

Apple Music

Angry and chaotic, and with a love for songs as brief as a muscle spasm, Melbourne's Mindsnare push hardcore punk to the brink of metal without spilling over. The blurred riffs and zigzagging arpeggios stuffed into 2004's “To the Boil” are played with the flash and precision of a metal shredder, while “The Death” shows how the vocals can leap from boot-stomping barks to blackened screams and guttural moans. These stylistic tweaks run throughout their catalogue, but their roots are evident: “The Fall Back” unleashes surging tempos and brawler breakdowns that can only be described as hardcore.
