New album by The Red Shore; The Avarice of Man, is the iceberg that sinks Titanic’s, and not worth the mega-bytes of space on your computer. I’m going to keep this short and talk a bit about the bands past in order to create an atmosphere of sympathy.
The Red Shore is a deathcore/death metal outfit from Greelong, Victoria, Australia which started off in 2004 obtaining their style from bands such as Hate Eternal, Devourment, Decapitated and hints of Behemoth—just to give a blueprint of their musical influences. They released their first EP, Salvaging What’s Left, in 2006—which was phenomenal—and gained recognition throughout Australia and other nations. In late 2007 the band suffered a fatal accident when on tour and resulted in the loss of lead vocalist Damien Morris and roadie Andy Milner. Their bassist Jamie Hope stepped up and did vocals on their 2008 release of, Unconsecrated, and picked up Jon Green formerly of, Picture the End. Around 2009 Jamie Hope left the band leaving Jason Leombruni to be the last founding member. Now the get-up consists of, vocalist Chase Butler, guitarists; Jason Leobruni, Roman Koester, bassist Jon Green and Tim Shearman on the drums. (more…)
