Album Review: Departures (UK) – “Death Touches Us, From The Moment We Begin To Love”

For the longest time I didn’t know exactly what Post-Hardcore meant. Then I discovered bands that created music with heavy vocals and powerful instrumentation; it was some odd mix of spoken word poetry with music that I didn’t know existed, and it captivated me. This same sort of magic is strong in the new Departures album Death Touches Us, From The Moment We Begin To Love. What is to be expected is not really a ride, but an experience, for this work takes its time in its message, and makes it sink into the listener’s core.

New Death By Fungi (Mumbai, hardcore) EP available to stream via Unite Asia

Mumbai based post-hardcore group Death By Fungi have teamed up with Unite Asia to stream their new EP ahead of its general release later this month. The relatively young three-piece have one excellent EP and demo under their belts but their latest offering, “In Dearth Of” finds the band cementing the change in creative direction that was alluded to on their self-titled release. The record features four tracks ranging from the melodic to the flat-out brutal.

“In Dearth Of” starts out with balls-to-the-wall skatepunk riffery before settling  into anthemic melodic-hardcore on opener “Endless Rain”. Listeners would be forgiven for thinking that the tone of the EP had been set with this punchy harmonious number however track two quickly dispels such thinking with it’s crunchy ‘Converge-esque’ brutality. Andy Nelson (of Weekend Nachos fame) has done an exceptional job on the mix here capturing the power and urgency of Death By Fungi, as one might expect from such a connoisseur of all things heavy. The track “Black Lung” is simply put – a wall of noise. It’s abrasive and almost difficult to listen to but perseverance here is greatly rewarded as the outro is simply astonishing – the hairs of my arms are standing up just thinking about it. The next track “Iced” is another intense affair however it is broken up nicely with a super catchy melodious chorus. The song ends with singer, Vrish, screeching “this place doesn’t fucking need you” before dropping another exceptionally powerful outro upon the listener. “In Dearth Of” finishes with the track “Pathfinder” which rounds the release off perfectly. Here the animosity is scaled back somewhat in favour of a more reflective and introspective tone. It’s fittingly conclusional for the record’s finale and leaves the listener with a sense of resolution to the chaos that ensued previously.

Having been privileged enough to witness Death By Fungi deliver their new tracks live I can honestly say they are a band to have on your radar if you are a fan of hardcore without the sports jerseys and “bro-culture” usually associated with the genre and we look forward to hearing more from them in the future.

You can enjoy “In Dearth Of” in its entirety over at Unite Asia ahead of its official release date which is, at the time of publication, unknown.
