Narc. Magazine Online

Reliably informed

A debut release from a welcome addition to the North East’s always-thriving metal scene, All Before are a visceral metalcore five-piece in thrall to the hallowed wonders of Drop-D, Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive.

Breaking Away is a hell of an introduction to make, unafraid to tackle the weighty subject of depression head-on with the creative use of two simultaneous narratives: with a bleak outlook on the matter being offset and outweighed by an optimistic shot of hope and perseverance, serving as a reminder that there is always hope even in the darkest of times. It’s a bold and courageous opening transmission from a quintet with a tonne of promise, with a strong side-dose of melodic and glorious riffage.
