The rapid ascent of Lorna Shore has been joyful to behold. Back in 2019, Kerrang! mused ‘Is deathcore dead?’ And in a somewhat shocking turn of events, it has come back harder, heavier and more powerful than ever. Since the New Jersey natives went viral on TikTok with squillions of people losing their collective shit to Will Ramos’ mind-boggling pig squeals, they have become metal’s most wanted band, having their spring UK tour venues constantly upgraded due to demand and pulling one of the largest crowds at this year’s Bloodstock. But can their much-anticipated fourth album live up to the hype? In a word: yes. In more words: yes, and it’ll rip your sodding throat out. Clocking in at just over an hour, the ferocious five-piece mine the depths of their blackened souls and draw out slab after slab of one of the most hellacious sounds this side of Beelzebub’s Watain covers band. Pummelling from the very get-go, the warring worlds of precision technicality and unbridled chaos intertwine into a brawling brutalist cacophony, refusing to pause for breath at any point.
