My Purifying Day’s crashing drums & building riff leads to a crescendo of thrashy metal with vocals that have a bit of early Hetfield mixed with flashes of a cleaner sound. The heavy beat drives the track on nicely with a smattering of melody & killer sounding breakdown adding a chaotic undertone.

An impressive opener that has the rawness of a garage band but far less production issues.

Following up that breathless start, The Climb has much deeper rhythm that’s weighted towards the bass & drums. That doesn’t stop it being an incredibly catchy & exciting tune especially when the vocals take on a more hardcore edge. The screeching has such power behind it, it really is startling stuff.

The three track EP comes to an end with the bone-crunching heaviness of the title track. Confirmation that Jumpscare have a hell of a lot of energy & talent. It’s easy to picture this music played in a live environment with a legion of fans going absolutely mental to the breakdowns.
