Runes Nu­clear Blast

Blunt - - In Review - TI­MOTHY HAWTHORNE

It’d be easy to shit on Bury To­mor­row for too closely mir­ror­ing our very own Park­way Drive, be­cause boy oh boy does front­man Daniel Win­ter- Bates love him­self those Win­ston- isms, yet there’s some­thing quite charm­ing about a Bri­tish group fly­ing the met­al­core flag and not at­tempt­ing to pla­gia­rise the big­ger- than- Je­sus Bring Me The Hori­zon. Openly em­brac­ing the Swedish guitar in­flu­ence and soar­ing cho­ruses that pop­u­larised the met­al­core aes­thetic some 10 or so years ago, the UK five- piece have struck a chord with fans at home and abroad, with Runes mak­ing a no­tice­able im­pres­sion on the UK’s main­stream chart upon its re­lease. A 50- minute cy­cle of riff, break­down, sing and re­peat may not cat­a­pult these guys to the same heights as some of their coun­try­men, but they seem happy to be do­ing their own thing any­way.
