Holy shit! This band absolutely rips. Dark Horse is a four piece band from Sydney, Australia who formed in 2011, from the looks of things. Dark Horse play a brutal and vicious as hell style of music that incorporates elements of hardcore, punk, crust, d-beat, and grindcore within their sound. Dark Horse cite Captain Cleanoff,Tragedy,Black Jesus,Napalm Death,Lock
Up,Mindsnare,Dropdead,From Ashes Rise,Entombed,Bolt
Thrower,Discharge,Exploited, and Cripple Bastards as influences, which definitely shows up in the band's sound in style. Since forming in 2011, Dark Horse have released a six song self-titled demo in December of 2011, a seven song live EP titled Newtown Knockdown in February of 2013, a split 7" with Black Jesus in November of 2013, a twelve song LP titled Sick Of Living/High On Death in March of 2014, and a split EP with Inebrious Bastard in November of 2016. Bolt Thrower is the band's latest full-length LP, which was released via Grindhead records on February 9th, 2017. On Bomb Thrower, Dark Horse offer up twelve tracks of raging and brutal as fuck sounding hardcore, punk, crust, d-beat, and grindcore. Overall, Bolt Thrower makes for an amazing listen and should not be missed. Highly recommended! Enjoy! Seriously, I can't begin to describe how good this album is!
