It’s clear that this EP is designed for radioplay, as each song pushes catchiness to the forefront. But the heavy hooks -work reminds me of Ash back in the early to mid-‘00s, with the ability to produce memorable hooks and still unleash hard-hitting riffage. I’d just like to see how heavy Tirade can push themselves without losing that infectious side to them. I feel that the Manchester-born band can go to even further extremes to really capitalise on their influences. Be catchier, be heavier — because at the moment, it’s really good, but could even be great.

For the fans of: Ash, Lower Than Atlantis, Don Broco
