Just the very mention of the words metallic hardcore will have most metalheads over the age of 35 scratching their head in confusion; is it metal? Is it hardcore punk? Is it metalcore? Before declaring, nope, don’t like it! However, those of the younger generations will know this genre well, the breakdowns, the oft clean and harsh vocal dynamic and of course, THE WALL OF DEATH!! One band who are stepping back into the ring are Second Wind who have released their sophomore EP ‘Reclamation’.

                What Second Wind have delivered here with ‘Reclamation’ is an EP which sticks thoroughly to the guns, it is the sound of a band firing on all cylinders as they smash through a typical metallic hardcore sound that manages to encompass large elements of metalcore. This means that tracks such as ‘Find the Cure’ and ‘Obsidian’ roar (rawr?) with all the power of The Ghost Inside and Belmont whilst opening the floor to a wide demographic also appealing to the likes of Climates and While She Sleeps whilst the later albums of The White Noise are also touched on.

                ‘Reclamation’ shows Second Wind hammering it down and consolidating their sound. Yes, there is nothing here that metallic hardcore fans will not have heard already, but Second Wind are doing it well and it’ll be interesting to see how this band choose to tackle a full-length studio album.
