Northern lads Beyond Betrayal sent over their latest offering ‘Scott’s got a time machine (He told me tomorrow)’, the other day for us to check out. From their latest release ‘Money Can’t Save You Now’, a five track E.P which this track holds much promise for. Opening with seriously heavy, downtuned beatdown, the song progresses through tight djenty sections and more free groovy choruses, not lacking on the heavy one bit. It’s interesting to see how the band’s definition of themselves - ‘Melodic Hardcore/Deathcore/Metalcore’ shines through in this track without seeming like these guys were trying too hard to hit all the targets at once. Brutality mixed with grooviness and an interesting ability to break seamlessly into open sections make for a very convincing track. Sure, as a big fan of melodic hardcore, I’d have liked to see these guys embellish upon the elements of the genre I picked up on, but it’s no loss to what is a thoroughly decent tune.
