Verona – We The Hunted [Single Review]

Posted in 'Core, CD with tags , , , , on 25th September 2011 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Band: Verona
Single: We The Hunted
Genre: Melodic Post-Hardcore
Release year: 2011

”We the Hunted” is the latest single by Newcastle based hardcore sextet Verona. Straight away, the song is an aggressive and pounding assault on the ears of the listener. The vocals are raw, violent and savage keeping that hint of brutality when the melodic riffs are played. The clean vocals are very distinct and unique compared to a lot of hardcore bands that use clean vocals. The drums are well played throughout the song though seem to lack in sections. Another issue with the song is the sound quality during in some of the vocal sections, making the vocals sound extremely distorted and inaudible. The synths add a very different sound to the song as well, whilst not clashing with the hardcore sound of the track. “We The Hunted” is certainly different to a lot of hardcore-orientated songs but still retains the hardcore stylings of Verona. If their next EP or album is anything like “We The Hunted”, then we’ll all be in for a treat.
