With the release of their debut full-length The Dark Pool in 2019, Melbourne five-piece Thornhill romped in their status as Australia’s fastest rising metalcore outfit. Spawning dynamic singles ‘Nurture’, ‘Where We Go When We Die’ and ‘In My Skin’, The Dark Pool saw Thornhill seize a knockout brand of modern heavy, and scoop up an impressive amount of praise along the way for it.
The album landed the coveted Feature Album slot on triple j and debuted at #20 on the ARIA Album Charts after the first week of release. Rock Sound classed the release as an “absolute metalcore triumph” and Depth Magazine dished out a phenomenal 10/10 rating and classed it their record of the year. On the live front, the band sold out their headline album tour to rabid crowds, and kicked off 2020 with another sold out European tour supporting Wage War.
