LAST Thursday night, Thornhill opened for one of their idols.
“Playing with Architects was absolutely amazing, I mean, we’ve been listening to them since we were kids.” said Jacob Charlton, the bands’ frontman.
“We had already bought tickets to the show before we got the call.”
“My whole memory of it is just a blur.”
Whilst by no means a fully mainstream affair, metalcore, which combines elements of heavy metal with hardcore punk, is one of the strongest and most vibrant music scenes in Australia.
It regularly storms the charts and can be found adorning the walls and occupying speakers of many a teenage bedroom. Names like Parkway Drive, Northlane and Architects are heroes to many, including local group Thornhill.
