ONE HIDDEN FRAME/THOUSAND OAKS – Antipodes Split EP

ONE HIDDEN FRAME/THOUSAND OAKS – Antipodes Split EP

AntipodesDisconnect Disconnect Records have released the new split EP between two of Europe’s finest skatepunk /melodic hardcore bands: Finland’s One Hidden Frame and Italy’s Thousand Oaks.

The first two songs on this split EP are delivered by One Hidden Frame and the band open with March 18th, where complex math-punk segments mingle with post hardcore and skate-punk sections that power along with melodic vocals, machine gun drums, super guitar work to create a wall of sound that just works. The second track from One Hidden Frame  is Quicksand and if you were expecting a slow, trudging effort, you’ll be disappointed as, after an elongated introduction, this one moves at 250mph with incredible drums supporting soaring vocals and rollicking riffs…phew!

The second half of the EP is delivered by Thousand Oaks. The band offer up Echoes Of A Dreadful Past as their first track and the complimentary approach to their release mates is evident with the math-punk, machine gun drums and melodic vocals prominent although the song is more relentless in style with the vocals full of angst throughout.

The EP concludes with Born To Play War and the complex interplay of guitar riffs and licks with the drums and bass creates elements of math-punk and post hardcore sounds. The backing vocals add yet more layers to the song and the band seal the deal with some intricate guitar and drum work that both engages and amazes!

This is solid release by two bands at the top of their game and will delight you post-hardcore/math-punk geeks!
