Vices - 2013 - Between My Mind And The World

Vices are a five piece hardcore punk band from Sydney, Australia. Between My Mind And The World
 is their debut LP. They play a brand of hardcore punk that very much reminds me of Touche Amore with more chug. The singer has a very emotional, desperate shout and the guitars jam out a catchy melodic hardcore base.

Most of these songs are pretty straight forward melodic hardcore songs but every so often one of the songs catches fire, Part.1, with it's slowburn, Home and Destinations are good examples of when the emotionality comes to the forefront, nudging them towards that boundary line between hardcore and screamo. If you like fast, emotional hardcore that isn't afraid to show it's scars then album will be right up your alley
