"Metalcore? A hackneyed, worn phrase. THE TOURIST bring this designation back to the site back then, bands like POISON THE WELL or Shai Hulud drove to the mischief. Slate singing? Authorized. A squint gen Sweden in the guitar work? Not yet. Values that energy? Yet traditionally rooted in hardcore. Nothing against this crossover as it has evolved in the last decade so, but THE TOURIST prove that there can be such a revival of the sound, which you then still called new school hardcore, quiet often.

But anyone who understands what mentioned references, this record should not place too quickly shelved. "
