Bristol based post-hardcore four piece, Svalbard have fought tooth and nail for every bit of deserved reverence they now hold in the UK and international metal and hardcore scenes. On their third album, ‘When I Die, Will It Get Better’ the band hone in on all the social and political rage of previous efforts and let their more melodious tendencies flourish at the front and centre. Fusing vulnerability and astute vitriol with post-rock esque guitar leads, black metal speed and neocrust urgency has never sounded quite so quintessential. If it was ever in doubt, now is the time to recognise Svalbard as one of the most important heavy bands of our time. Single 1 - Open Wound First single Open Wound, drenches the heavy metal foundations of the album in melancholic melody that pervades each and every effervescent track thereafter. The shimmering guitars lend an expansive and bittersweet sound to the songs, reminiscent of the likes of Envy, Alcest and Oathbreaker. Having polished up a few of the rougher edges found on earlier releases, the overall sound is one of a band hitting a more mature stride whilst retaining the vibrancy that makes them so unique, both live and on record.
