Fresh from signing to UNFD Australian metallic hardcore band Cursed Earth released the Cycles of Grief Volume 1: Growth EP on the 4th August. This EP sees the group display a true understanding of the various styles of heavy music, whilst maintaining a thematic consistency based around the darker aspects of life.

The EP has a distinct hardcore feel to it with the 5 tracks hovering at around a total of ten minutes in length. Opening song War March has a relatively slow build considering the song length. The pounding drums and bass add to the building aggression coupled with the almost tortured style vocals it is a great introduction to the EP. Broken feeds off the build on War March and is instantly rattling through at a faster pace. Broken feels a lot like a release from the tenser start that was War March. With the opening two tracks being released as a joint video it is no surprise to see them fit so well together in the context of the EP.
