“This dream I chase is all I see. They say it’s all in futility. Can’t seem to find where I belong.”
Affinity Minus Perfection (Previously known as A.M.P) is a metalcore/post-hardcore band hailing from Rockhampton QLD.
They released their debut EP back in July 2016 and have been touring quite a lot since.
Playing such shows as Brisbane's "Shredfest" in 2016, the Australian wide "Metal United Down Under" and have also been lucky enough to open for The Amity Affliction along with Ocean Grove and Hellions on the Gympie leg of the “Death to Misery” tour.
The film clip for this song well produced with an awesome “shaky” camera in some parts, along with a slow motion hair whip shot of singer Hayden; which looks great!
On my first listen of this song, after the first minute I thought this is a great song but what it needs is some clean vocals... then BAM! In comes the clean vocals by guitarist Simon in the chorus that reminds you of some early I Killed The Prom Queen and just lifts the song up to a whole other level.
'Intention Subversion' is the kind of song that you can really bang your head to. The breakdown is straight up heavy and makes you want to unleash in to a circle pit but then calms back down in to a nice clean part that builds up to the last chorus.
While this may be the first time I have heard these guys, it definitely won’t be the last and I look forward to hearing what else they have in store for us in the future.
Would You Go And See Them (WYGAST) 5/5
Personal Enjoyment: 8/10
