For a long time now Relentless have been a driving force in Australian Hardcore. They have shared the stage with some pretty big international names, as well as trekking around the country on a regular basis to show their fans what they are made of. January this year marked the release of the bands new album ‘Turn The Curse’, and to promote the album, the band are currently off playing a heap of shows all over the place. We have no doubt that Turn the Curse is going to be sitting up there come album of the year voting time, and the guys have set a high benchmark for everyone in Australian Hardcore to live up to. Relentless are an incredibly hard working band, and we saw it only fitting that they be rewarded with the honour of being named our Chucking a Mosh Band of The Month for February.

Few Australian hardcore bands have achieved the renown and respect of their peers that Relentless have. Their hard work touring both nationally and internationally since the release of their debut demo in 2006 has paid off, and the Sydney quartet have just released their second full-length, Turn The Curse, on 25 January 2013.

Following a national support slot on Trapped Under Ice’s second Australian tour earlier this year, Relentless decided to return to the studio, this time deciding to take a step up and source outside production help. Enter Nick Jett (Terror, Piece By Piece) into the picture, not only to produce the record in Sydney, but also to track and mix the final product.
Relentless and Nick hit the studio for a bit over two weeks of gruelling recording at the end of June, where the whisper is that that final result will be a follow up of pure hardcore gold With plans of a January release here in Australia, the band already have an extensive touring schedule planned from release until June 2013.

“This is by far our best work to date with the strongest line up Relentless has had,” said vocalist Trent Baldock of the album. “I think we all knew it was time to step up, not just with the riffs and the lyrical writing, but with the structure of the songs as well. That’s why we brought Nick Jett in to produce. Being able to actually take the time to take a step back and listen to what we had written, and trying to perfect it before we laid the tracks in the studio with Nick was a new experience and a huge learning curve for us.”

Almost three years in the works, the end result of Turn The Curse is an album that not only goes beyond the expectations of the band, but will set the benchmark for hardcore releases in 2013.
