"After an encore the set still seemed a little short - or maybe, like many others, this reviewer was just enjoying it so much they didn't want it to end."

Hand Of Mercy's Josh Campiao has jumped ship to a band they've toured with
Your favourite hardcore and metalcore bands just with some ‘Straya flavour
It’s a hard thing to replace the vocalist to which most of your fan base has become accustomed to hearing. But in the case of Sydney’s Hand Of Mercy, they’ve made the right choice in recruiting Nick Bellringer to fill the shoes of former frontman, Scott Bird. The former Take Us To Vegas bassist tracked his parts for the band’s new album earlier this year. This November will see the quintet take on a massive run of national dates with fellow UNFD buddies, Hellions, and Melbourne upstarts, Void Of Vision, in support of their third album, ‘Resolve’. Killyourstereo.com spoke with the new vocalist to talk about how he got the job, the new album and their upcoming tour.
The hardcore fellas will be very busy this November
Scott Bird departs hardcore band
Sydney’s Hand of Mercy have enjoyed a massive rise in recent times. Last year’s well-received studio album ‘Last Lights’ was vindication of a band moving in the right direction. 2013 already looks to be even bigger. Killyourstereo.com sat down recently with guitarist Josh Campio to discuss the band’s upcoming European tour, their spot at next month's Push Over fest…and Taylor Swift records.
All in all, Last Lights is a solid release and a welcome addition to the genre.
Another quality Australian release
