I Killed The Prom Queen
When Goodbye Means Forever (Hand of Hope)

By: Mike SOS

The difference between the cleverly named I Killed the Prom Queen and the countless other metalcore bands being signed today? For starters, this quintet hails from Adelaide, Australia, not Southern California. And from there? Well, the outfit's 11-track release, while not so much different than Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold, and the rest of the lot, does hit as hard as the aforementioned groups, and does showcase its chugging guitar chops quite nicely on tracks like "Upon a River's Sky" and does become surprisingly melodic on "Death Certificate for a Beauty Queen". Otherwise, besides the Croc Dundee accents, lump these grizzled, growling Aussies away from Jet and closer to bands like Bleeding Through and Eighteen Visions.
