In the modern age of short attention spans, it is refreshing to see some bands still operating by the tried and true laws of yesteryear when it comes to releasing music.

With EP’s and singles all the rage, Perth metal outfit All This Filth elected to take their time with their recently released album Tomorrow Will Be Better?, dropping the first single Still Bleeds My Heart in late 2022 and drip-feeding more tunes until the album saw the light of day on February 9 this year.

“We wanted to really test ourselves and push ourselves and see what we can do musically.”

Brendan Preston

To simply class All This Filth as metal would be short-changing them significantly. Drawing on everything from Groove Metal, Thrash, Hardcore, Death Metal, Industrial Metal and even hints of Sludge and Nu-Metal, the Perth outfit deftly wind them all together to produce a sound fresh, vibrant and heavy as Hell.

Released on the band’s new US label Brutal Records, Tomorrow Will Be Better? is a coming of age of sorts for All This Filth, cementing them amongst the next wave of Australian metal bands and opening up a plethora of new opportunities for the band.

HEAVY caught up with vocalist Brendan Preston and bass/keyboardist Benny Bones to find out more, starting with the album’s reception.

It’s going well so far,” Preston smiled. “We’ve had a lot of good feedback, like the reviews have been generally positive and all the fans I’ve spoken to and all the messages I’ve got from the band’s social media have been good so far. All the media that we’ve been speaking to have seemed to enjoy the songs as well. I was on Andrew Haug on Monday night, and he was saying it’s a definite step-up for us and that he was proud of us, which was really cool praise. So far, so good. The feedback has been unanimously good.”

We ask the boys to tell us more about the album musically.

“Musically, we just really wanted to step it up from the last album, Misery Season,” Preston began. “Sort of just expand the boundaries of what we were doing. We wanted to be more aggressive, more fast, more groovy, add more keys and synths – which is more Benny’s department – and really just test ourselves and push ourselves and see what we could do musically.”

In the full interview, Brendan and Benny talk more about Tomorrow Will Be Better?, how it picks up thematically from last album Misery Season, how they pushed the boundaries, the overall message of the album, the new members and what they bring to the band’s sound, signing with Brutal Records and what that opens up for the band, how their sound has grown over the course of their releases, finding the balance between so many genres and more.
