Eurovision 2018: The Reviews – HUNGARY

Featured Video Play Icon

Viszlát Nyár (AWS)

BACKGROUND
Hungarian metal post-hardcore (which is a thing, apparently) band AWS was formed in 2006. Most of the information about them online is in Hungarian (which is also a thing, apparently) so I have no idea what AWS stands for, or whether it stands for anything – I imagine it is meaningless since that would be a very post-hardcore thing to do.

OFFICIAL VIDEO
Please tell me that’s real footage of the band members as children. Which was the one in the ski outfit? I’m not sure the juxtaposition of images quite works here, but points for trying. Or maybe they didn’t try – that would be very post-hardcore also.

EUROTRASHTIC LYRICS

Let’s be cruelly honest, my boat has to go and it will leave you here.

My blood will live within you and if you don’t sell it, the mark is on your heart, which lifts you up from the ground to the sky.

Goodbye summer, you missed me, ’cause you lied that you’ll be mine but you didn’t come!

Goodbye dream, I’m so thankful that you’re gone! Now it’s time to give me back what you took away from me!

The life has got tired in my veins, I know that you’d hold (me) but please, let me go.

Here it is, strip your part out of me and if you don’t sell it, the mark is on your heart, which lifts you up from the ground to the sky.

I had to publish the entire song because doing so is very post-hardcore. I totally need to work “my boat has to go and it will leave you here” into a conversation at some point. Also, “my blood will live within you” and “strip your part out of me and if you don’t sell it, the mark is on your heart, which lifts you up from the ground to the sky”. I doubt I can work all of these into the same conversation, but I’ll try. Because that would be utterly post-hardcore.

REVIEW
One thing I truly love about Eurovision is the diversity of genres. I am so hoping this makes the finals and that it follows that opera-robot from Estonia. That would be very post-hardcore.

RATING
B+
