Having utterly obliterated the stages at UK Tech-Fest, Deadbolt and Mosh On The Tyne, as well as sharing the stage with the likes of Martyr Defiled and Heritage, Borders have upped the ante even more with Diagnosed, creating an even more ominous and demonic presence. Diagnosed is a short release but apt in its meaning, symbolically referencing drugs, mental health, pharmaceutical companies governed by billion-dollar corporate industries, media manipulation and corruption with unique twists and messages in the lyrics. This delves deeper into personal stories and tragedies, which when factored into the already ferocious music, suggests the fire of Borders has only just been lit.
