An original take on the metalcore sound, we reckon.
The challenge for bands making a style of music that’s characterised by definitive things – breakdowns, riffs and screams being a few of them – is legitimately sounding original. Fortunately, this Illinois metalcore five-piece sound more like they’ve created their own sound about halfway through their third record – whether it’s thrashier influences on ‘Silver Linings’ or lyrics that casually rip the piss out of their genre in ‘In Light Of Me’, it’s a refreshing listen. The latter song also marks their knack for a fluid, start-to-finish song, which sets them apart from your typical breakdown / melodic chorus / breakdown metalcore band. Good job.
Things have happened this week. Important things, like Bring Me The Horizon releasing a new song and the supports being announced for the Rock Sound Christmas Ball. Some quite funny, incredibly unimportant stuff happened too. Like this lot.
