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.
February was a good month for gigs, wasn't it?. We hopped over to New York to see Escape The Fate and Falling In Reverse bury the hatchet, A Day To Remember brought their ridiculous House Party show to London, and the Rock Sound Impericon Exposure tour got properly underway.
