August Burns Red - ‘Phantom Anthem’ Cover

Seeing how they’re one of the most innovative and technically crushing bands in modern metalcore, a new August Burns Red album is always something to be relished.

The band’s eighth full-length is another decadent smorgasbord of fret-mangling riffs, wall-toppling breakdowns and brain-frying experimentation – and it’s unlike anything other bands in this scene have attempted.

‘Phantom Anthem’ is an awful lot to stomach in one sitting, but those prepared to strap in and take the ride from guttural beginnings to dramatic conclusion will be rewarded with an album of intense grandeur and unmatchable ambition.
