The Color Morale - Know Hope Cover

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.
