A Few Things to Check Out…
Posted by Reggie
I wish we had time to talk about every band/artist that gets sent to us. Unfortunately, time is not always on our side despite our finest efforts. But, we do our best to spread the word because no one should be deprived of metal in whatever metal subgenre it comes in. Here are a few bands we checked out that may or may not find a home in your music library someday.
Have you ever thought about what Maroon 5 would sound like with growling vocals? Neither have I. Honestly, I never knew such a thing existed. Personally, I can’t really stand Maroon 5, but hearing someone else metalize it puts a new spin on it. The Persevering Promise currently has their debut album out called An Illusion in Shambles. If you are into genre labels, they are considered post-hardcore, but it would be hard to tell from the cover song, so I included another song from their album.
Shifting to hard rock, Everlit is poised to release an EP around June 20th, 2015. The Philadelphia-based band released their first lyric video for your general consumption below. Have a listen…
It’s nice to know the music video isn’t totally dead. Michigan-based Darling Down used Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino as influences for their interesting video. Their album, Never Tell, is out now…released in July 2014.
Is there such a thing as melodic metalcore? Just Like Gentlemen aim to prove so. Their video Whorecrux is from their latest album Asylum is featured here for your viewing. The album was just released in April 2015. Fans of Chelsea Grin might take interest in this one. Check it out.
This one has been out a while and if you haven’t seen it, it’s worth the time. It’s a cover of Institutionalized from Suicidal Tendencies. ‘Nuff said, really!
Lastly, My Grimace, from Finland is rounding out this list of things we either missed or things that are coming up soon. Grim Serenades is out on May 8, from Inverse Records. Have a listen to their melodic death metal cadence with Dire Need featured below. Enjoy!
