I'm a simple man, if I see a Metalcore cover of a Linkin Park track... I dive in head first.
I've missed our Awesome Covers series, and I know more than a handful of you have also because you've told us, well I have a treat for you guys today. Last week a band that I've been following on social media for ages but hadn't featured yet, Moment of Madness, gave us the heads up that they were dropping a Metalcore version of the Linkin Park classic 'In The End', and the rest of that week was one of the longest times in my life.
The column where you can discover the best new artists of the moment is back with its third edition, because there is no greater feeling than starting to listen to someone when they're underground and then see them succeed. That's why here we are trying very hard to give the most notable musicians out now a launching pad where they can be seen by a wider, international audience.
So it's time to open your Spotify and get ready to save your next favourite act from the ones we have selected for you this month.
Italy, why are you hiding these awesome bands from us?
One of our recent discoveries, the Italian band from Turin, Hot Sunday Blood, have created their own and very distinctive version of Alt/ Heavy Rock, thanks to each member of the five piece having quite different backgrounds. Their current sound fuses Metal, Stoner, Grunge, Black Metal, Prog and even New Wave.
Deathcraeft is a band created in 2017 by Kostas Kalampokas (Guitar, Bass), who after founding a recording studio in Ioannina, Greece, and producing albums for various bands, brought together Giannis Chionidis (Drummer of Prog Death band Echidna) and Nikonas Tsolakos on vocals.
DREAMEATER helps prove that British Metalcore is world beating.
Andover in the UK isn't known for much, other than being one of the towns near Stonehenge, but with any luck it will become famous as the birthplace of DREAMEATER, the Post Metalcore four piece who only just released their debut EP Bleed on Friday the 14th of August. And on that EP is today's Track of the Week, the truly brutal 'Shatter'.
