Enter Shikari are one of those bands that never fails to excite me when they release new music, simply because they don't do the same thing twice and are always experimenting. It also helps that their lyrics are very political and thought provoking.
My first taste of the Belgium 'Core scene.
I had promised myself to try and limit the amount of Metalcore I review this year, you know, give the other genres a chance to impress me. I had even planned on doing something different this week, but then I heard 'Nemesis' from the Belgium band Moments and all that went out the window, for now at least.
The best advert YouTube could have showed me.
I listen to a lot of music, "obviously!" I hear you all screaming into your screens at once, but I really do. I have whatever I am reviewing at the time on constant loop, and when I'm working on other things, I've got either Spotify or YouTube on random trying to discover something new, which is what happened the other day when I first heard the German band Half Me and their second single 'Livebait'.
A case of loving the message, but despising the delivery...
Straight away, I need to say, this is not an extra Track of the Week, but just a review that I feel I needed to do.
A week ago today (4th of March for those of you reading in the future), Asking Alexandria dropped the 3rd single off their upcoming album Like A House On Fire, entitled 'Antisocialist'... and I hate it.
It's been ages since a song worked its way into my brain and refused to leave.
Despite the fact that The Amity Affliction is a huge name in the Metalcore world, I've never really listened to their music before. Sure, I've obviously heard the odd occasional track here and there, but I doubt I knew who they were at the time.
