Harnessing the high energy of hair metal and groove metal, Pittsburgh band A Common Crown have honed a catchy yet heavy sound led by engaging vocals and plenty of big riffing.
Canadian electronic rock duo Normal Machine are the perfect band for the crazy times we’re living in, as they refuse to prescribe to the modern, happy-go-lucky songwriting culture of popular music.
Brazilian trio The Damnnation offer up a fast-paced, energetic blast of heavy, thrashy metal that is chocked full of big riffs and whiplash-inducing rhythms.
We’ve not featured too many Portuguese bands on the site over the last few years, but from the sound of Porto’s Three Of Me we’ve definitely been missing out.
We’ve come to realise that Arizona is somewhat of a haven for awesome metal bands and we’ve unearthed another in the form of deathcore meets melodic metal newcomers Wyrmhaven.
We’re willing to bet that you’ve never listened to or even heard of a rock or metal band – or any music for that matter – from United Arab Emirates before. But, we’re expanding the GigRadar compass into a 45th country with Dubai-based Wake Up Karma.
Long Island, NY rockers Karma Versa fuse a multitude of musical backgrounds and influences – including beginning life as an R’n’B band, which we’ll just about forgive them for – in their post-hardcore meets alternative rock sound.
Make the mistake of Googling “Panic Attack! On The Train” and you’ll join us in being put off going within 100 yards of any public transport service again for the rest of your life. However, listening to Norwegian band Panic Attack!’s latest track On The Train is a far more pleasurable experience.
Yesterday, we brought you a Russian band who attest to create the Devil’s music, and today we’re bringing you a Baltimore band called Devil In Disguise. Despite that, we promise you that the enforced lockdown hasn’t suddenly transformed us into Satan worshippers!
You often here people who aren’t fans of metal lazily denigrate the genre as “the Devil’s music.” Well, in this case, they’d be absolutely correct. The main source of inspiration for Russian band KVLTMOR is the Diabolica Quimbanda, a sinister Occult black magic tradition that dates back to the forgotten bowels of human history.
Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Emily Mitchell has honed a diverse sound that was born out of folk-rock and influenced by pop-punk and various pop and rock styles. And the singer refuses to be bound to one genre as she pursues her solo project.
St. Louis five-piece This Is Falling have honed an intriguing sound that tows the line between metal and post-hardcore with elements of industrial, electronic sounds and 80s influences. And they’re definitely the first band to reference Top Gun as a musical influence to us.
