Teenage sibling trio Speed of Light have honed a garage rock sound laced with punky undertones that’s probably going to take you by surprise in its ferocity. In fact, the Santa Monica, California, band’s dirty, riff-filled rock meets grunge meets desert rock sound is absolutely filthy as hell.
We’re kicking off the weekend with a brutal assault of intense progressive metal that fuses low-tuned guitars, funky melodies, powerful vocals and intriguing lyrics from Sweden’s Limbo.
Prepare to cast aside any preconceptions you might have of what ‘Christian music’ sounds like by exploring Australian Christian metalcore duo A Sight In Veracity.
Let us take you on a trip back to the good old days of 90s skate punk and punk rock with the fast-paced, catchy sound of US and UK digital music project Digital Feedback.
Nashville newcomers Lonelyouth offer up an exciting, diverse sound that sits somewhere between nu-metal, metalcore and melodic rock. They’ve honed a sound that offers plenty of aggression and its fair share of groove, with booming guitar riffs fused with powerful vocals engaging melodies.
Prepare to get your groove on with the superbly engaging sound of The Haunted North, who fuse raw, powerful vocals with big riffing and vicious driving rhythms.
We’ve featured a couple of ‘Internet bands’ in the past, but Beyond The Badlands is definitely one of the most interesting. The band was founded in January by guitarist and songwriter Cuda Smith, who’s currently stationed in Germany and spends six months of the year deployed with the military which leaves him another six months to hone his brand of southern rock.
Emerging from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Calgary band Greybeard offer up a delicious fusion of metal influences, from black metal and death metal to atmospheric and progressive elements.
How would you feel about revisiting songs or even things you thought or ranted about 21 years ago? Personally, I think it’s best not to even contemplate visit 15-year-old me’s thoughts. However, that’s exactly what brilliantly named Los Angeles rock band Flammable Animal (try saying that three times) are doing with their recently released debut EP that transports us back to our formative music days of the 1990s.
Atlanta duo Breakthrough Even may have been unlikely candidates to become a hard-hitting metal band. Twins Josh and Zach Turner freely admit to being “massive nerds playing video games all the time” as kids, but the discovery of Linkin Park’s debut album changed all of that.
Parisian band ODC have honed a diverse rock sound that draws on modern metal and alternative metal influences. Led by the superb vocals of frontwoman Celia Do, the band complements them with booming riffs, powerful drums and an almost industrial instrumental sound.
We love a Scandinavian band here at GigRadar, but Norwegian band Frostbite offer up something they describe as “significantly different” to most new bands from their homeland.
