Prepare to taken on a journey through the murky waters of deathcore brutality with intense French band Hurakan.
We’ve not featured too many bands from New Zealand (only six in five years!) but those we have featured have all been superb. And there’s no letting down on that front with the stunning metalcore sound of Full Bloom, which they describe as being “honest, heavy and instinctual.”
In five years of running GigRadar, we’ve only previously featured two bands from Africa. But we’ve found another in the thrilling melodic rock sound of largely Johannesburg-based HeadFury, who summarise themselves as “three super sexy dudes making killer tunes just for fun.”
Ohio synth-infused metalcore band Starless will certainly keep you on your toes with a heavy sound that’s approachable and relatable, fusing vicious vocals with catchy choruses and melodies.
Hertfordshire metal newcomers The Best Medicine have honed a powerful but engaging fusion of blues-fuelled rock and metal in a sound they describe as “bluesy, ballsy and boozy.”
Danish trio Wars Apart come at us spitting and screaming out of Copenhagen with a no-holds barred, no limits approach and seriously aggressive modern hardcore sound.
Melbourne-based quartet Colour & Shade hope to offer a bit of something for everyone, fusing hardcore influences with driving riffs and big hooky choruses in a sound they describe as “honest, driven and meaningful.”
San Francisco band Final Boss offer up a feisty and infectious fusion of metal genres with a heavy leaning on post-hardcore, which they describe as being “Post-Hardcore fun riffage.”
Danish band Taking Flight offer up a heavy riff-driven sound that fuses classic rock and high-paced punk influences.
They may have the longest band name we’ve ever featured on the site but rock meets melodic metal newcomers Jason Payne & The Black Leather Riders are giving us plenty more to get excited about.
If you’re looking for indie meets punk rock that’s upbeat, hard-hitting and generally a lot of fun then exciting Glasgow rockers The Riot Vans are just the band for you.
London duo CRASHFACE slap you round the face with their vicious riffs then deliver a couple of knockout punches with intense industrial elements and wild vocals.
