Introducing: Coldharbour

Tampa Bay and Cincinnati-based collective Coldharbour offer exactly that in a brutal melodic deathcore meets metalcore sound they describe as “aggressive, melodic and emotional.”

Introducing: Rogue

Rogue offer up a progressive metalcore sound that fuses pummelling guitars, a mix of clean and screamed vocals and immersive soundscapes, which they describe as “energetic, atmospheric and thought-provoking.”

Introducing: Raven Tooth

We love a good one-man metal band and that’s exactly what we have from Florida newcomers Raven Tooth. The Orlando-based outfit offers us a no-nonsense, hard-hitting metal sound that also provides elements of hard rock, punk and hardcore.

Introducing: Darkenside

Washington band Darkenside joke that they sound like “a stadium rock band that plays breakdowns.” But it’s an apt description of a riff-heavy yet melodic modern metalcore approach that they describe as “powerful, energetic, and emotional.”

Introducing: Common Choir

Minnesota metalcore meets hardcore band Common Choir have honed an intense sound that offers something for all listeners to connect with and they describe as “honest, aggressive and energetic.”
