Blending the elements of hardcore and deathcore is only going to result in a pretty damn heavy concoction, and that’s exactly the case with Swindon band TYRANTS who offer up what they describe as “stupidly heavy slams.”
Describing themselves as “not for the faint-hearted,” Swindon’s Heriot offer up a violent assault on your earholes with a crushing hardcore sound.
My formative years of rock and metal were largely shaped by bands that emerged from the Welsh valleys in the early 2000s. Exciting quartet Raiders are a band that’s well and truly taking on the mantle some 20 years later, having also been a part of that original Welsh scene.
If, like us, you never grew out of your emo phase then you’re very much in luck with exciting Yorkshire band Realms. The quintet have honed a sound that transports us to the good old post-hardcore and emo days of the early 2000s or, as they put it, “music for people who never grew out of their emo phase.”
If you’ve been pining after a bit of angsty, hard-hitting British metal then Essex newcomers When Nothing Works well and truly have you covered. They’ve honed a heavy, yet engaging metalcore sound that fuses powerful vocals and lyrics with big riffs and pounding rhythms.
