Massachusetts-based Defeater is a band that plays by their own rules; they write narrative songs about fictional characters, release concept albums, mix melodic hardcore with acoustic ballads - all the while tapping into issues such as social awareness and environmental activism. Defeater's third full-length continues the complex, comprehensive storytelling found in their prior releases through Derek Archambault's screaming and soaring vocals. "Letters Home" is the band's most mature effort yet, while remaining true to their genre-defying roots.
Caspian is a post-rock band with a massively dense sound. Caught inside a vortex of bulky strumming and melodic polyphonies, silence barely finds its way out, and when it does, it is hastily passed over. This way, Casbian manages to create countless musical climaxes.
These melodic hardcore boys are in it for real. Their tracks roll out like thunder at night. Simple beautiful music that occasionally explodes into intense anger. Do not miss out on them.
Goodtime Boys are an English emo/screamo band with moody musical landscapes set to a slow-burning pace. They are more in step with La Dispute, Pianos Become The Teeth or Suis La Lune - all bands recognised for their dynamism and precision.
