Manchester, UK alt-rock band Amongst Wolves have launched a suicide awareness campaign that is not your typical campaign.
Trying to pinpoint exactly who German rock band Arson sounds like is no easy task. Put together a seamless blend of alternative rock (a la 12 Stones), classic rock (Theocracy and Stryper), symphonic rock (Red and Starest), and a dash of just straigh up metal, and you have the sound that Arson produces in their single "In Too Deep." While there is still refinement to be had in the sound, the overall delivery hits in all the right places.
Then It Ends rips through their eleven-track album with a ferocity that will leave you breathless while at the same time getting lodged into your brain with their ability to bring melody into a seamless balance.
The latest single from As We Are is an incredibly hard hitting piece that sees their sound shift from a punk/easycore sound to something more in line with hardcore/hard rock.
James Franchise, a solo artist from New York, has been making a name for himself by taking worship songs and giving them a metalcore spin.
The Protest constructed a fantastic bridge between Great Lengths (2014) and Legacy (2018) with their latest single, "Greater."
In Dawn, Wolves at the Gate flex their creative muscle and display a musical dexterity that is a rarity in this scene.
All in all, The Path is a solid entry for a band that has perfected their sound and nailed down their songwriting. When the narrative of tearing down what puts us in positions of desperation (whether it’s destructive thoughts or inconsistent behaviors), holding on to the bonds we make, and fighting to find commonality and connection with others is considered, this is one of Fit For a King's more positive outings.
This is a band that produces albums that do not sound the same from start to finish. From the themes to the sonic changes in the instrumentation, Silent Planet keeps listeners on their toes.
