Why is it that every year an exceptional post-hardcore record emerges and blows me away? Last year was Polar and now I have been introduced to Fell To Low. This band hails out of SoCal and their music is hauntingly heavy and wonderfully aggressive. Fell To Low is currently streaming their new record Low In The Dust and it is amazing. Check it out below and let it take you. Continue reading
When I hear the words “hardcore newcomer,” I immediately get excited. As this is my favorite genre of music, I delve deep. Sometimes this phrase gets tossed around and sometimes it hits the nail on the head. I’m not sure where I stand on Ghost Key just yet because only one song is working on the stream of their new EP The Things I Am Not. Not sure if it’s just my playback, but I hope it gets resolved because I am curious what the rest of the EP sounds like.

In related news, it looks like Cave In‘s future is uncertain according to frontman Stephen Brodsky. His comments are as follows:
“I think the trickiest thing with Cave In is that we haven’t put out a record in like four years so I think for that band there’s a real sort of thriving element to being creative and just sort of playing shows without having a new record to sort of promote or even a label behind us- like as of now Cave In technically doesn’t have even a label. Cave In is just sort of at this stationary point where we’re not quite sure what the next move is or if there is one at this point.”
Shit. How have I been sleeping on Cut Up? I mean, it’s not like this band is on some nobody label, it’s on fucking Metal Blade!
