Remember the best of season(ing)s with Good Thyme

Sweden might not be the first place you think of when you think of pop punk… Realistically, it probably isn’t even in the top ten.

But that’s about to change – Those Without are poised to take the scene by storm, having already received from Altpress, and music so catchy that plenty more is sure to follow.

The band’s first full length, Bittersweet, is set to drop in September, so be sure to stay tuned!

Danish act H.E.R.O. drop “Made To Be Broken”

As the first single for their upcoming third album, H.E.R.O. have gone all out. The song features a massive wall of sound that would sound at home on a modern Bring Me The Horizon record, as well as a catchy arrangement and powerful vocals.

For those who enjoy riffs and head banging, don’t worry; you won’t notice anything missing with this track!

If you aren’t familiar with H.E.R.O. yet, I suggest taking a listen to their most recent album, Bad Blood – and look forward to album #3 soon!

Gathering of Strangers shares “Antidote”

Indie rock has been pouring out of the UK for decades, with bands such as Arctic Monkeys, The 1975, and Catfish and the Bottlemen showcasing their country’s talent.

But, there’s always the next band brewing in the UK that has a shot to reach international success like the bands mentioned above. My money’s on Gathering of Strangers, a five piece formed in Manchester, but consisting of members from all over the country.

The band have just released “Antidote”, a powerful and anthemic song reminding the listener that they can get out of the struggles they face in life.

Take a listen to the track below and let us know what you think!

Vibe with the gritty pop rock of Halflives

A pop rock song really has to hit me just the right way to pique my interest – a combination of catchy hooks, distorted guitars, and a gritty attitude.

French act Halflives have managed to do just that with their latest track, “Vibe”. Co-producer Elliot Polokoff, of the band Cemetary Sun, skillfully blended rock riffs and a massive beat with electronic elements to help push the song forward.

The passionate, fed up lyrics blend so perfectly with the song to create a cohesive journey that ends far too soon.

Listen to the song below, and make sure to watch the video for the song which premieres on YouTube at 3PM EDT on April 15th!

Omaha could be the next city known for their post hardcore

When music fans think of Omaha, NE, they might think of bands like Bright Eyes or 311… Bands who while extremely talented, aren’t on the cutting edge of music.

But Immunizer may just change that – the post-hardcore band would fit right in on a modern rock tour, such as Warped Tour. In fact, I can’t help but imagine that the band has been influenced by Pierce the Veil and Circa Survive – particularly the massive, enveloping bass tone and vocals are reminiscent of those two bands.

That said, Immunizer still brings their own, original, sound to the table so while their influences seem clear, the band’s strength comes from their combination of sounds.

Take a listen to “Corpseflower” now and let us know what you think!

Will this band Breakthrough to the mainstream?

Typically when we hear of artists from Atlanta, we think of rap – after all, Atlanta is the unofficial rap capitol of the US.

But, that doesn’t mean rock and metal bands don’t exist in the Big A, and up and coming metal act Breakthrough Even proves it!

The band’s latest track, Phoenix Down, is out now and features carefully thought out riffs that creative a wall of sound that punches you right in the face.

One of the best parts of the song is that the guitars take a backseat when the vocals come in, giving the vocals their space to shine until it’s time to hand things back over to the guitars.

This juxtaposition creates an enveloping feel to the song, and is quite a highlight for me. I hope you enjoy it, too!

These Old Wounds won’t fade

Tulsa, OK, based hard rock band Fight The Fade have released the massive new track “Old Wounds” (not to be confused with the band of the same name).

The song takes the listener on a journey by beginning with an ominous, building intro. As the song progresses seamlessly to the first verse, things seem to reach a plateau until the chorus hits – and it hits hard.

The track continues on to provide great dynamic highs and lows between the verses and choruses, and later in the song an anvil replaces the snare drum to achieve a unique and powerful sound.

Considering the band has been around for over a decade, I’m surprised I haven’t heard of them before – but I’ll absolutely be keeping my eye out for their next release!
