“Bound to Thrill,” the exhilarating new Letters Sent track!

Germany metalcore band, “Letters Sent,” bring the fast-paced elements of hardcore and metal to their new release “Bound to thrill!”

This track will get your blood pumping with its driving drums, progressing rhythms, and aggressive hardcore vocals. The growl vocals have that nice medium between clarity and aggression, hinting at ties to melodic death metal, but with a higher level of decipherability. With well executed pacing, and an in-your-face vibe, the song maintains energy while transitioning to elevated clean vocals. All in all, this is a punchy song, that will keep you on the edge of your seat with its forward moving guitar lines. The warehouse thrashing in their music video is pretty killer too.

Hostage drop “Cancer,” in support of world cancer day 2022

Metalcore band Hostage, from Germany, drop “Cancer,” teaming up with Rotarian Metalhead Fellowship to raise funds for world cancer day on February 4th, 2022.

Hostage does a great job incorporating high-movement lines while maintaining a solid rhythm on this track. The guitar riffs are interesting, yet hold the concrete depth that is needed to bring a metal mix together. The amount of aggression in the growl vocals is on point, with lots of energy and a good blend with the clean vocals. On top of it all, the song has that bass and kick drum punch that works so well with grindy riffs in this genre. Stay until the end to hear the ramping tempo transition.

Give a listen to “Cancer,” and be sure to head over to the Rotarian Metalhead Fellowship’s fundraiser page to see what Hostage has been promoting!

Howl Like Wolves take the “Crown” with their new track!

The German Metalcore band, Howl Like Wolves, hit us with their title track and anticipated EP “Crown!”

This past September, we covered another track from the EP: “Into The Waves,” and this one delivers just as well! The song has the depth of a synth-heavy Bring Me The Horizon track and then adds bursts of aggression and hefty beatdown sections on top. The layering in this track is superb, going from a low intensity intro, to the pounding main riff, verse, and adding in bass as the progression continues. Leaving instruments out and bringing them in to create a fuller section is a strong suit for this track, always bringing the dynamics to the next level. The growl vocals are also tearing it up throughout! The “in your face” vibe of the growls, transferring to the background when the clean vocals pick up, makes for a perfect combo.

Take a listen to this title track off their new EP “Crown,” and be sure to scope out the other tracks from the EP as well!
