Whatever Wholeheart has on the end of this “Spirit Leash,” is bound to be terrifying!

Metalcore band, Wholeheart, from Grand Rapids, MI, give us a straightforward hardcore style with depth-centric guitars for “Spirit Leash.”

This track starts it off with the infamous Pro Tools click track sound that any studio musician most likely despises at this point. It works great with building into the absolute slammer of a hardcore progression though. The guitars are beefy, the vocals are aggressive, and the bass has that low growling nature that pairs so well with the intensity of the track. The instrumentation following the spitting vocal lines brings a freight train of heaviness and unity. The lead guitar lines give the track a touch of melodic appeal that contrasts excellently with the aggression. If you like a to-the-point metalcore style, that simultaneously keeps you engaged and banging your head, this one is worth a listen!

4 Oceans enter the mosh pit “Unbidden,” and they bring Dominic Christoph of Cypecore!

German metalcore band, 4 Oceans, slam out a new heavy track, Unbidden, with Cypecore vocalist, Dominic Christoph.

4 Oceans really kicks into the track with strong synths fading into a depth charge of rhythm guitars. Where this song strikes the ear, is through its rising progression, setting itself apart from a standard grindy metal track. The synth action and intermittent clean vocals help lift the progression while the drums and guitars keep it gritty and metal in production. Growl vocals in this one are well controlled and combo excellently with the sustained cleans. If you want to get hit by a train of metal, but also like quick high-register progressions and melody, this one might be for you!

Give Unbidden, by 4 Oceans (Feat. Dominic Christoph) a listen, and be sure to follow them for future updates!
