Our third new feature has landed – Metal Mondays!
To start things off, we have Tribute, a post-hardcore/metalcore band from Poughkeepsie, NY. The five piece got together in 2013 and has since released three singles and a self titled EP on their Bandcamp page. The production of "Lambs Become Lions" is perfect, not a single note is out of place, the drums are tight and punchy, and the vocals sit well in the mix. Tribute will definitely be a band to keep an eye on in the next year or two.
Up next we've got Blue Helix and their song "Runaways". Compared to Tribute, Blue Helix have a more classic sound in the direction of grunge and hard rock, but there are definite metal influences to be heard. Hailing from Washington State, the band won the 2015 Puget Sound Battle of the Bands. The band clearly follows in the steps of Seattle's music of the 90s, and will likely become one of the Pacific Northwest's hottest acts.
To round things out we have the Israeli metalcore band Canine and their cut "From Ashes". The song is the first single from their upcoming debut, The Uprising. The guitar solo at 3:05 alone makes this song worth checking out. I can't wait to hear more from this band!
That's it for Metal Mondays numero uno!
