Metal band, Bridges Ablaze, from Austin Texas, hit us with a hefty riffing track, “Hellbent!”
I enjoyed this track particularly due to its use of heavy guitars, diverse vocals styles, and consistent pacing. While it is certainly a metal song, it doesn’t race to the finish line with overly sped up sections. The speed of the track allows enough room for the riffs and vocals to open up and breathe. The backup vocals and effects mix in for the perfect amount of space and power. The breakdown in the latter half of the song doesn’t disappoint either, complete with a solo and guttural growl. If you’re a fan of the riffing and long sustained vocal style in metalcore, this one may be for you!
Give “Hellbent,” by Bridges Ablaze a watch here, and be sure to follow them for more!
