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!
