Set Before Us are a melodic Metalcore band from Sweden, founded in January 2013. According to their own statement; ‘ their lyrics aim to inspire and motivate each individual to take control of their fate, destiny and life. The lyrics will tackle various dilemmas and give the audience a spark of deep thought.’ They recorded their first official single ”Wildfire” during the winter of 2013. The single was released in the spring of 2014. A few months later Set Before Us began recording their debut EP ”Voyagers”, which was released in November 2014. Now they are back with their sophomore EP “Enigmas” which was released on November 22, 2016.
The first track of the album, ‘Clay Heart’, begins with an intro that get’s you excited to hear more and makes you curious for all that is about to come. And when the first riff begins you know that it was worth the wait. Boy, do they deliver…. Yes it is metalcore as we all have heard before but with an intensity that is fresh to say the least. High level breakdowns but not overdone. And a screamer that has a heavy scream but also with a dash of sensitivity in it.
