A three-minute video clip of vocalist Frankie Palmeri of metalcore band Emmure talking about the band’s new album, “Look At Yourself”, can be seen below. The album will be released on March 3. The follow-up to the 2014’s “Eternal Enemies” marks Emmure‘s first release with SharpTone Records.

“Look At Yourself” represents a coming of age for Emmure, a new chapter in an aggressive autobiography that stretches back to the band’s very first album, released when vocalist Frankie Palmeri was barely out of his teens.

It’s expressed in a crushing cacophony of riffs that never fail to super-serve the forward-motion groove of Emmure. Continue reading »
