This post-hardcore band from Olympia, WA just released their debut album. For a band that just started it’s great to see them at a well-known label like Facedown. Bands like For Today and Gideon where part of this label and have a big name in the Christian metal scene. The album was recorded by Matt Bayles who worked with bands like Norma Jean and Mastodon.
The first song on the album In Error starts off with a sound that reminds me of For Today and Miss May I. The rest of the song is a total different sound, but the begin of this song really has a metalcore feeling. I would describe it as post-hardcore with metalcore influences. This makes it very interesting. I’m a big fan of metalcore and not that big of a fan of post-hardcore. This band makes post-hardcore different but in a good way if you ask me. It is close to metalcore at this point and that makes it easier to listen to. But Earthbound makes it sound totally post-hardcore. It sound to me like Norma Jean and The Chariot. I like those bands but this bands still makes it their own. It is melodic and rough at the same time and I miss that sometimes with The Chariot. Father is a instrumental song and sounds totally different than the rest of the album.
