Personally one of my most anticipated releases of the year would have to be the debut LP from longtime friends and followers Apart. Compiling 8 amazing tracks is hard to do, but I feel the band has done it with ease. Expect huge things from this band in the coming years.Mayfly Records were awesome enough to sign the band and release the LP. Preorders should be launching VERY soon, so keep an eye on their website and buy a copy or two when available.STREAM THE FULL LP HERE!

A much anticipated split on my end, two of the best new bands in Florida lock up for a split 7”. Axis is a heavily 90’s influenced hardcore band in vein of Turmoil, Harvest, and early Snapcase. Weight of the World is an early 2000’s influenced hardcore band in the vein of Battery, What Feeds the Fire, and Faded Grey. The Split will be out via On Point Recordsin May/June.

Review: Rise And Fall- FaithRise And Fall are a band that don’t need much of an introduction in 2012. In 2005 the band dropped Into Oblivion, a near perfect collection of crushing hardcore heavily influenced by Cleveland legends Integrity and Ringworm. Four years and several overseas tours later the band dropped Our Circle Is Vicious, a record that saw them expand out into more experimental post metal territory. Faith is again an evolution for the band, a refined combination of sounds from the previous records that still manages to stand out as it’s own beast entirely. Every song has it’s own unique dynamic;While the more straightforward hardcore ragers that open the album are brief and contain some of the heaviest and most focused material from the band to date, midway through the band truely hit their stride as they branch out into unfamilar territory, from the hypnotic post rock section in “Things Are Different Now” to the opening riff of the song”Breathe” that could have been pulled straight from the Jesus Lizard. These are welcome surprises, as the band handles them with the utmost quality and they always fit perfectly within the context of the songs, never feeling cheap or unecessary. As a whole, this album manages to please longtime fans whole growing exponentially as a band and artists in general. With Faith, Rise And Fall have crafted a modern hardcore masterpiece that even this early in the year will be hard to top.Preorder “Faith” from the Deathwish Estore (instant digital download included)Watch The Video For “Hidden Hands”

Review: Black Breath- Sentenced to LifeNo surprise, Southern Lord has released another gem to add to their massive list of amazing albums. Black Breath’s new LP “Sentenced to Life” is the perfect blend between aggressive vocals and riff driven metal that shows the listener that this band is not to be taken lightly. 

If you have listened to older releases by Black Breath, especially “Heavy Breathing”, this album will not disappoint. “Sentenced to Life” is a progression from their old albums while still maintaining the raw and punishing sound they have become associated with. “Heavy Breathing” is not an easy album to follow up but “Sentenced to Life” has managed to surpass my high expectations for Black Breath releases.The guitar tone on this album is reminiscent many of the death metal greats with a Sunlight Studios kind of sound. The buzz saw effect on the guitars allows for the complex melodic and rhythmic patterns to come through clear while still allowing the listened to enjoy the metallic and harsh sounds they produce. The song “Obey” stands out the most, which ends with a doubled guitar solo followed by driving drums and second guitar while the first guitar continues to float above the band in a realm of metal greatness. I have seen Black Breath a few times live and they are never one to disappoint. I cannot wait to see the new songs live and join in the furious head banging that will ensue. Until then I will be listened to this album on repeat. Buying this album might just be the best purchase you make all year.Buy “Sentenced to Life” here
