Metalcore GENRE ARCHIVES

Welcome to AltCorners' Metalcore Archive!

Can’t Swim – Foreign Language

New Jerseys Can’t Swim are back with six-track EP, Foreign Language released via Pure Noise Records. Foreign Language is my first foray into the music of Can’t Swim, I hear previous records Fail You Again and This Too Won’t Pass exploded their fan base around the U.S.

Issues – ‘Beautiful Oblivion’

Issues haven't completely shed the skin that is metalcore on new record 'Beautiful Oblivion', but they've certainly moisturised it with some extra glossy melodies that make the record more accessible to people outside of the scene

Crown The Empire- Sudden Sky

Texan metalcore outfit Crown The Empire are back with their fourth album, Sudden Sky.

I Prevail w/Palisades @ Electric Ballroom London

Doors opening at 7pm to a Sold Out show, with all patiently waiting for an hour before Palisades are set to take the stage. Everyone seems to be keeping themselves fairly entertained though by singing such "hits" as Bob The Builder, Spongebob Squarepants and Bon Jovi's 'Living On A Prayer' to name a few, in such a football chanting way.

Wage War announce January 2020 tour

Wage War are kicking off June by looking to 2020 as they announce a run of UK dates for the beginning of next year.

Harbinger – Compelled To Suffer

With their debut album, Harbinger showcase bags of potential. With a sludgy aura and thrashy riffs, there’s tonnes of influences throughout this record. It swings from metalcore to death metal. It’s a record that will perk the ears of many metal fans. Perhaps the only downside of this record is that it drags a bit. At 49 minutes long, there isn’t enough to keep you interested for that length of time. There is a lot throughout that shows potential but at the length it is it certainly needs to be more consistent.

Siamese – Super Human

Danish RnB-Core band Siamese have just released their 5th studio album Super Human (3rd as Siamese, previously know as Siamese Fighting Fish) and is possibly the album of 2019. Admittedly, this may come across bias as I have been hooked on them since my first encounter as a support band for Dead By April a couple of years ago... But cast that aside, you need to check out this album!

NOT ENOUGH – TO L-VE

Polish quintet NOT ENOUGH's debut EP sees them attempt to copy the commercially successful template laid down by the likes of Bring Me The Horizon and PVRIS. The synth driven rock music has elements of modern metalcore but sticks to clean vocals for the majority. The EP lacks any real punch and even the heavier bits just pass you by. Ultimately the template used to create this EP is overdone and ultimately boring. Its hard to find anything that stands out of note good or bad.

Death Blooms – You Are Filth

According to other people, Death Blooms are a big thing for the UK hardcore scene, so the release of their new EP 'You Are Filth' is an important point for the band. Having only 4 songs, however, means they have to deliver the goods. And they do, but theres a few bads in there too.
