Sometimes you can judge what a show is going to be like by the crowd. Dream State at the Key Club in Leeds was one of those shows.
2000trees Festival is all about the music, with more than 120 of the absolute best new and underground acts from the worlds of rock and indie, plus some more established acts to close out the night. The festival also prides itself on giving new bands a platform to play to a huge audience, helping build bands up and supporting the UK music scene. It is a staple amongst the UK Festival scene and a festival that is held extremely close to the hearts of us at AltCorner. So what better way to get excited about the festival than to compile a list of artists we cannot wait to see tear it up!
Modern Error's debut album Lost In The Noise is a solid start to the band's catalogue, however the odd pacing of the album prevents it gaining any real momentum. With a sound that draws from the common synth driven style of modern metalcore, there is a draw to ballads and melody. Taking a strong influence from the recent Architects releases, and a hint of post Sempiternal metalcore. All the while the is no distinct reliance on another bands style. Within this record there are signs of potential and while it doesn’t stand out as an individual record it does suggest Modern Error to be a band to keep an eye on in coming years.
