This week, melodic metalcore mob High Rise release their new EP – ‘Left It For Everything (LIFE)’. Channeling the anthemic metalcore of the likes of Bury Tomorrow and Beartooth with a bit of melodic hardcore thrown in for good measure, the EP shows the London group has plenty of purpose. ‘Left It For Everything (LIFE)’ rolls through with a groove-ridden crunch with plenty of big choruses and heavy breakdowns.
Ahead of its release, we asked High Rise to tip us off on 5 London-based hardcore bands to keep eye on in the coming months. Here are there choices…
Far From History
Every time we see them live it’s always a great show, they work extremely hard and have a great sound. They play fast, heavy and in your face metalcore that also has very catchy choruses which will stick in your head for days.
Vanity Draws Blood
These guys are the kings of haunting metalcore. Their spooky interludes and bone crunching breakdowns come together to create tracks that really paint a scene of anguish and despair.
When we played with these guys, their energy was incredible. Definitely one of the most intense bands when they get on stage.
Cute Cute Death
These guys are a twist of post-hardcore and progressive rock. Interesting melodies and big drum fills, these guys are not one to miss.
Confessions Of A Traitor
This band are great live. Hard-hitting riffs! They just give so much to their music and their live performance. A must watch band if you get the chance.
‘Left It For Everything (L.I.F.E)’ by High Rise is released on September 16th.
