From: Perth, Australia
Sounds like: Pop/Punk



Australia is a place lately that has been a hotbed for metal and hardcore bands. Ready To Fire are changing the AU invasion to more pop punk influenced music due to their tremendous debut "Ready To Fire" EP. "Cityside" opens the EP with a very pop punk heavy intro. The upbeat melody of the guitars mixed with the female vocals is something remarkable. The track brings to mind early Paramore and the track is a fun track to start things off. "Do You Remember When?" has chuggy guitar riffs and it's a fantastic radio friendly track. This song should immediately be on everyones' daily playlist. "Hold On" has a fantastic guitar work throughout the track and really captures the essence of the overall tone of the track. It's an overall pretty good track to just jam out to. "Love Me Or Hate Me" is a slower track and then transitions to an early Fall Out Boy type sound that is refreshing and soothing on the ears. "Punchline" closes out the EP with a pure summertime vibe track. The track oozes sun, fun and New Found Glory influences. It's a perfect track to complete this incredible debut EP. Tune in pop punk lovers, Ready To Fire is here to capture your hearts and ears for a long time to come.

Verdict:
Ready To Fire is coming out with new material soon so don't be surprised if they fine tuned their sound even further. Ready To Fire is bringing the catchy pop punk from Australia to invade everyones' eardrums to solidify that pop punk is here to stay.

From: Lincolnshire, UK
Sounds like: Melodic Hardcore




Melodic hardcore has been taken less and less seriously lately with bands incorporating different elements which make it stray a bit from the roots. Savour The Silence brings back the true sound of melodic hardcore and makes it their own into a very exciting EP for old school melodic hardcore fans. "An Army Of Me, A Kingdom Of You" crashes in with an almost Letlive/Everytime I Die ferocity. The track pulls you in and gets straight in your face right away. The melodic hardcore sound and breakdowns of the track keeps it moving at a frantic pace. "Letters From The Zodiac" keeps up the fast clip of sound as it treads into Hundredth territory with just a swift spinkick to the face. The track isn't messing around that's for sure. "Cowards Kill More Than Heroes" has a lot of buildups and energy to be an outstanding live track. "Cycles" finishes out the EP. The track has a Bring Me The Horizon type break and then unleashes passionate fury. It's a great way to end the short but very good debut EP.

Verdict:
Savour The Silence is bringing back the true style of melodic hardcore and blending it with their style. UK hardcore is well represented in this young group. With explosive live shows and energetic sound, these guys are looking at a bright future in the hardcore scene.

From: Chicago, IL
Sounds like: Pop/Rock




Rome The Ruins brings their style of female fronted pop/rock to the forefront as their debut EP "X Seconds Left" kicks things off with the track "This Is It" which is a rockin' good time. The punk influence on the track mixed with pop/rock brand of the band is truly outstanding as a starter to the EP. The vocal range of Taylor is incredible and it's only the beginning. "Back And Forth" is an upbeat radio friendly rock song that brings to mind Halestorm. The guitar solo is a nice touch and really a solid rock track. "Wasteland" opens a tad slower than the previous tracks but really shows their diversity as they delve into a more glam pop sound mixed with Joan Jett type rock. The song simply works and hearing this track of track on a debut EP is something really special. Don't be surprised if you're rocking out to the chorus and get it stuck in your head. "Idea Of Should" is a slower paced track that is really a nice slowdown track. "With Time" closes out the EP with a bang. The bass line and drums early on bring way to a sure fire tremendous upbeat rock track that would get a live crowd in a frenzy. The breakdown in the track only amplifies its power. The track and EP are stellar and it's phenomenal that this is a debut EP.

Verdict:
Rome The Ruins may be young but holy moly can they make some awesome pop/rock music that can stand side by side with the heavyweights of the rock scene. As Rome The Ruins say in the track "Back And Forth", they're "just getting started". Keep your eyes peeled for more music from this band.

Port Crane, NY rock band Mobday get their "Vertigo" album reviewed. Check out our take below.

From: Port Crane, NY
Sounds like: Rock




New York's Mobday has been around for ten years and has shared the stage with bands such as Smile Empty Soul, Saliva, Tantric and Days Of The New. Their newest album "Vertigo" showcases their extreme talent to make great rock tracks that will keep elevating them further and further. The full length album kicks off with the driving track "Breathe". The track encompasses the rock flair of early 200's as its just a kick ass track. It simple has it all. It's a great track to kick off the album. "Blackbird" brings in the crunchy guitars and alternative rock sound. The sound on the track just screams crowd favorite as its very easily accessible. "Battleships" continues the rock onslaught. The track is extremely radio friendly single that brings to mind early Stone Temple Pilots mixed with perhaps Buckcherry. "Jester" comes in with a bang and brings to mind Trustcompany mixed with Korn as it explodes with excitement and catchiness. It's a track with a good mix of rock that is sure to capture any rock fans ear. "8412" is another radio friendly track that is in the vein of Breaking Benjamin. Don't be surprised if the track gets stuck in your ear as its extremely catchy and should be on every ones playlist. "Burn" is the longest track on the album and is very reminiscent of the Deftones. It's spacey, heavy and oozes emotion. It's a must hear for any Deftones fan. "Air Mask" is the next track and keeps the upbeat rock going. The guitar solo on the track is amazing as its a perfect track to follow "Burn". "Serious" is a track that is seen as a crowd favorite. The chorus and guitar riffs and drums work so perfectly on the track its a shame that it has to end. The live aspect of this track is off the charts as heard in the incredible breakdown near the end. "Queen" is probably the fastest track and shortest on the album as its a tad different but will only get your head bopping faster. It's surprising and it works quite well. "Glass" ends the album on a high note as it's simply crushing. The track brings to mind early Linkin Park (without the rapping) as its heavy, catchy and radio friendly sound will captivate every rock fan.

Verdict:
Mobday is a band that has been around for awhile now and is still tightening and evolving. Their brand of rock is second to none as this album is a rockin' good time from start to finish.

From: Washington, DC
Sounds like: Rock




Low Battery is a band from Washington, DC that has their own brand of rock that is a nice mixture of punk, rock and pop. This six song EP is a perfect example of their diversity. "Get Away" is a straight up rock song. The track incorporates rocking guitar riffs and some good ol' rocking vocals that will sure get some heads bobbin. "Round The Block" is the definition of catchy from straight to finish. It's extremely radio friendly. The track oozes the sound of summer. "Where You Been" opens with a bass line then guitars and drums that take you on a musical journey that really slows things down to a more personal approach. It's a nice way to break up the EP with its overall tone and sound. "Wavey" is another slower song but really elevates the EP to a new height. The dual vocals on the track really work well with each other. "The Neibs Song" is back to the crunchy guitars and upbeat sound. The track has a throwback 90's rock radio sound to it but modernized. It's a really really good track. "Butterfly" closes out the EP. The track is full of surprises which have to be heard to be believed. It's definitely a stunner. Shades of Gym Class Heroes on the track really raise some eyebrows. This EP will light a fire under the listener and make them believe that rock is alive and well. It's so easy to like this EP, so give a listen and see for yourself.

Verdict:
Low Battery has it all on the rock scale. The tracks on the EP all seem effortless and truly natural which really shows the true talent that the band encompasses. Any fan of rock music should give them a look and listen.

Mulhouse, France deathcore band Diana Rising get their "Eon Through The Mist" EP reviewed. Check out our take below.
www.facebook.com/dianarisingmusic
www.facebook.com/dianarisingmusic
From: Mulhouse, France
Sounds like: Deathcore




The hard hitting EP starts off with the track "Look Down On Me". The track is full of metalcore with a dash of death metal. It's loaded with breakdowns that are sure to cause whiplash at some point. It's a starting track that will get your adrenaline flowing. The second track "Think Once More" brings to mind early I Killed The Prom Queen with it's slow churning breakdowns combined with driving guitars and a sprinkle of melody within its five minute length. The last track on the EP is "Way Too Weak" and it comes in like a sledgehammer to the temple. The track would sit well with fans of August Burns Red. The song finishes out the EP with a flurry of chaos. This is an EP that should be in every deathcore/metalcore fans lineup. The only drawback is that its three songs are nowhere near enough.

Verdict:
The three tracks on the EP are full of rage and Diana Rising aren't messing around. Diana Rising pushes the genre even further with their seamless sound and brand of metalcore. Don't make the mistake of not checking out this awesome metalcore/deathcore band from France.

Hamilton, New Zealand post hardcore band Barracks get their "Ghosts" album reviewed. Check out our take below.
www.facebook.com/barracksmusic
www.facebook.com/barracksmusic
From: Hamilton, New Zealand
Sounds like: Post Hardcore




Barracks starts things off with the upbeat, melodic track "Asleep". The track is adrenaline filled post hardcore to its fullest. Traces of Glassjaw and early Funeral For A Friend are present throughout. "What You Said" has a more Stick To Your Guns/Your Demise feel to it as it brings the punk/hardcore vibe to the track. It's a track that is sure to get the crowd moving. The ending of the track sound a lot like Poison The Well and that's always a good thing. "Pavement" brings melody to the forefront but still has the breakdowns and aggression that Barracks is known for. "We Are Ghosts" is a very solid track with bits of Letlive. to it as its high energy mixed with melody is right up their alley. "Strangers" is fast, in your face and takes no prisoners with its ferocity. The chorus and two step breakdown are a perfect match and work brilliantly. The guitar riff towards the end has to be heard as it's fantastic. "Tide" would be a track that Thursday fans would quite enjoy. It's a haunting melodic track for sure. "Scatter" picks things back up with its high octane melodic hardcore feel. The track is incredible and is a good wake up track. The ending of the track is just pure chaos. "Held Down" could be seen as a crowd favorite with its gang chant style chorus, melody and breakdowns. "Paper Eyes" could easily fit in Poison The Well's "You Come Before You" album. It's a great track through and through. "Walls" is filled with passion and must be heard. "Closer" picks up the pace even faster to almost a punk pace. It's short and sweet. "Wake Up" is a track that brings to mind early Emery as its melodic post hardecore sound is just simply a pleasure on the ears. "Fight Back" closes out the track. It's a somber acoustic track that winds things down perfectly after such an eventful album.

Verdict:
It's no wonder why this album was on BitTorrent.com's best of 2014 list. The album has a little something for everyone looking for melody, heaviness and aggression in their music. It's crazy how this is a full length and they keep up the quality throughout all thirteen tracks. No filler, all awesome songs. This is the album that post hardcore/melodic hardcore fans have been itching for in a long time.

www.facebook.com/amongtitans
www.facebook.com/amongtitans
From: Windsor, Ontario, Canada
Sounds like: Metalcore




The EP kicks off with the track "Enter Titans". The slow build up for the track is a bit sludgy and then goes into a devastating hardcore breakdown. This track could be an incredible set opener for a live show. The next track "Redemption" keeps the floor moving with its metalcore ferocity. Two steppers and circle pit fans will enjoy this track as its high tempo will keep them moving throughout. "The March" is a 57 second interlude that has a marching drum beat throughout the track. "Rise Now Champion" has a bit of early War Of Ages influence to it. The track is filled with emotion, passion and energy. The title track "Alone With Voices" closes out the EP. The track closes things out perfectly as it summarizes nicely everything contained before it. The EP is short and to the point. Among Titans are looking at a bright future within the scene with this release. Metal, hardcore and faith are what Among Titans bring to the table that should be heard by everyone with a appetite for it.

Verdict:
Among Titans and fellow Canadian band From The Wolves are both bringing some heavy notice to the Canadian metalcore scene. This "Alone With Voices" EP is a crushing debut effort from these guys. There's no clean singing on the EP, just annihilation of the listeners eardrums with their brand of metalcore.
