Bring Me The Horizon is one of the prime examples of how musical evolution can benefit a band. The band recently released their long-awaited heavy new single “Parasite Eve,” following the direction of their 2019 song “Ludens”. During quarantine the band have released several Youtube videos showing behind-the-scenes footage of the creative process leading up to the the release of “Parasite Eve,” with more music to be released under the project name ‘Post Human’ as told in an interview with NME. BMTH also worked with producer Mick Gordon (DOOM, Wolfenstein) on the new single.
Remo Drive, 2020
Remo Drive have been making a name for themselves for the better part of the 2010s, getting their start in 2013 and dropping quite the quantity of releases ever since. The band signed to Epitaph in 2018 and keep gaining steam, leading to their upcoming album, A Portrait of an Ugly Man. This third full-length comes into the world on June 26th, but here’s a preview of what’s to come:
“A Guide to Live By” opens up A Portrait of an Ugly Man, with a driving verse riff, teeming with plenty of drum fills and guitar runs. It’s easily accessible and could sit comfortably in a rock radio queue. Leading single “Star Worship” is characterized by its snare hits every measure and mystifying vocals. The low-register guitar solo in the outro transitions into the album’s next song adequately.
