The Last King is an up and coming technical deathcore band coming from the depths of New England. The band released their first EP in 2018 titled “II”. The quintet marked the next chapter of their musical careers with the release of their pulverizing new song “Nescience”. The new song captivates The Last King’s drive to further push their sound forward in a creative, unique way. Nescience features Michael Alvarez of Alterbeast and Flub. The addition of Michael’s vocals has further complimented the overall track, which stands pretty tall already. The Last King overall sound is a blend of old and new technical deathcore, with even some death metal influence in the mix. “Nescience” is the first song off the band’s upcoming concept album, which will tackle topics like corruption within society on their next record.

Florida outfit least. have released their new single “Another Living Room” accompanied by a lyric video featuring vocalist Taylin Willis. This track is the band’s fifth released to streaming platforms, and shines in the vein of such acts like Basement, Superheaven, and others in the emo gamut. The somber tone is supplemented by well-layered guitars, making for a striking piece sure to resonate with yearning listeners. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Taylin cover other songs, such as Forest Green‘s “In Waves,” and it’s evident that she’s bursting with talent. Discover least. with the video for “Another Living Room” below!
After teasing it just last week, deathcore band Chelsea Grin have unveiled a new single, “Bleeding Sun”. It’s the first new music from the band since 2018’s Eternal Nightmare, and while it’s really not that different from a song you’d find off that record, the band have managed to step up their lyrical game on the new song. At the very least, it’s not a step down from that decent record. Give “Bleeding Sun” a spin below.
NOM∀DIC’s Euphoria is my current album of the year for 2020. A breath of fresh air for the genre of metal, it’s purposeful, perfectly-executed, and a thrill ride with a memorable climax. Originally slated to release in April, James Lewis decided to release a song from the album every two weeks leading up to July 10th, with brilliant art for each piece. Watching Euphoria unfold in this fashion gradually got me beyond excited for the final product, and it delivered. I had the chance to speak to James with some big questions about the release.
