2019 is coming in with a bang, as new records from Shrezzers and Rosetta are coming fast and furious. You can add a few new albums to this list today, as new records from Born Of Osiris and The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, debuts from The Jon Hill Project and Afterlife, and a very good new record from melodic metal legends Soilwork are all on the list.
Coming off a successful album release (Hikari, which just dropped a few weeks ago), Fearless Records proggy metalcore band Oceans Ate Alaska have proved themselves as one of the fastest rising bands in the music scene. Landing multiple Billboard chart placements in the US is no small thing for a band from England. And it appears the band may be coming back stateside very soon, if recent teasing is any indication.
5 songs in 15 minutes. That’s all that Florida-based alt-metal band Afterlife (Stay Sick Recordings) needs to make a quick first impression on any listener, and given that the band plays a flashy yet familiar form of modern alternative metal, they’re a band that needs to be on your radar right now if you’re a fan of Dangerkids, Sylar, and/or Bad Omens – or even if you’re just a fan of modern rock music in general. Stream the whole EP below and be sure to leave your thoughts on the album. This is Vicious Cycle.
