Fit For A King and Phinehas are two bands that are unafraid to wave the flag of American Metalcore. I mean seriously, Fit For A King emblazon the genre on some of their merch! Both bands have put out forward-thinking and interesting releases, especially Dark Skies and thegodmachine.

Anyhow, FFAK vocalist Ryan Kirby and Phinehas guitarist Daniel Gailey now have a channel dedicated to their covers of their favorite rock and metal songs, and they’re getting community involvement, too.

Ryan and Daniel have a Patreon account, where you can also vote in their monthly cover poll, get an mp3 of said cover for yourself, and much more.
