Thirty Nights of Violence, 2020 taken by Joey Wasileski
For a new band to make themselves known, it takes them making a statement. Thirty Nights of Violence are a newer hardcore band that have a miniscule following, but they’re looking to change that with their new EP You’ll See Me Up There. In the vast sea of the genre, it takes a lot to not come off as stale, so let’s see if these newcomers are able to stand out:
Coming out the gates swinging, “Lost in your Light” brings me back to the days of The Chariot, not resting for a second in a track’s runtime. This piece has it all: blast beats, triplet breakdowns, panic riffs, two different layers of unclean vocals, the list goes on and shows Thirty Nights of Violence aren’t a one-trick pony.
While there’s sadly a plethora of formerly interesting bands now attempting to appeal to the lowest common denominator via lazy songwriting and lack of inspiration, there’s plenty of exciting acts that are rising from their local scenes to tour with known quantities. Some, like Knocked Loose, seemingly did so overnight – while others, like Code Orange, took more of a slow burning route to get nominated for Grammy awards.
No matter which way you slice it, if you’re a fan of hardcore, metalcore, grindcore, or really any heavy music subgenre, there’s plenty of exciting acts coming around. On this first edition of Notes From Underground, we’re bringing you the best the underground has to offer. Strap yourselves in and discover something new today.
The future of metal and hardcore, despite what some popular musicians think, is more alive than ever before. The underground is teeming with bands that are blazing new trails, and one young band to watch is Tennessee metallic hardcore band Thirty Nights Of Violence. Carrying on the proud tradition of genre forebearers like Eighteen Visions, Poison The Well, Taken, and plenty of others, this band might be new on the scene – but their new EP To Die In Your Portrait proves this certainly won’t be the first time you hear about them.
