Reminiscent of compatriots Northlane, Sempiternal-era Bring Me The Horizon, and Bad Omens, Swedish band Noija have released their debut album, Colorblind. The album, which can be streamed in full below, straddles the line between modern rock, post-hardcore, and lush, atmospheric metalcore. And while Noija aren’t necessarily breaking new ground that previous bands haven’t stepped on before, they do have a bright future. Vocalist Nick Serlsted seems almost effortless behind the microphone, and given some time, he could be a major force in the music scene.

Our photojournalist Savannah Rowley recently attended the Orlando date of the No Sun, No Moon Tour featuring The Devil Wears Prada, Veil of Maya, Silent Planet, and Thousand Below. The tour is about halfway through, you can get tickets for upcoming dates here.
Thousand Below opened up the show. Originating from San Diego, CA this is only the band’s second tour. Playing songs such as “Never Here” and “Tradition” off of their recently released album The Love You Let Too Close. The band warmed up the crowd for the acts to follow.
Just when you think progressive metal has run out of new and interesting ideas, along comes Australia’s The Omnific. The band, whose new EP Kismet drops November 24th, consists of two bass players and a drummer. Talented though they are, one might not think this combination translates to music that would engage more than a fan of progressive music, but you would also be wrong.
The band has released a new song, “Objets De Vertu”, off the upcoming EP today, and you can check that out below. If you like what you hear, preorder the record October 16th.
