A Common Existence…

The crossover of Metal, Rock and Punk sub-genres is no fresh news but although it's been a particularly distinctive past decade of bands branching their roots out to even further experimental and progressive pastures – the latest direction for genre-bending bands like Bring Me The Horizon [with their aggressive hardcore infused with bursts of samples and moments of calm] and Protest The Hero [taking heavy, technical metal to an admirably catchy level] is producing some innovative sounds - if not always original then certainly thought provoking and definitely impressive…

We felt it only right to highlight our diverse offering of these ambassadors of fresher musical blood with the likes of Gallows [taking punk back to wider audiences], bands like Thursday [re-inventing (at least some spokes) of the indie-punk wheel sharing split releases with post-rock bands], Metal-core flagship Killswitch Engage [bringing high energy, speed and melody to classic Heavy Metal] and Australian prog-rockers Karnivool [turning heads on their past two European tours and helping to make prog a 'clean' word again!].
 
If there's a common thread to be found here it's in the writing and attitude of being forward thinking and open minded with nods to the past but used as a catalyst to create more exciting sounds rather than musical verbatim – onwards!
