    Anyone into Crystal Lake?
    It's a band from Japan that jumps between nu-metal, djent, progressive and the heaviest -core imaginable.
    Loved those guys since their 2016 album "True North" but the new stuff is even better :D

    One of the small number of the "modern" metalcore bands I actually like. Helix came out last Friday, but Japan only for some reason. Seems weird to not do worldwide release on the same day, especially when most people are only buying/streaming digital anyway. :shrug:

    Interesting. I remember hearing this band many years ago and they were just a plain ol' hardcore band. I can't hear the new material right now (no speakers on my work monitor) but it's interesting to think that they've become modern metal.

    Killer music. Really love Apollo, it's so heavy and melodic.

    Shhh, don't speak of this. We're trying to get people to actually like this band. :lol:

    I've been a fan since about a year ago when a friend of mine played their album True North for me in his car. Glad to see them getting more and more recognition!

    Rollin' cover aside, I really dig this. Remind me of The Devil Wears Prada's Zombies EP in that it's pretty fresh and interesting for metalcore, really like the melodic/clean stuff on Omega.

    Well, they're not exactly new (founded in 2002 I think) but doing a cover of a well-known band is always a good idea to get publicity.
    That aside they seem to get better and better with every release and I love that they just start to get the recognition they deserve imho :)
    Also Ryo is probably my favourite screamer right now. He can do pretty much everything between Phil Bozeman and Dani Filth :D
