Mokrap of Croton
Always down to see more hardcore/hardcore adjacent stuff in here! A lot of the stuff I really like lately blurs the lines between metal and hardcore, not so much in the "deathcore" or "metalcore" styles as calcified by bands in the early 2000s but in the was Xibalba, Fuming Mouth, Terminal Nation, Hanging Fortress, et al are doing basically crossover but with death instead of thrash.Not sure if you would consider Portrayal of Guilt metal or hardcore, but their new album shreds.
To that effect, have just gotten onto Bad Ideals. They mix up thrash, hardcore, maybe some death metal, just lots of things into a slurry that sounds like it's brawling its way down a staircase in the best way possible. The moments when they barrel into a stomping break riff are absolutely killer! Have yet to put them to the true test for any hardcore/metal band (does this, in fact, increase my squat/deadlift?) but we'll find out soon!
BRR-008: Bad Ideals - You Can't Have It All At Once EP, by Bad Ideals
7 track album
And in the opposite direction I've found a new psych/doom band I really dig! Blackwater Holylight merge big fatass riffs with ethereal singing and will occasionally let some grunge show through. Excellent stuff.
