UNSIGNED AND UNHOLY: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN METAL?
Don’t believe there are good unsigned bands out there? Think everyone’s got a chance in this day and age of easy ProTools edits? I beg to differ. Let’s looks at Ever Forthright, Ironhide and So Hideous My Love, three new unsigned bands, after the jump.
- Ex-Periphery vocalist Chris Barretto and the lads in jazzy, experimental post-djent outfit Ever Forthright have a brand new track called “Screen Scenarios.” Stream it below:
- From what I can tell by listening to “Create/Collapse/Repeat,” the one track of Ironhide’s debut album posted on their Bandcamp page, these guys mix chaotic brutality ala The Red Chord with something a tad more experimental and techy. I dig.
- Add another band to the list of amazing new metal acts to come from NYC: So Hideous My Love, despite their awkwardly cringe-worthy, side-swooped haircut-invoking band name, do a fine job combining black metal musical aesthetics with tight, atmospheric soundscapes ala Junius, Constants, Moving Mountains etc. So Hideous My Love technically aren’t unsigned — they’re on small indie label Play the Assassin Records — but let’s give them a mulligan on this one.
