A shining light in the dim world of post-hardcore, Hail the Sun makes us remember why we got into the genre in the first place. Like a cross between Circa Survive and The Fall of Troy, Hail the Sun make the kind of heavy, yet catchy tunes that Pitchfork wouldn’t dare even cover. Delicate guitar lines are pounded by the quick, pulsating rhythms until they shatter into a mess of off-kilter pop-punk-esque romps. Let’s just hope Hail the Sun marks the comeback of a once-great genre turned ridiculous. Check out the track “Testostyrannosaurus” off their 2012 EP Elephantitis below. Read More…
Here is the latest update from the guitarist of Wayne Szalinksi, Andrew Adams! Check out the artists that have inspired his music.
A band that could only come out of California, Tera Melos seems to enjoy confusing the crap out of their listeners. Jazz-based math rock with elements of electronic and house music thrown in, they’re actually considered to be innovators of the math rock scene. The rhythmic structure of each song can only be characterized as “chaotic.” Guitar-tapping, start-and-stop dynamics, and the extreme use of guitar pedals and effects make Tera Melos one of the most interesting bands to watch live. You can actually catch them this weekend when they open for TTNG at The Magic Stick. Check out the track “New Chlorine” off their tamest album to date: 2013′s X’ed Out below. Read More…

Providence, Rhode Island’s The Dear Hunter have been making a theatrical version of ambient hard rock since 2005. Musical mastermind Casey Crescenzo, along with his brother Nick, create a full, powerful sound spanning the spectrum of emotion. With a versatile arsenal of -driven storylines, each album has been a heroic tale of love and loss. The new album Migrant is their first concept-free album. Claiming to be the most honest album yet, it’s clearly pure experimentation at its best. Check out the music video for the new track “Whisper” off their 2013 album Migrant below. Read More…
