Endless Sacrifice are a metalcore band from New Jersey that bring a larger than life feel to their music. They mix in a narrative and theatrics to liven the music up a bit. End Transmission is the second album in a narrative they've been telling through the music. Is this album worth the sacrifice or should it really just end?
So sad news today, the band ROMP have decided to bring things to an end. I fell in love with this band from the moment I heard their first EP. Their infectious brand of pop, punk, indie, and low fi was hard not to like. I mean how many other bands can release a song about burritos that catchy and yet punk all at the same time? Their album Departure From Venus is still one of my favorite albums this year. I wish all the members of this band the best in their future endeavors and will certainly be following them to see what they have in store next with other musical projects. Read their official release below.
What do you get when you throw mathcore, punk rock, indie rock, in a pot with just a dash of weird? You get The Surrealists Terrortoma EP. There's just so much going on, on this EP that it's hard to believe there's only a few songs. It feels so much larger than it is just because of how much they pack into every song.

I've always been a sucker for melodramatic post hardcore and metalcore that uses dark and macabre imagery. Sure there's genres like Deathcore that fit the same niche but despite being over the top as well they lack the bit of fun that the whole post hardcore genre seems to have. There's something about a catchy chorus about burying bodies that gets me. Which brings me to Misery Loves Company a band out of New Jersey that promises to deliver something dark and gruesome with their EP called I'm Still In Love...(With The Person Who Helped Me Write This). So do they hit the mark or is it just miserable?

The band Of Mice & Men are huge in the world of metalcore. Their last album Restoring Force was one of my favorite albums of 2014 and had some gnarly riffs and brutal breakdowns mixed with some catchy clean moments. The band has been through a lot since their last release, especially vocalist and frontman Austin Carlile. The result is a very different sound from the band. So is it worth checking out? Or should we just leave this one out in the cold?
Find out if the addition of the new electronics and the passing of time makes for a better sophomore album from Underoath.
