Rabid hardcore entwined with melodious metalcore. That’s what Stick To Your Guns has been serving us up for years, hard as nails and raw. And the band from Orange County, California, never avoids the socially critical themes. On their most recent issue ‘Better Ash Than Dust’, an EP that precedes their upcoming longplayer on brand new label Pure Noise Records, they denounce things like the ‘police brutality’ that the US has been dealing with for years. And, as ever, they do that deafeningly and & very much in your face!
Just like Stick to Your Guns, Being As An Ocean continues to build on the foundations of metalcore & (post)hardcore, but they also throw in a serious serve of post-rock, spoken word and – as on new single ‘Black & Blue’ – ambient. They will soon throwing ‘Waiting For Morning To Come’, their fourth issue, in our direction and this time via Equal Vision Records. Incomiiiiiiing!
