I have been reading quite a few “lists” lately and it has inspired me to create my own for fun. I get tired of reading the same lame ones by some “bigger” websites and this is my chance to expand upon the topic. Enjoy the list below. Also, take that Relevant Magazine 😉 [Update: March 29th – Now featuring music/videos of each artist embedded in post below]
A new recommendation for today, October 30th is the Southern California melodic hardcore punk band, Fire The Sun. The Ventura, CA. band just released their debut independent full length “An Evolution in the Creation of a New Self Being” via NoiseTrade that you can check out and download for FREE below. The album has that perfect combination of harsh, aggressive, hardcore tone mixed with melodic, fast and furious punk beats. It’s rough and raw yet great production for an independent band via Paul Miner (Thrice, Atreyu, New Found Glory, Throwdown, Death By Stereo, etc). Their sound takes on variance all it’s own and straddles the line between both punk and hardcore much the way bands like Death By Stereo, Thrice, Rise Against, Strongarm, Stretch Arm Strong, were doing more than a decade ago. It’s that old school inspired sound that keeps it interesting and yet current enough to keep it from being boring. These guys are spirit filled and certainly aren’t ashamed to say so. So check out this new album and also make sure you download the Strongarm “cover” of “Stand Together” right here.
