"This North Vancouver 6-piece has managed to create one of the heavier and most fearsome Deathcore records we've heard in some time. In some ways, it breathes new life into the genre with some truly excellent moments and genre bending.
It's easy to recommend this album to all fans of the Deathcore genre and even just extreme music in general."
- The Circle Pit
AngelMaker is a 6 piece (Melodic/Deathcore) band based out of North Vancouver, BC, Canada.
All being friends from high school with the common goal of playing heavy music, we formed in 2011 released an early single and shortly after released our Debut EP 'Decay' in September of 2012.
After the largely positive response from 'Decay' we teamed up with Total Deathcore and released a split EP with Isolations and Lament in May 2013.
We released our first ever music video in October of 2014 with True Grit Promotions.
We then took some time to take everything we had learned from our previous releases and put forth our best product to date with our brand new full length album entitled "DISSENTIENT" which was released February 2015.
It is a bitter, bleak darkness, slithering its way into your ears, winding its way into your head and infecting your mind—spreading disease, distrust and destruction with every syllable spoken. Described as dissonant, dismal and dome-splittingly heavy, it is the music of Falsifier—lords of lurid aggression hailing from London, Ontario. Far from a lie, Falsifier are the whirlwind of misanthropic, mutilating honest anger that down-tempo deathcore has been lacking, blending low, slow instrumental elements with catchy riffs and throat-shredding vocals, these Canadian crushers bring honest energy to a dull, stagnant and repetitive scene in dire need of a renovation.
Beginning in 2013 and taking 2014 by storm with their debut self-titled EP, Falsifier hit the ground running, sticking to a rigorous schedule of live shows and relentless practice, refining their DIY take on deathcore into something prominent and potent. By the time 2014's otherwise lack-luster summer would draw to a close, Falsifier would be ready to drench fans of heavy music in darkness once more, with a re-release of their debut EP under the honest and accurate title, Reissue. Reissue takes the promise of their initial material and transforms it into pure punishment, providing the listener with all the ruthless aggression of their debut release in a crisp and crushing format the glides into the listener's ear as smoothly as silk, but shreds their eardrums as savagely as a swarm of locusts. Reissue isn't the end of Falsifier's attack on 2014, however: the band is already back at it, grinding away on a brand new single, "86" as well as more live shows, even more writing and touring—never failing in pushing the envelope for heavy music, pumping fresh, flaming-hot blood into fans of heavy and hate-filled music across the globe.
Deathcore / Beatdown
Coeur d'Alene, ID
It isn't very often in today's heavy music scene that the listener can dive right into a band knowing exactly what they're in for. With names that are designed to grab the listener's interest--but often music that fails to do the same--checking out new bands is a gamble, or, was a gamble. With North Carolina's latest addition to the downtempo deathcore scene, Filth give the listener a picture-perfect premonition of their sound before they can even press play. Murkier than a tar pit and harsher than a jackhammer burying into the listener's ears, this sinister Shelby quartet are here for one thing, and one thing only: to inflict the most damage to the listener in the shortest amount of time possible, and they do it with unbelievable efficacy.
Born in 2015 as a side project for guitarist David Gantt, bassist Nathan Pittman and vocalist Dustin Mitchell's main band, InVoker, Filth quickly took on a life of its own, with the purpose of spreading soul-smothering heaviness to the heads of heavy music enthusiast around the country. Erupting out of sheer nothingness with the release of their debut EP, Tales from the Gutter, Filth began like a ball of mud rolling down a steep hill of trash and grime--picking up mass and speed with each passing second. The group played as regional support for heavy music's heaviest hitters before embarking on a co-headlining nationwide tour with InVoker and Vessels, titled the "Tune Down for What? Tour." With one immensely successful stretch of live performances under their belt, and a critically acclaimed display of hyper-dissonant heaviness in the form of their debut EP to match, in fall of 2015, the band took off on their second co-headlining and EP support tour with U.S. Heavyweight legends A Legacy Unwritten--titled "Tales from the Guttour." Meeting with continued success in every venture, the band's intense work ethic and overwhelmingly aggressive style of ultra-heavy deathcore earned them a spot on True Initiative Management's roster--one already packed with enormous talent.
With most of 2015 in the rear view mirror, and a wide-open 2016 ahead of them, this Filthy quartet are poised to continue their dominion over the world of downtempo deathcore, be it with tours, terrifying new tunes or both. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears pressed to the ground--because before you know it, both will be flooded with Filth.
