For The Fallen Dreams
In today's hardcore/metal scene, it's easy for anyone to become jaded by the constant clones of, what is basically, the same band with hundreds of different names. We've all heard it; the same riff accompanied by the growling vocals and simultaneous "chug-chug" breakdowns. So, we wait and maybe search the music section on Myspace for a breath of fresh air. Thankfully, hidden in the obscure depths of the internet are bands that give this genre hope, and if you look hard enough, you can find them.
One of these noteworthy bands is Lansing, Michigan's well kept secret, For the Fallen Dreams. Formed in late 2003 and recently signing with Rise Records (The Devil Wears Prada, Drop Dead Gorgeous) in the summer of 2007, these young men show incredible promise through songs that showcase poignant and powerful writing, both lyrically and musically while still staying in touch with their hardcore/metal roots. Their music displays a well-done balance of metal and melody. Guitarists, Jim Hocking and Chris Cain show a variety of ranges while shifting back and forth between hard-hitting metal riffs and some rather melodic guitar lines. Given their ability to draw the listener in with brutally honest lyrics about life, relationships, and struggle, the band shows solidarity for their future as a band to be taken seriously.
With 2010 shaping up to be a pretty big year for For the Fallen Dreams, I think we'll be hearing a lot more from them. Dylan, Jim, Chris, Joe and Andrew certainly seem to be on their way to setting the bar for the future of hardcore.
Upon This Dawning
Hailing from Verona, Italy, pulverizing sextet Upon This Dawning has been honing their melodically brand of metal. Touring incessantly in Italy, the band quickly attracted a rabid following in their home country, releasing EP "Count The Seconds Until Your Last Breath", and gained new fans in each city at their shows throughout Europe. The band has shared stages with some of the biggest names in the scene including Asking Alexandria, Underoath, Dance Gavin Dance, blessthefall, Piece the Veil, Motionless in White and In Fear and Faith, and is endorsed by Truth Custom Drums. Upon This Dawning is set to release their first album with Fearless Records in fall 2012.
Sworn In is a metalcore band from Grayslake, Illinois. The band was formed in 2011 and consists of vocalist Tyler Dennen, guitarists Zakary Gibson and Eugene Kamlyuk, bassist Derek "Slim" Bolman, and drummer Chris George.
They are currently signed to Razor & Tie and released their debut album The Death Card in 2013. It charted at number 184 at the Billboard 200 charts.
