RISE Self-re­liant, metal­lic hard­core with a so­cially con­scious kick

This Texas met­al­core quar­tet formed in 2009 with a strong

DIY ethic. They de­signed their own mer­chan­dise, self-re­leased their de­but EP, and toured for some time be­fore be­ing signed to Artery and Rise Records. Matthew Hon­ey­cutt is a fierce front­man de­ter­mined to write mean­ing­ful lyrics and un­afraid to ad­dress racism, hu­man rights, de­pres­sion and be­yond. Com­pleted by gui­tarist and vo­cal­ist Nolan Ash­ley, bassist

Eric English and drum­mer Isaac lamb, the band de­liver a low, crush­ing brand of met­al­core sealed in a hard­core coat­ing that brings the power of early Hate­breed to mind. No­mad shows their grip­pingly heavy sound grow­ing more con­fi­dent and rounded and their song­writ­ing more dis­tinc­tive. Crash­ing along with mon­strous riffs, fierce blast­beats, and tough vo­cals, there’s rarely an ex­pected break­down to be found and both Bel­liger­ent and No Kin will prove wildly pit-wor­thy.
