Leese – Say Goodbye: Meet Your New Guitar Hero

If it’s been a while since you’ve heard guitar licks slick enough to make your jaw-drop, delve into the arrestive debut single Say Goodbye by breaking Alt Rock artist Leese.

From Thrash to Speed Metal, to Melodic Rock which any fans of Incubus would appreciate, there’s no telling what kind of aural curveball Leese will throw at you next. But each of the seamless seismic shifts in style is as fixating as the last. The grungy Lo-Fi vocals are also an incredibly welcome addition to the perpetually evolving track.

Say Goodbye would have been a hit even if Leese only relied on their technical guitar ability, but there’s so much more in the dynamic mix. With the growling basslines around the ethereal Cradle of Filth-style atmospheric layers, and solos which would give Herman Lee a run for his money Leese is a magnetically absorbing track which you will undoubtedly want on your playlists.

It’s safe to say that we’re pretty stoked to hear what comes next.

Trigram – Assimilate: Move Over Rob Zombie

Orchestrating the perfect metal track is never an easy task, but Trigram come pretty close in their latest track Assimilate, the stand out track from their debut EP Assimilate.

It’s got everything any fan of the heavier genres could possibly need,

Yes, that includes one of the best guitar riffs that I’ve heard this year, combined with the bands pounding resonant percussion. The strong vocals behind the track turn this track into the ultimate metal anthem.

Whilst the band only formed in 2016, they’ve certainly not struggled putting their mark on the Hard Rock genre, the Chesterfield, New York band are delectably dark and have followed in the footsteps of the likes of Tool, Alice in Chains, Rob Zombie, Soil, Disturbed & Nine Inch Nails to offer a contemporary control of their sound.

Beyond the sound, the concept behind Assimilate is one that we can all relate, as it illustrates societies tendency to strive toward conformity through the parasitic nature of Social Media in a Charlie Brooker, Black Mirror style.
