Common Choir – Dive Bar Knight Life Pt 2: Colossally Caustic Metalcore

If you’re always on the lookout for the freshest Metalcore talent, you won’t have to look much further than Common Choir.

The standout single “Dive Bar Knight Life Pt 2” from their self-released EP is a cathartically volatile hit which is driven by pure unfaltering tensile momentum and soul slicing raw emotion.

You only need to listen to the tight synergy in to affirm that Common Choir is a powerhouse. From Dive Bar Knight Life Pt 2 you can expect consuming choruses and instrumental breakdowns which will leave any discerning metal fan with goosebumps. There’s no chance of missing the virtuosity of the bassist. The thunderous growls are enough to make you suspicious that he’s of relation to Thor.

And no review of Common Choir would be complete without mentioning the captivatingly dynamic vocals which consistently evolve in perfect synergy with the instrumentals. From throat-rippingly raw screams, to soaring vocal melodies, this monster of a track proves that the Minnesota band can offer it all.

You can check out the official video to Dive Bar Knight Life Pt 2 which was released on January 5th via YouTube.

Eu1ogy – Realist: There’s Genre Crossovers, Then There are Progressively Aggressive Takeovers


I’m not sure if Eu1ogy intended his latest single Realist to be as sexy as I found it, but there we have it. His aggressive approach to his sound won me over from the first verse. Rappers who can pull off the hardcore style are few and far between, the Baltimore based Hardcore Experimental artist is certainly up there with the best of them. As soon as the beat drops, your jaw follows suit as you drink in the progressive thrashing of the electronic beats wrapped around heavy guitar riffs to create a sound of impending doom that wouldn’t be out of place in a Resident Evil soundtrack. Eu1ogy’s gruff lyricism and the odd primal scream is enough to leave you weak at the knees.

Realist came from Eu10gy’s 2017 album Daggers, each of the 15 tracks are absolutely flawless, put together they create potentially the best Rap Metal cross over album I’ve had the pleasure of checking out. Track 3 ‘Snakes’ especially won me over. With better screamo vocals than Napalm Death, what’s not to love?

You can stream & download Eu1ogy’s latest track Realist from BandCamp along with the rest of his progressively violent tracks from Daggers.
