Rocks Like: The Word Alive, Attack Attack!, I Am Abomination
Check Out: Into The Maelstrom
Formed in 2006 in the musical ghost town of Williamsport, Pennsylvania—“The only standing venue is one we helped revive,” says vocalist Trevor Pool—this quintet fuse bone-crushing riffs and melodic vocals with grandiose, story-oriented lyrics. They’ve dubbed the results “fantasy metalcore. We strive to create stories and fantasies out of musical notes that accent every word of the lyrics,” says Pool. Several U.S. tours are in the works in support of their debut full-length, Into The Maelstrom.
