Concealed Reality – Synapses (Review)

Concealed RealityConcealed Reality are a Belgian metalcore band and this is their latest EP.

I like a bit of modern heavy music when it’s suitably aggressive, but also when it has sufficient depth. Concealed Reality play metalcore influenced by the early 00s sound, only updated with a contemporary delivery and with some other musical enhancements. Continue reading

Unseen Faith Logo

As I sit here typing these words, listening once again to Unseen Faith’s debut album Waver, I’m struck by just how truly passionate and engaging the band’s performance is. This comes across strongly in the vocals, of course, but it’s more than just the singer’s caustic shouts and growls; this passionate energy seems to infect every pore of the band’s delivery.
