    1. : Alive Like Me – Only Forever

      Posted on in Uncategorized

      Alive Like Me is a band based in Oregon. The quintet is releasing their debut album through Rise Records on Tuesday, October 7th. It’s hard to place the entirety of Only Forever into one specific genre. Contextually, they have some of the standard Rise Records post-hardcore/metalcore sound, including, but not limited to: a gifted singer, double bass drums overlapping with breakdown riffs, and a ton of production glazed on top. With this comes catchy melodies that you might find stuck in your head, and maybe even a guilty pleasure while you’re stomping in your house to Blacklisted for real hardcore. Nonetheless, for a debut, this album will find its place in the industry.
