    1. Album Review : Exotype – Exotype

      Posted on in Album Review

      Rise Records strikes again. This time they are arming their musical artillery with the debut self-titled from Exotype. The album is for metalcore/prog-metal tastes with a bit of electronic, with the over saturation of production making every moment seem absolutely huge. This style of production seems to be the mark Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria) leaves on every project he is tasked with. The band relies on powerful breakdowns with prog influences driving twitchy guitar riffs.


    2. : 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.
