The metal genre is one that has changed and evolved even more than the heavyweight hip-hop genre, with fans engaging in bitter argument as to what the true definition of metal music is. Keeping as loose a definition as possible, take a look at these 3 rising metal bands you need to start rocking out to.
Based in California, Entheos is considered a progressive metal band that is somewhat of a Frankenstein of talent from other bands (Animals As Leaders, Animosity, Faceless etc.) They have a very weighty sound without sounding too distorted, making them pretty accessible to a new generation of metalheads.
2. Genocide Pact
With an attention-grabbing name, Genocide Pact is bringing in a new wave of death metal fans and is somewhat responsible for the genre’s comeback in recent years. With a raw and filthy sound, they definitely bring a 90’s style of aggressive music that will be refreshing to older fans and intriguing to new ones.
3. Moon Tooth
Described as a more psychedelic take on the style of metal legends Mastodon, Moon Tooth brings a ‘stoner metal’ appeal that’s mixed with clean vocals that a wider audience can enjoy.
