With a signing to Southern Lord and members list that includes stints in Trap Them, Shai Hulud, Misery Signals and, of all things, Fallout Boy, it’s probably fair to say that Enabler have a pedigree. And while the idea of a ‘supergroup’ tends to bring out the cynics in flocks, upon first listen of their new album All Hail The Void it’s hard to deny that they do themselves justice. Comprised of crusty, metallic hardcore that seats itself in the same school of ‘Entombed-core’ as bands like All Pigs Must Die and the aforementioned Trap Them — it’s exactly the kind of violent aural massage I needed to start this week and you can catch the full album stream too over at BlowTheScene.com before it drops tomorrow!
Things have been a bit rough for I Am Abomination since their debut album To Our Forefathers. They’ve got through would-be crippling lineup changes that left them just with their guitarist and vocalist and they’ve parted ways with label Good Fight Music. Despite all of this, it’s good to see that they’re still actively making music. Their progressive post-hardcore sound reminiscent of Protest the Hero as if fronted by Fallout Boy vocalist Patrick Stump is actually quite good; soulful singing, technical musicianship, and hooks left and right!
Their new single ‘Hangin’ On‘ is now available on iTunes. You can stream it above. The track will presumably appear on an upcoming album that the duo are hard at work on. We’ll be sure to fill you in as soon as there’s more word on these guys.
