Ever Forthright started making buzz overnight it seems, and with the recent inclusion of ex-Periphery vocalist Chris Barretto, everyone into this style of music seems to be eagerly awaiting for their debut album. At least I am; the song they posted a week or so back (I lose track of time!) was an interesting mix of djent with a smooth jazz break that is certainly unique.

Last night, however, Ever Forthright posted a new and considerably heavier song called “The Counter Shift.” No jazz breaks or sax playing here; it’s more reminiscent of mathcore with occasional clean singing, sounding like newer Protest the Hero at times. Needless to say, I’m digging it. The song carries a great energy throughout. Listen below.

Ever Forthright’s debut EP (uuuuugh) is due out early 2011.
