It’s no secret that metalcore became stale a long, long time ago, and that merely the mention of it tends to make many folks cringe. If you take the time to look a little closer though, you will find that there are still a handful of bands that are improving on the genre and producing quality music. I personally still have a soft spot for the genre because it was the first type of heavy music that I really got in to, so I love listening to a group that can craft great songs that don’t fall into a simple series of endless breakdowns.
Progressive metalcore outfit Erra definitely fall into that category, and they’ve just released a lyric video for a fantastic new song called ‘Pulse‘. The song comes from their upcoming sophomore album Augment, and you can hear it below:
Their sound doesn’t seem to have changed drastically since their debut album Impulse, but that was an excellent record, so no complaints here. Augment will be available on October 29th via Tragic Hero Records, but you can go ahead and pre-order it now if you’d like. Get excited, and we’ll be sure to keep you up to date on any other developments in the meantime.
