Deathcore has come a long way since its early days. Bands such as Whitechapel and The Acacia Strain have been doing it for over a decade now, and even Despised Icon are back at it again. It’s not a resurgence of the genre so much as it is a continuing sort of staying power that it brings with it. The fact it has endured this long is simply astounding, because I never thought it would, quite honestly. Empyrean are a deathcore band that are looking to continue that trend of keeping the genre alive, and you can check out a song they think does the trick below!
It’s a pretty cool song. I don’t like the gutturals as much as his normal higher screams, but I supposed that’s simply based on my taste. The music itself is pretty punishing stuff, and makes you want to bash someone’s face in. It’s no frills deathcore that almost retains a classic vibe to it. This sounds just like something that could have come out in the genre’s infancy and people would have aloved, and I still think that people will enjoy this today. Be sure to check out the band’s Facebook for more info and tour dates!
