Backjumper - Across The Deadline

Band request from Italy.

I am not always in the mood for metal-core but when I am, Backjumper ticks all the right boxes. Mixing up elements of thrash and modern hardcore, the sound is thick and powerful with a good feel of groove and urgency. Lots of lightning fast guitar riffs are on show and the band have masterful technique and skill.

Vocal are delivered with growls or screams and mesh really well with all the instruments. The production is top-notch and pushes every level up to make all the songs sound massive and intense. This would probably appeal to people into The Black Dahlia Murder or possibly 36 Crazyfists.
