For The Fallen Dreams
For The Fallen Dreams
In today's hardcore/metal scene, it's easy for anyone to become jaded by the constant clones of, what is basically, the same band with hundreds of different names. We've all heard it; the same riff accompanied by the growling vocals and simultaneous "chug-chug" breakdowns. So, we wait and maybe search the music section on Myspace for a breath of fresh air. Thankfully, hidden in the obscure depths of the internet are bands that give this genre hope, and if you look hard enough, you can find them.

One of these noteworthy bands is Lansing, Michigan's well kept secret, For the Fallen Dreams. Formed in late 2003 and recently signing with Rise Records (The Devil Wears Prada, Drop Dead Gorgeous) in the summer of 2007, these young men show incredible promise through songs that showcase poignant and powerful writing, both lyrically and musically while still staying in touch with their hardcore/metal roots. Their music displays a well-done balance of metal and melody. Guitarists, Jim Hocking and Chris Cain show a variety of ranges while shifting back and forth between hard-hitting metal riffs and some rather melodic guitar lines. Given their ability to draw the listener in with brutally honest lyrics about life, relationships, and struggle, the band shows solidarity for their future as a band to be taken seriously.

With 2010 shaping up to be a pretty big year for For the Fallen Dreams, I think we'll be hearing a lot more from them. Dylan, Jim, Chris, Joe and Andrew certainly seem to be on their way to setting the bar for the future of hardcore.
Philadelphia, PA
As graduated alumni from the tasty menagerie of bands that the Chicago metal scene produced, Deadships has inherited the proverbial torch – the deep understanding of metal music that only a devoted community can effectively nurture. Every show is instilled with a courageous amount of life force. Professionalism and dedication may as well be the bands middle and maiden names.

They've devoted a Herculean amount of labor and awed many a crowd. Their travels are commendable; their sacrifices, immeasurable. And, between you and me, with the pace they've set their music is going to be heard from whichever horizon that endless road takes them for a long, long time.
Persistent Shadow
Persistent Shadow started out in 2009 as a rock band from Charlotte, North Carolina. The band was formed by Casey Helms, Thomas Ownbey, Tyler Medlin, and Lucas Parot. After many line up changes and a switch in music style to metalcore, the new line up consist of Samuel Boatright,Casey Helms, Colin Michael, and Logan Napier. Nick Currier. The new look and sound of Persistent Shadow was brought about in 2013.
