Vesta Collide‘s new album New Obsession drops January 20th and they absolutely slay it with a purely great metalcore album. The debut record is a great blend of unclean and clean vocals with just the right amount of synth to back it up. What really sets this album apart from other metalcore albums is the haunting, ominous backing track that can be found in songs like “Death Spell” and “I Can’t Sleep.”
New Obsession opens up strong with “Death Spell,” setting the tone for what the rest of the album has to offer. A personal favorite from this album would have to be “Hallucination.” It really stood out to me as having everything a great metalcore song should have and is my top pick for this album. If Vesta Collide keep putting out such great albums like this I could see them being a huge up-and-comer in the scene, touring with the likes of Miss May I, We Came As Romans and Ice Nine Kills!
For those of you who have never heard of this band before but really enjoy great metalcore I suggest you pick up this album when it drops. It does not disappoint! And check them out on there headlining tour right now and on the west coast leg of Alesana‘s Ten Frail Years Of Vanity And Wax Tour!
