It’s been 15 years since the inception of Misery Signals, a cornerstone band in the hardcore scene, and only now is their full story being told. The band, who have been a major influence on many contemporary hardcore projects, have just released an emotional documentary entitled Yesterday Was Everything, directed by Matthew Mixon.

Five piece metalcore act Ellipses hailing from Litchfield, CT are exclusively premiering their EP Human right here at HXC. The six song release, featuring their unforgiving single “Harsh Upbringings,” is a proud display of unrelenting emotion. Despite it being early in their career, this band already bring memorable breakdowns and impressive shredding to the table. While the low-toned screaming and growling gives the band an intensely heavy sound, they are able to find just the right moments to sneak in melodic riffs, making for a dynamic listening experience.

North Carolina hardcore outfit Dwell released their latest album, Innate, via Blood & Ink Records on September 9th. We’ve teamed up with them to bring you their roaring new music video for “A Lie In Futility,” and we love it because it’s awesomely gruesome and heavy as hell.
From the band:
“‘A Lie In Futility’ is about if you believe the world is meaningless, then life will seem as if the world is crumbling and only feeds into that lie your cosmos consumes. If the world was meaningless, then the logic you used to justify your belief becomes meaningless also. The making of this video was an amazing experience and it was a pleasure working with Josh. We wanted the video itself to be somewhat dark and eerie and I think Josh [Jardim] did exactly what we were looking for. I hope everyone enjoys the video as much as we do.”
