Bad Omens‘ self-titled debut full-length has multiple personalities, but like your favorite on-screen psychopaths, that’s part of its dark charm. Standard but well done metalcore ragers like “Exit Wounds” and “Malice” show Bad Omens acting boisterously tough, while “F E R A L” rides a slower, nü metal rock vibe and soft tunes like “Enough, Enough Now” and “Crawl” are vulnerable and desperate. Maybe this is the mark of a band that hasn’t quite figured out their own identity yet, but in the process of trying to riddle it out they’ve come up with an impressive first record.
Alteras is the latest band to be added to the Revival Recordings roster and their new full-length is coming up fast! You can get the pre-order of Grief here, or you can wait until the release date which is coming around the corner on August 5th. Their premiere single, “Could Ever Love,” showcases the band’s clean vocals and melodic power, but stick around and you’ll see there’s definitely an impressive heaviness to this band.
