Heavy metal juggernaut label Metal Blade Records just decided to sign and launch its own progressive metalcore band. And Beyond The Shore really looks like a band with a lot of potential. Hailing from Lexington, KY, they deliver a heavy dose of sharp and technical metalcore riffs and breakdowns, also featuring hardcore and deathcore influences in many passages.
This upcoming band released their debut EP “The Arctic Front” in 2009. Since then they’ve shard the stage with acts like Born Of Osiris, Shai Hulud, MyChildren MyBride, Of Machines, After The Burial and many more. Currently, they’re on tour in the US with Shai Hulud, Thy Will Be Done, and Atlas!
Thier debut album “Ghostwatcher will be released on April 2nd. Grab a pre-order here. From the samples, it really looks to have sumptuous production giving it a really incisive modern metal sound. Give a listen below to the sampler and the first two singles “Half Lived” and “Homewrecker”.
