Upon A Burning Body's music is generally listed as Deathcore (with additional influences from Groove and Southern Metal), but quite honestly, I personally fail to see the difference with the original definition of the term Metalcore (= a blending of Hardcore music with elements of the “Metal” - be it Black or Death – genre). Ach, well...everybody's entitled to their own view, right, but what eventually should prevail, is how the musicians see themselves!
Crosses (usually stylized as †††) is the musical side project of Deftones frontman Chino Moreno, guitarist Shaun Lopez and Chuck Doom. They al got together in 2011 to form this band. And although they got together in 2011, it took them until now to get their self-titled album released (except for en EP). But what to say about this record….well it’s certainly not something you would expect from Chino.
The Dillinger Escape Plan is a band which you love or hate, there's no in-between. The ones who love it are usually into the mathcore genre and the ones who hate it just think it's noise. No matter what side you're on, their records always raise voices and they always give us something to talk about, which is also the case with their brand new studio album.
