Manchester’s famous for producing a lot of crap acts in the 80’s and 90’s that for some reason became massive. Fast forward (quite) a few years and the city is trying to make up for it with the likes of Bury the Memory, five young lads with attitude and a bevy of post-hardcore / metal tracks to prove it.
Formed in 2013, they’ve slowly put together enough tracks for an EP which they’re working on at the moment. A couple of songs have been released to the general public – that’s us – and I’ve slapped one below for you. They’re not skimping on the production, either. Patron Sound worked on production and editing, ably assisted by Chris Krummet (Alesana, Sleeping With Sirens, The Devil Wears Prada).
With only a couple of tracks to offer, I had a job picking between them but I’ve opted for the more recent – “Time to Rise”. It’s a great mixture of post-hardcore vocals and attitude with some blistering metal riffs and drumming. A genuine hybrid piece. If you’re suitably impressed, go and download a decent version from their bandcamp page and throw a couple of quid their way.
Keep an eye out for these guys. They’re touring in February and I reckon could be well worth a few quid to see live:
- 19th – Retro Bar, Manchester
- 20th – Lounge 41, Workington
- 21st – The Fenton, Leeds
- 22nd – The Rigger, Staffordshire
