German metalcore quintet Rising Insane want to reach out to the world with their new album 'Afterglow', centred around all-important topics including mental health, abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder. We caught up with the band following the release to discuss their formation, ambitions, influences and more.
As Everything Unfolds are changing up the way modern metal and post hardcore music sounds by bringing their fresh blend of melodic vocals and heavy riffs to the scene. They released their debut album 'Within Each Lies The Other' earlier this year and are now set to support Holding Absence across the UK and Europe later this year. We spoke to vocalist Charlie Rolfe backstage at the Download Pilot event all about the bands journey, the reception to the record, digitally connecting with fans and the bands Heavy Music Awards nomination.
