That New Band Smell - Red Enemy

Post categories:

ATL | 17:36 UK time, Tuesday, 14 February 2012

 

We've decided to don our studded gauntlets and metal it up a bit on the New Band Smell this week so Carrie Davenport is here bringing you the newest loud angry riff makers to get you moshing along to lyrics your granny wouldn't approve of!

*****************************************

Ilenkus

Hailing from Galway these loud angry noise makers have recently signed to the Belfast-based Savour Your Scene record label. Their music is a complex cocktail with tunes which will appeal to fans of everything from Tool to Dillinger Escape Plan and leave everyone bowing in respect to their techinical ability. 

As I Breathe

Mixing metal with occasional flickers of dubstep like the hip young things that they are, far from being gimicky As I Breathe have some great tunes and serious riffs to back them up. Definitely worth a listen.

Red Enemy

There are times when you need to listen to something angry enough to make you want to break things and that's why you need Red Enemy in your lives. They've supported hardcore heroes like Parkway Drive, TesseracT and Your Demise since forming in Dublin in 2008.  With guitars and vocals as aggressive as an agitated pitbull layered over driving rhythms and surprisingly melodic interludes, the recent release of their second EP "What We Are Contained In, Is What We Are Worth" should help this band really break out from the underground hardcore scene to really make waves of their own.

Red enemy are supporting Norma Jean in Dublin on Feb 29th but if that's a bit of a hefty taxi fare for a gig why not do one better and try to join the band! They're currently looking for a new guitarist to join the ranks for their next tour so if you like what you hear and you're a bit of an axe-wielding maniac then get in touch with the guys here.

If you or anyone you know is making music then you know what you have to do, upload it to the BBC Introducing Uploader. It doesn't matter what style or genre the song is, as long as it's good and you believe in it.
