4. Beautiful In Your Apocalypse

Combining members and ex-members from Abominant; Fatal Step, Astrum Empyrean Asunder and Assisting Sorrow, to name a few, these Horror-Punk Metaller’s from the US have held nothing back with their debut EP Sleepwalking into Armageddon.This 4 track EP combines a multitude of contrasting yet complimentary elements that guides their sound to a much deeper and darker level and despite the un-polished recording (which I personally think adds to their charm) it’s safe to say that this EP is a promising insight into the bands future recordings.

Incorporating darker gothic elements, futuristic and horror-film-esque synths with raw punk and black metal blastbeats, it is not surprising that this 3 piece band are able to make such an incredible and in-depth sound.

Higgin’s gnarly vocals, cocktailed with Vega’s haunting female vocals add yet another dimension to their sound and this is what sets the band apart from other more-traditional punk and industrial bands.
