So I'm just going to trow a few bands out there, some will fit the bill perfectly while others won't. What they do have in common is that I don't hear their name thrown around quite as much as I feel they deserve.
First up is Terrorhorse. They released an EP and then a full length, broke up and some members formed Mulletcorpse. They fall into my category of "if only they'd released one more album" because on their full-length they really went all out with what they did on the EP and put in some things that they hadn't really tried before, a little clean vocals and such. I realize that bands usually break up because something wasn't working but I can still dream.
One of the bands I feel like could constitute a logical step forward from Terrorhorse would be Dissipate.
Speaking of bands with full lengths on the horizon The Crinn have apparently sent their newest one in for mixing so it can't be too long before we get to hear some new music.
The Crinn's latest full length had some amazing music and while I have nothing inherently bad to say about the vocals I do hope the dude allows himself to experiment more on the new album. Their first EP (which I referenced heavily in my Vocal Character blog) had some crazy vocals and while I don't think that exact style might have fit in on Dreaming Saturn I think a little more range and dynamic would have done a lot.
Speaking of vocal character, have you ever heard a raving lunatic speaking Czech? I'm not sure I have but this probably comes close:
Speaking of audible bass (dem smooth connections yo):
I guess I'll let that be the end of this post, hope some of you heard something new here, if not here's one last try, Italy's Acheode:
PS. Because I know someone out there will point this out I decided to add a PS to tackle it beforehand:
I realize that this is not even close to being the most unknown mathcore bands out there, most of them have/had labels behind them but I decided to tackle the more known lesser-known bands first if that makes sense, I'll scour the bottom of the underground soon to bring you obscure gems from the pits of the Mathcore Index.
