Upstate NY's Surmiser are a grunge, hard rock and post punk marriage who play every note with the conviction of lifers who have long since given up the notion of turning back. The band is an excellent power trio and have just released their buzzed about latest effort Hold The Static. Songs about depression, addiction and self assessment pair with focused but inspired soul eruptions that take you on a journey through a wide range of emotions. Surmiser are very much worth checking out, constantly working on ways to expand their impact and body of songs to mirror their experiences into something representative to their values in sonic form.

With mesmerizing guitar lines and fluid fretboard work, it’s not hard to believe that both guitarists in the band received musical teutelage from AJ Minette of The Human Abstract.Add to My Radar
The World We Knew is back with DEATH DEALER (BlkHeart Group), a record the hard working and explosive live act vowed to make their best and most well rounded yet. Along with the new Bury Your Dead it is sure to be one of the most energetic releases in Metalcore this year and is a great place to discover the band if you have somehow missed them already. I have seen them live twice at various Stillborn events and they leveled the room on both occasions. Don’t underestimate these guys!
