On Cette Erosion De Nous-Mêmes, Nesseria take more sonic risks than ever and they all pay off.
Since their inception in 2003, Nesseria have been in a constant state of stylistic evolution, refusing to stagnate creatively. The Orléans-based act began life with a spastic, grinding sound on their early demos and splits before pursuing a more blackened hardcore sound on their full-length releases, which reached its apex on 2014’s Fractures. Their third full-length recording, Cette Erosion De Nous-Mêmes, shows the band embarking on a new aural journey; presenting a staggering change in sound for a band with a history of dabbling in the more antisocial and gritty forms of extreme music.

Sprawling melancholia and metallic anguish collide on Shallov‘s sophomore full-length, Concrete & Glass.
The integration of screamo with elements of post-rock and post-hardcore has spawned quite a few critically-acclaimed acts over the years, including Envy and The Saddest Landscape to name a few. Shallov is yet another band to adopt this emotionally-charged sonic amalgam, and while they do not offer anything drastically different than their contemporaries, these Slovaks earn major props for possessing a tremendous amount of heart and gut-punching songwriting chops.
Japanese screamo/post-hardcore outfit Heaven in Her Arms recently debuted the official video for their track “Glare of the End”. The intricate and emotionally potent track, which comes from their new White Halo LP, is set to a collage of live performance clips directed by by Tamezawa Wataru. Check out the clip after the break.
Read our review of White Halo here.
“Epic” and “cinematic” are some of the more cliche terms used to describe a piece of music. But in the case of Heaven in Her Arms‘ third full-length recording, White Halo, these terms are more than applicable.
Following 2010’s sprawling, brooding Paraselene, White Halo shows this Japanese act pushing further and further away from where they started nearly 16 years ago. Picking up where its predecessor left off, White Halo continues to perfect the band’s stunning amalgam of post-hardcore, black metal and post-rock, while still staying true to their screamo roots. The result is an emotionally palpable record full of thrilling sonic turns and stellar musicianship.
