That’s roughly two weeks running that Singapore has come through showing the world some legit melodic hardcore – not the progressive metalcore bands who have lately been masquerading as melodic hardcore. Singapore hardcore band Virtues have just dropped a 4 song EP entitled What’s Left of Yourself. Opening track doesn’t hide the band’s obvious influences – the entire Comeback Kid vibe is clear and they’re proud of the fact – so proud of it that they invited former vocalist of Comeback Kid, Scott Wade, to feature on the track.
The rest of the EP continues down the line of straight up melodic hardcore but have updated the sounds with some badass heaviness like on the track Circles.
Go get on this shit…and if you haven’t heard the other melodic hardcore band that espouses the sound, vibe and values of melodic hardcore – then go hit up this link and check out a band called Abatoir Blues: https://uniteasia.org/premiere-singapore-melodic-hardcore-band-abattoir-blues-unleash-debut-ep/
Good job fellas!
