Hot New Band: Fathoms
Fathoms' raging, mutant metalcore is taking them on one hell of a trip.
Lurking in the grey area between crushing metal and more hardcore-tinged fare, Brighton-based scoundrels Fathoms’ cross-pollinated assault won’t appeal to everyone – including our own reviewer, who awarded their debut album, Lives Lived, 5/10 last issue.
However, there are few more convincing examples of the way modern heaviness is increasingly driven by a post-iPod pick’n’mix approach. With everything from bowel-rattling deathcore to the angry end of post-hardcore, this band offer further evidence that the UK is developing its own unique strains of savagery and providing some much-needed catharsis for everyone involved along the way.
