Hot New Band: Shattered Sun
From the heart of Texas to modern metal glory, meet Shattered Sun.
Metalcore continues to find itself in exceptional health as of late, and another contender to its increasingly contested throne has emerged. With a sound marrying the biggest hooks and grittiest riffs of the post-Killswitch set to a gleaming undercarriage hewn from 90s groove metal muscle, Shattered Sun could well be the new darlings of 21st century American metal.
Emerging from the dusty suburbs of Alice, Texas, this six-man wrecking crew have impeccable metal credentials – they are managed by Testament’s Chuck Billy and metal biz legends Johnny K and Maria Ferrero – and a debut album, Hope Within Hatred, that promises to blow the competition out of the water.
