Currents: making waves in the djent-metal underground
Currents match banging tunes with dark matters
Currents have been pummelling ears with their dynamic blend of djent and raging metalcore since 2011, but the Connecticut quintet have resolutely stepped things up a gear. After two EPs and several line-up changes, when the band hired new vocalist Brian Wille, the final jigsaw piece they were missing fell into place. The band’s debut full-length, The Place I Feel Safest, has just landed and is the sound of a band truly hitting their stride, a punishing mix of intricate guitar parts and bouncy choruses influenced by Architects and Northlane, all drenched in cold atmosphere.
