Seems like a gpod time to ask: I'm looking for a punk / hardcore / metalcore / aggressive band that is doing things differently and aren't just one of "13,000" bands sounding the same. Bands like The Chariot and letlive. are stabs in the right direction, but anything really interesting and groundbreaking going on with aggressive music in 2013? Any recs are appreciated.

I get the need for double-bass driven sound of bands like August Burns Red (who would you say pioneered that sound?).. every new generation needs to musically rebel against what their parents listen to, and "punk" and "hardcore" in their precious incarnations sound like old, classic rock to young teens now. Play a song from a killer band like Gorilla Biscuits next to even the shittiest 2013 metalcore bands to most young teens, and you'll see their amazement that we once considered a sound like GB to be even remotely heavy and mosh-ready.

Here's to hoping that someone does something really awesome with this "new sound".. and here's to wondering what the next "heavy" will be.

Most people that like punk music ...

Not sure if you're a 7S / KS fan, but his solo tour life and career is fascinating and worth digging into. How he makes a living, booking house shows, etc., is pretty insightful.

If you haven't heard, but Deafheaven.

I did listen to Sunbather once, and it's something I'd like to get back to, even if the vocals aren't immediately engaging.

I think it's a record that will unfold and expose its beauty after repeated listens. I need to sit down with it again soon, thanks for the reminder.
