Pandora's Wake

Pandora's Wake is a rather cool metalcore band, with an image that immediately made me think of them as poserish they blew me away with a very heavy sound that features some brilliant compositions. To say Pandora's Wake is a pleasant surprise is an understatement, to say that they are one of the greatest young metalcore bands that I have heard in a while is the truth. They are right and have solid production, this is no high school-core band that tries to be br00t4l Pandora'sWake knows what they're doing and they do it right. The guitar work on their EP is heavy and filled with a ton of great riffs. There are also some pretty cool solos that add a lot of flavor to the mix. Overallthe thrash metal feel of the playing adds a lot of very solid energy to the music. The bass playing is very solid and really shines on the breakdowns in songs like Impact. There is a certain rawness here that adds a ton of taste to this band. I really like the drumming, it is very accurate and features a couple of super technical almost djenty fills. I think this adds a unique side to the music and shows that there is more to this band than meets the eye. Finally the growls are rather powerful and remind me a lot of those in August Burns Red. They have the same anger to them but are relatively light. In conclusion, Pandora's Wake is a very heavy, very cool metalcore band so go check them out!
