AVIATOR (US) + ATLAS (BE) + FALL OF MESSIAH (FR)
AVIATOR (US - No Sleep Records): Aviator is a 5-piece temper tantrim from New England. The band orders tones in succession, combination, and temporal relationships to produce compositions having unity and continuity. Then they scream over them.
ATLAS (BE): They hide underneath the city streets. They are married to the night. And their stories are not for the men of day. The songs breath maturity and the variating songstructures show that Atlas has grown in how to deal with their demons: more thoughtful and with a glimpse of hope.
FALL OF MESSIAH (FR - Holy Roar / I Corrupt Records): This french post-hardcore band with strong math-rock hints and screamo feels worked on this album for over two years and the result is a brilliant concept album mixing genres and sounds.
