THE WORD ALIVE Keep Nu-Djent Alive With New Song "Trapped"
Back in May of 2014, I wrote about the rise of nu-djent, think Linkin Park with Meshuggah riffs, and honestly I sort of forgot about it, until I heard today's new track from The Word Alive.
These dudes are livin' it. They're about to release their fourth album, Dark Matter, on March 18th, via Fearless Records, and this is totally realized active radio nu-djent… by which I mean, it's a catchy song with some interesting breakdowns that is sure to get picked up by the Octanes of the world. Most importantly, it'll surely sell some records. Take a listen:
If your preferred band of choice is Suffocation or Dying Fetus, this isn't really for you, but if you happen to enjoy a band like Sevendust or perhaps even a band like Animals As Leaders or Periphery, this is right up your ally.
