I am super thrilled to bring you an exclusive stream of the new TAKE Ep. This independent Las Vegas, NV. metal-hardcore-rock hybrid band were around for a few years last decade. They went on hiatus and a member went on to front The Forerunner. Well after several years off this explosive heavy band is back and with a brand new ep to prove once again how powerful their music can be. It’s edgy, it is abrasive, and it is going to hit you over the head like a two ton brick of pure adrenaline. Step into the pit and prepare to throwdown with one of Nevada’s best kept secrets. This my friends is the band TAKE and I present their ep, “The Dead Will Rise”. Listen below. The band’s ep will be out by this Friday on all digital networks. Now available on all digital networks: [iTunes] [Google Play] [Amazon] [Spotify] Continued →

Gaffer Project’s first full-length is a promising emotional hardcore release that touches on elements of Attalus, Hotel Books, and Rival Choir but ultimately feels disjointed musically.
Do you ever sit and ponder why you’ve been hurt, the reasons, and seek a little relief from the trials? Well this song spells it out and in doing so, makes for a truly unique listen from start to finish. I am so impressed with these guys and glad they got back together. This is a song about hope, about answers, and a call to action. Get ready for TAKE to blast your stereo with their passionate, furious, and pure aggressive music. I’m telling you this is solid stuff. Listen below to their new song “Abandoned” off their upcoming album titled “The Dead Will Rise”.
