  • 2 Bands starting with the letter I, my choices are:

1) In Evil Hour

Style: Punk / Rock / Hardcore
Country: UK

This is a band I've discovered recently, so I don't know much about them... yet.

Their style is rebellious and their lyrics are very critical of today's world, specially about topics such as the destruction of our planet, capitalism and its foolish wars, as you can see by this small excerpt of the song Paveway IV:

We built the bombs, we sold the bombs
Now drop the bombs on those ones
Who turned against us

Then make it television
In selling on we take up arms
We share the blood
With those ones who oppress and murder
Paveway IV nation building

This is definitely an Anti-Establishment group... and that probably mean they won't ever know what mainstream success is. ๐Ÿ™„

Alice on the vocals proves that she can do a bit more than most Punk singers, by singing, screaming and even growling... She has quite some vocal range, specially for a Punk rocker.

Here's the videoclip for the song Paveway IV. The song has only 3 minutes... but a lot to say!

2) Infected Rain

Style: Metal / Metalcore
Country: Republica Moldova

This is one of my favourite bands. So much that I already seen them live in Moldova, Austria and Switzerland! ๐Ÿ˜

I got addicted to their sound and to Elena Cataraga's vocals from the first time I listened to them. They have been evolving so well that they were able to recently sign a contract with Napalm Records! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I find it very interesting the way they incorporate a scratching sound, usually associated to Electronic Music, in their Metal songs. And miss Cataraga, wow, she can do clean vocals as perfectly as she can scream... and she doesn't stop there. She can even growl like a demon, when needed! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

This song is called Mold and it's an excellent example of what these guys can do:

A common topic in their songs is time and how we waste it...

I hope you have enjoyed these 2 crazy songs. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
