Forgiven Rival

Dynamics often define the metalcore sound, with quiet parts often illustrating just how heavy a band can be, by simple juxtaposition. Forgiven Rival's 'The Grey,' from 'This Is a War,' their new album due on Indianola Records, is one such song. Noisecreep is thrilled to premiere the song, a metalcore beast comprised of equal parts moshable breakdowns and emo-tinted harmonies and melodies.

"When writing 'The Grey,' we wanted to write something we really wanted to hear," Forgiven Rival guitarist/vocalist Pete Fabrizio told Noisecreep. "Heavy verses, breakdowns, a catchy chorus and something that the crowd could sing along with us. I think we pulled it off, because to this day 'The Grey' is one of our most, if not the most popular song we have and something the fans look forward to at our shows."

Sing along now and check it out for yourself. It'll fill your brain and your ears.

Forgiven Rival, who hail from down under in Australia, have not played a date on U.S. soil yet, but hopefully, they will get their butts on our soil soon. They also have the distinction of being the first non-U.S. band signed to Indianola Records.
