FROM FAR AWAY
"RECOVER / REPEAT"
AT YOUR COMMAND RECORDS
FROM FAR AWAY out of Maryland is a fairly new band on the scene. These guys
formed back in mid 2012 and have quickly built up a following. FROM FAR AWAY play
a Post Hardcore style of music. Their sound does pull from the old and new styles of
Hardcore. They have a really thick and heavy old school Hardcore sound that reminded me
of a lot of the stuff coming out of the '90's. They then blend in some more modern
Hardcore elements to round out their sound. They add in some influences of Metalcore,
which really comes through in some of the guitar work. Then they take some melodic Post
Hardcore, which mostly comes through in the melodic clean vocals. The vocals are also
mixed with some harsher more growling / screaming Hardcore / Metalcore type vocals. I
loved the really cool pounding groove that runs through the majority of their sound. I am
not a big fan of Post Hardcore bands, but these guys add in so much other elements that
made me really like these guys a lot. I kept listening to it over and over and over again.
There are a lot of bands out there playing this style, but these guys have enough flavouring
to make them stand out amongst the herd!
