IN LEAGUE WITH LIONS
IN LEAGUE WITH LIONS is a Post Hardcore band from Salisbury, Maryland.
"EXPOSURE" is the bands first release to date. These guys play a very popular style of
music that seems like many bands these days play. They take Post Hardcore music and
kind of polish it up a bit and add in some melodic sounds all through out. They do add in
some Metalcore elements, which are mostly in the faster more shredding guitar parts. I do
like the heavy chugging sound they have in a lot of their songs a lot. I am not a big fan of
this Post Hardcore movement that is huge now, but these guys have enough elements of
Hardcore & Metalcore mixed in for me to dig them. I'm not sure if straight up Post
Hardcore or straight up Metalcore fans will be heavily into these guys, but they do have an
equal amount of each that they blur the line between the two styles. The vocals also follow
the same pattern as the music. They have thick throaty Metalcore screams / growls mixed
with old school Hardcore screams as well as Post Hardcore melodic vocals. I preferred the
heavier stuff over the melodic, but these guys balance it out pretty evenly. If you like
bands like BLESSTHEFALL, FIT FOR A KING, PARKWAY DRIVE, ESCAPE THE
FATE & BRING ME THE HORIZON, then you'll love IN LEAGUE WITH LIONS.
