POD or ‘Payable On Death’ as their acronym so cheerfully stands for, these are American rockers with a Christian message who supply some adrenalinising nu-metal/rock in the deal (such as the anthemic ‘Alive’). Guaranteed to awaken you, if not in the spiritual sense.
Alien Ant Farm proved themselves to have both a quirky sense of humour and an ear for blending upbeat nu-metal with sweet melodies with their first two singles (‘Smooth Criminal’ and ‘Movies’). Yet, with ‘Anthology’, AAF cemented their place as one of the more mature and talented Nu-Metal bands to appear. Five albums in, they continue to deliver infectious riffs and well-written material, which proves that singing meaningfully about love in metal doesn’t mean ‘reach for the razors’.
‘68 are an American post-hardcore/alternative rock/blues rock duo from Atlanta, Georgia. The band consists of vocalist/guitarist Josh Scogin (formerly of Norma Jean and The Chariot) and drummer Michael McClellan (formerly of Becoming the Archetype and Young Carolina). Taking a splash of roots, a soulful yearning for mid century Americana and the fiery passion of post punk, they combine the scratchy rock of Nirvana’s ‘Bleach’ with the grind of The Black Keys.
