It’s rare that a band comes along that truly excites me, but Loathe have done just that with their debut full-length ‘The Cold Sun’. There’s a post-hardcore band at the core of what they do but it’s supplemented with elements of tech-metal which makes the whole thing ludicrously heavy, technically sublime and most of all: exciting. It’s likely that you’ll hear be banging on about this band for the rest of the year now, so you’ve been warned!
