[NEWS] HUNDREDTH – Suffer

本週分享過南卡羅來納州的旋律硬核樂團 Hundredth 的新作 SUFFER。Hundredth 一直是我們非常喜愛的新世代 melodic hardcore 團隊 —— 他們經常用生活中的困難和體驗作為歌詞靈感來源,而且理念不僅停留在音樂層面上,更發起多個世界性慈善項目貢獻社會,將言語變成行動。Hundredth 剛剛推出新視覺效果視頻 Suffer,並將收錄在即將發行的專輯RARE中。此曲可見樂團音樂方向的最指標,但仍保留了其一貫的能量和重型之感。

Earlier this week, we have shared South Carolina melodic hardcore outfits Hundredth’s new track “SUFFER.” The band is always one of our favorite in this genre since they joined the scene. The boys frequently use hardship and experience life as their lyrical inspiration. They also initiate multiple charitable to turn words into action. The band have revealed a revealed new visual video from forthcoming album RARE. “Suffer” is the latest indicator of the band’s profoundly different new direction. Its swathes of sound speak a different language of heaviness to the band’s previously hardcore oeuvre, yet retains Hundredth’s innate energy and heaviness.
