US metalcore/alternative thrash metal outfit Shadows Fall have revealed the cover art for their upcoming new album, Fire From The Sky, which will be released via Razor & Tie on May 15th. The album artwork, created by Aaron Marsh of Forefathers, can be seen below. More album details were previously reported here.
I'm not one to judge a book by its cover, but I have a feeling this might turn out to be a lot less metalcore/thrash and a lot more deathcore.
I seriously doubt that. To be honest I've never seen any notable metalcore elements in this band aside from the vaguely core-ish vocals and I just don't think it's in their character to go all deathcore on us. Their sound is too heavily steeped in thrash, would just be too much of a change in direction.
ugh..You need to look more closer to that I suppose. Dude standing out there watching LAVA and thinking about the horrendous destruction and that's clear cut.
Oh, don't be so cynical
From the vid JOOE posted, (well, that specifically) sounds like Death Angel's more (most?) boring stuff. Million miles away from deathcore? Hell yes. But, thrash that's far and away from metalcore - not really. To my ears, anyway. And did I just hear the singer introduce it as a "nice, slow DEATH METAL tune for you all"?
