Southampton’s premiere metalcore ensemble Bury Tomorrow created something incredible with 2018’s Black Flame, any follow-up needed to knock it out of the park. Thankfully, less than two years after its predecessor, Cannibal continues to make the case for metalcore’s validity in the alternative scene.

Too often, musicians can become constrained by genre conventions which stifle creativity; Bury Tomorrow consistently succeed in challenging metal norms to revamp and reimagine their sound. Quake breaks norms with dulcet guitars overlapping with powerful, low growls. Gods & Machines embarks has an almost pop-punk melody, but it’s piled high with the blasting drum lines and rapid-fire riffs that make Bury Tomorrow one of the UK’s greatest alt. assets of the past decade.
