Memphis May Fire Set Fire To Their Guitar Strings

Bands like Memphis May Fire are interesting case studies in where we’re currently at in the mainstream metal scene. They seem to be at the forefront of a genre that doesn’t really have a name yet, but is definitely quantifiable; combining the sort of post-Periphery djent riffs, song structures, and breakdowns with the metalcore good cop/bad cop vocal stylings.


I don’t know if I’d ever find myself listening to this (except maybe in the gym along with Oceano). I way prefer nice music in major keys, like easycore.

But maybe you can get down with it. Check out a dual playthrough of the track “Stay the Course” off the band’s new album Unconditional, courtesy Guitar World. Dig that quadruple Mesa cab backline!
