Austin's Drip-Fed make hardcore punk that's heavy and furious but still approachable and melodic, as you can hear on their rippin' new single "Move Right Through Me."

CULTED - "MAZE"
Blackened doomers Culted have shared another offering of their upcoming album Nous (due 2/26 via Season of Mist), and it's as creepy and evil as you'd hope.
DEFACTO EN SCRIPTURE - WHAT HAPPENS, HAPPENS
Screamo three-piece defacto en scripture dropped a new four-song EP on the trusty Middle-Man Records, and if you like screamo that can be as harsh and aggressive as it is melodic and beautiful, you should definitely check this out.
O - ANTROPOCENE
If you dig that defacto en scripture EP, you should also make sure you check out this album by Italian blackened post-hardcore band O, which actually came out last year but got a North American release on Zegema Beach Records today. Intense stuff.
DIGITAL EULOGY - CEMETERY FLOWERS EP
Grungy Connecticut post-hardcore band Digital Eulogy have just released their debut EP Cemetery Flowers on No Sleep (including a song featuring former Defeater member Jay Maas). If you're into the heavy side of Balance & Composure, you'll probably dig this.
