Today's 10 Most Promising Young Metal Bands


4. Northlane
Mixing singing and screaming has always been a winning formula for metalcore bands, and Australia's Northlane is no different. They're currently making waves with their particular brand of progressive metalcore, which features some of the more interesting use of space and ambiance that I've heard in metal in a long time.


3. Dead in the Dirt
Not many these days are doing raw, nasty grindcore like Dead in the Dirt is. That suits the band just fine, and makes them stand out all the more. You'll be hard-pressed to find many other bands this disgustingly heavy, but if you can survive your way through their 24-minute debut, it has a whole lot to love.


2. Power Trip
We've followed Power Trip's rise for a while here at Rocks Off, and they're definitely doing right by their loyal Texas following since signing with with Southern Lord. The crossover thrashers have released their debut full-length record, Manifest Decimation, to high critical acclaim and are currently touring all over the world impressing their brand on Europe.


One more to go...

How is CHON not on this list at all?? . I'm going to assume the person who made this article never heard of them before, because if they did CHON would of been in the top 5, if not, number 1. Here's one of their songs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cWa6C0OBqs
