Ringleader - EP 2011

Ringleader is from Canada and play some heavy hardcore that takes on a fast moving and punishing style to it. The vocals remind me so much of Bloodlet that I can't help but compare this to Bloodlet every time I hear it. The music maybe more similar to a more straight forward version of Breather Resist or perhaps Bleeding Kansas.

There's only two songs here, but I'm pretty hooked in after hearing just over 6 minutes of what this band has to offer. The guitar work here varies to include a nice mix of well placed higher screeching and straight rhythm palm muting. The drums also back things up extremely creatively, using good judgement when to make the space busy and when to sit back and let it groove.

Definitely interested to hear more of what this band has to offer in the future.
