Bullet for My Valentine, Bring Me the Horizon, Architects… the UK has always been a leading exporter of metalcore. Feel free to add While She Sleeps to this list. Formed in 2006, these metalcore heroes are widely viewed as one of the seminal bands of the new metalcore generation and they are particularly popular with younger metalcore fans. Rave reviews in leading metal magazines such as Kerrang and Metal Hammer did wonders for the band’s popularity and the success of their 2012 full-length debut ‘This Is the Six’, an album that made no concessions to the seductive call of the mainstream. Follow-up ‘Brainwashed’ (2015) kicked it up a notch with a collection of face-melting hardcore bombs that set them apart from the rest. Their latest slab is set for a March 2024 release; lead single and title track ‘Self Hell’ is out already so give it a spin! This also means you’ll have a number of new tracks to help you work up a sweat. (#GMM24)
