Crossfaith hails from Osaka, Japan. Founded in 2006, they first came to Europe in 2014. Crossfaith is one of just a handful of bands to have the courage to combine brutal metalcore with electronica, although their sound keeps evolving. They also like to incorporate elements from industrial metal and melodic death metal. Apocalyze’ (2013) opened new doors for the electronicore quintet and while the electronica influence is still very much present, it is expertly interwoven with heavy drums and guitars. At GMM2014 Crossfaith kicked off the festivities on the Jupiler Stage on Sunday and they made a huge impression. Their ultra-brutal breakdowns, blast beats and scorching solos exploded onto the festival arena like a fragmentation bomb and by the end of their gig the fans in front of the stage were packed like sardines. 2015’s ‘Xeno’ once again illustrates that the collective from the land of the rising sun is not afraid to experiment. Their most recent outing ‘Ex Machina’ is a concept album set in the future and blends electronica and metal in way that sets them apart from the competition. If you’re open-minded about how you take your metal, Crossfaith comes highly recommended. (#GMM22)
