Following on from the acclaim of their last album Solstice, metalcore purveyors The Northern return with a brand new single titled “Samsara.” And It Djents are lucky enough to have the exclusive video premiere.
Metalcore/djent doesn’t get much tighter than as demonstrated in “Samsara.” It continues the highly energized spirit of previous The Northern releases, with some great riffs, mega tight playing, and some sweet electronics midway. It’s also the first track to feature brand new singer Mike Cutway who delivers a charismatic performance as well as some damn impressive growls. Cutway replaced previous vocalist Nick Papageorgiou last year and, as proved in this song, has earned a permanent position in the band.
Anybody who liked this track will be pleased to hear that The Northern are never far from the recording studio. So expect more new stuff sooner rather than later. They are also preparing to embark on a grueling US/Canada tour during the entirety of May, named ‘May the Force Be With You.’ With such a busy year already in full swing, one can only look forward to what lies for The Northern in the future.
