One of them I recently ran across are Chasing Dragons. The band from Leeds are due to release their new record, ‘Checkmate’ on 2nd June via Trash Unreal Management. The band that has already released several EPs and singles just hit me very hard with the release of the track "For the sake of murder". Drawing comparisons to Iron Maiden, Avenged Sevenfold, AFI and Aiden come up to your mind when listening to their stuff.
As always its up to you to check their music out for yourselves and of couse please let me know what you think of them. For more information on the band check out their website and stay in touch with them through Facebook.
Update 2014/06/02: Show for June 4th has been cancelled, the band writes on Facebook about it:
"(...) Due to unforeseen venue actions entirely out of our hands, our show on Wednesday night with Death2Disco at The Macbeth in London has been cancelled. We're absolutely gutted to not be able to play for you guys but rest assured, the date is being REARRANGED for later in the summer! So we will be down to see you guys...If anyone has purchased tickets for this show in advance, please contact your vendor for a refund.
We'll keep you all posted with news on the new date...
Sorry for any and all inconvenience caused but it really is completely out of our control(...)"
