RIYL: Defeater, Circle Takes The Square, La Dispute, These Arms Are Snakes, As Cities Burn

After one listen to their debut, Denver’ CO’s Orphans should have fans of dark, brooding hardcore clamoring for more. Taking cues from bands like These Arms Are Snakes and Circle Takes The Square, Orphans turn hardcore upside down on Pack Mentality. Chaotic with metallic urges, Orphans ferocity is striking as the band sounds matured beyond their newness. Yet, what is unique when listening to Pack Mentality, is that no matter how ferocious or frenetic the music may be, there remains a calm eye in Orphans’ storm. The band revolves around that core center with such measured brutality and precision. Where some of their peers make the mistake of letting the heart fall too close to the sleeve, Orphans heart remains firmly intact. The emotions never overpower the machine. Orphans don’t pick up the torch left smoldering by other bands, they piss on it and then destroy it entirely.
