It's been a solid decade since Boston hardcore favorites Death Before Dishonor dropped their last full-length offering, Better Ways to Die. And while hardcore has gone through its fair share of trends, ebbs and flows in that time, one thing that will never go out of style is solid songwriting, heavy riffs and a good ol' groove.
Today, June 14th, the crew proves that they've still got the goods with "Cowards Will Fall," a new track of meaty, riff-heavy hardcore that keeps it simple and compelling. The new cut is the opener for the band's forthcoming LP Unfinished Business, which is due July 26th via Bridge 9. (You can preorder your copy here.)
Recorded at ZEUSS Studio, "Cowards Will Fall" opens with a speedy opening section before breaking into half-speed at the bridge with an unforgiving riff built for pit violence. It's the sort of song that bears repeat listens and will give fans plenty of fuel for top-of-your-lungs screams. Check it out for the first time below.
