Today I’m taking you to Canada to hear some good melodic death metal/metalcore . Threat Signal have been around since 2003 and have released three studio albums.
My friend black_floyd chose the two tracks for you from their debut album, Under Reprisal.
Without further ado, over to him:
This genre (metalcore) is not my favourite, generally speaking but their guitarist is a melodic genius who just destroys it with how awesomely he shines through even playing in such a seemingly limited genre. Here’s a couple morsels for you…
As I Destruct – easily one of my ten favorite all-time “beautiful” guitar solos (at 2:12).
Inane – From 4:04 until the end of this track, a gorgeous shift into a completely new section and it showcases why this band is yet another personnel tragedy since the guitarist, Kyle McKnight, is off doing some solo stuff and as far as I know, no release date is in sight.
These are both from the album Under Reprisal and there are a decent amount of other good songs on it too with a nice mix of chaotically heavy as well as melodic solos.
