1. letlive. – The Blackest Beautiful

“When I tell people about letlive. I start with “think Refused meets Dillinger Escape Plan meets Rage Against The Machine.” The music is very melodic and groove-laden, combined with off-the-wall chaoticness that embodies their “why should I care?” thrash rock attitude. Maniacal frontman Jason Aalon Butler is a profound lyricist with cut-throat delivery on this record. This is a band you absolutely MUST see perform live.” – Andy Hawke
