With a band like The Ghost Inside absent due to their bus accident (speedy recovery to them), I have been waiting for a band to fill the void that has been left.  Gideon is the band that has filled that void with the release of their new single Cursed.  The track is from the upcoming 4th full length album “Cold” that will be released on May 12th.  If you have been waiting for a pure hardcore track that is going to get your head banging as soon as it starts, Cursed is the song you must listen to.

The song immediately starts with a guitar riff and drum fill that will get your heart racing as the adrenaline begins to build.  The vocals that are provided by vocalist Daniel McWhorter after the intro will complete the cycle and will dare you not to move as the song continues to build in intensity.  If that wasn’t enough, Bryan Garris of the up and coming hardcore band that is Knocked Loose, adds his intense vocals to a song that is already one of the heaviest songs of 2017.  With lyrics like, “Blame it on the bad luck baby, Stay away from me (stay away from me), Got me feeling like a black cat lately, I’ll bring you to your knees, Cursed!”  Gideon let’s you know that they are a force to be reckoned with their upcoming album.  The breakdowns within this song will get any crowd moving and open up mosh pits in all the venues Gideon plays moving forward.

Gideon has been around for some time now and I have had the pleasure of seeing them 3 times and have never left their shows disappointed.  Like those shows, Cursed left me wanting more and left my apartment in shambles as I felt the need to mosh in my living room.  Pre-Order “Cold” like I did and check out Gideon’s upcoming tour dates below!  A full album review will come after the release!
