Discovery: Eyes Wide Open

Eyes Wide Open are a melodic hardcore band from Sweden. Admittedly, it’s a genre often overlooked by this blog but if anyone’s going to do it well, it’s the Scandinavians.

By Graeme Smith

The four-piece’s new track The Disheartened Song is a fine example of the genre. Big riffs, big drums, growling vocals and an epic chorus. Eyes Wide Open are master of their art, having formed in 2011 and a new album on the horizon.

There’s a lot in The Disheartened Song for lovers of hardcore and even for those who are more casual listeners. Who knows, Eyes Wide Open could be your new favourite band. Check out The Disheartened Song below.
