EDITORS’ NOTES

With a sound that splits the difference between the thudding nu-metal of Korn and the squealing power grooves of Pantera, Louisiana's Cane Hill carve off a hard-hitting second album. Opener "Too Far Gone" sets the aggressive tone with jackhammer riffs and a tale of lysergic overindulgence, while the infectious chorus of "Lord of Flies" recalls classic Alice in Chains. Later, vocalist Elijah Witt invokes an R&B-style falsetto on the stormy "Why?" and announces the band's anti-neo-Nazi stance on the chaotic "Scumbag."

About Cane Hill

A hard-hitting metalcore unit based out of New Orleans, Louisiana, Cane Hill's punishing blend of post-hardcore and nu-metal draws from a deep well of divergent influences, from Pantera and Slipknot to hip-hop and indie rock. Founded in 2013 by vocalist Elijah Witt, guitarist James Barnett, bassist Ryan Henriquez, and drummer Devin Clark, the band cut its teeth on the road, sharing stages with contemporaries like the Hollywood Undead, the Acacia Strain, blessthefall, and For the Fallen Dreams. They eventually inked a deal with Rise Records and released an eponymous debut EP in 2015. The following year the group issued its first full-length outing, Smile, again via Rise, and in 2018 they dropped their sophomore effort, Too Far Gone. ~ James Christopher Monger
