I don’t know what to make of Rhetoric.
I do know I kind of dig what they’re doing.
It just sounds so much different than what’s going on in the scene these days I’m taken aback. Usually, Readers’ Bands are just derivative drivel.
Rhetoric are comprised of members living in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
The band specializes in fast metallic hardcore.
One of the band’s founders, Brandon Delisio, reached out to us recently to get some promotion for Rhetoric.
That’s what this column is for…to devote space to bands who don’t have a PR machine pushing them.
“I play drums and compose for a progressive hardcore band called Rhetoric,” Brandon writes us, saying he’d “love for Gunshy to check it out.”
We’ve checked it out, and like I said, it’s different.
It’s the vocals.
But the music is killer, and it all seems to work somehow.
Like I said, I dig it.
Check out Rhetoric below and let us know if you dig them.
