losing a singer mid-career is one of the most difficult and treacherous obstacles a band can face. fans are beyond fickle. there are only a handful of bands i can think of that have navigated those waters successfully; for every success in AC/DC and ALICE IN CHAINS there is an INXS or QUEEN that has never quite recovered or returned their music to the same standard as before the passing of their singer.
longtime METALCORE band WE CAME AS ROMANS doesn't need any introduction or promotion on the part of this website, but i just wanted to say impressed i am with how coherent and absolutely crushing their music has been since the unfortunate passing of KYLE PAVONE in 2018. DAVE STEPHENS in particular has stepped up big-time and its just beyond commendable.
just wanted to do my part and say that their new stuff (as well as their past catalogue) is definitely worth checking out.
