i think its cool when a group can blend together various genres and do it exceedingly well. my introduction to such was probably back the first time i heard A DAY TO REMEMBER and saw how seamlessly they could mix POP PUNK with METALCORE. id definitely put BOSTON band INSPIRIT in that same category, albeit they are mixing an expanded experimental palette of POST HARDCORE-esque atmospherics (think GLASSJAW or AT THE DRIVE-IN) with memorable POP PUNK melodies. its a killer juxtaposition that works.
INSPIRIT is definitely worth checking out, as well as their previous 2000s incarnation as VANNA.
