Singled Out #1 - The Weight Of Atlas, Colt 45 & Cryptic Shift

This is a new feature that I've decided to put together to highlight singles that have recently been released. I'm going to try and carry it on as reviewing them in the same way that I would an EP or an album seems a bit pointless. This first instalment features singles by three very different bands; Dundee/Edinburgh based post-hardcore band The Weight Of Atlas, Cumbrian punks Colt 45 and Leeds sci-fi thrashers Cryptic Shift. Enjoy...

The Weight Of Atlas - The Art Of Letting Go

Scottish post-hardcore band The Weight Of Atlas recently released this single and accompanying video. They play post-hardcore with a mix of clean singing and metalcore-inspired screams, as well heavy instrumentation. It's a pretty modern sound that they pull off really well.

You can download it now via the usual mainstream outlets, including iTunes, Spotify and Amazon Music. 

Colt 45 - 17

Cumbrian punks Colt 45 recently released a 7" featuring A-side Hard Times (don't worry it's not a cover of the new Paramore song!) and this B-side. They've released a video that features footage from their recent tour. It's a good old British punk song this one.

Cryptic Shift - Cosmic Dreams

At the end of April, UKEM Records digitally released the latest single from Leeds death/thrash band Cryptic Shift. It's been released just in time for their upcoming Suffocation support slot in Leeds. There's no Youtube video for this one but who cares, when it's this heavy! Stream and download it below:-
