Launching a brand new group line-up, dynamic metalcore outfit October Ends is back after the formation’s critically acclaimed and released last year debut EP – “A New Path” – with a vicious, aggressive and atmospheric metal rendition of one of the biggest songs in the world for the past few months – “Rockstar” by Post Malone!

Drawing on a much wider range of influences and offering up an assortment of intricate, melodic sections, which tread closer to the melodic end of the metalcore spectrum, October Ends showcases an established songwriting formula that separates the quartet from their peers with an ability to compose more measured sections, where the aggression is toned down for tasteful instrumentals, with bright leads utilized through the track to help neutralize an overemphasis on open note rhythms. With a smattering of technically impressive riffs, stomping heaviness to singalong moments throughout the composition, this creative heavy rendition of “Rockstar” provides incredibly proficient musicianship on display, with guitar-work which is electrifying and crisp and solidly executed vocals, alternating between low growls and soaring highs.
