Dayseeker – ‘Dark Sun’ Album Review

Photo Credit: Amber Paredes Dayseeker – the Orange County quartet formed a decade ago – has always been a difficult band to categorize. “Post-hardcore” and “metalcore” are the labels most frequently assigned to the band, but said labels tend to obscure the nuances and peculiarities of their sound – their inclusion of synths, their capacity… Read more
