At Metal Mad, we try to give bands the recognition they deserve and we like our readers to be forerunners. As such, we want to show you the bands to follow before the end of this year because when they take over, we don't want you to wonder where you were before.

#1 The Funeral Portrait

The Atlanta emo/theatrical rock band have recently signed with Better Noise. (congratulations !)

Holy Water is their recent and 2nd most streamed single, released in July 2019.

#2 Night Verses

If you've ever met someone who has seen this band live, then you must have heard something like : "Man ! I don't even know how this is real !". You can be standing there watching them play right in front of you and your mind would still be unable to process what your eyes are seeing.

Night Verses is an American post-rock band from Fullerton, California.

Each member is the Avenger of his own instrument.

Lineup : Drum Avenger: Aric Improta (voted 2019's number one rock drummer in the world), Guitar Avenger: Nick DePirro & Bass Avenger: Reilly Herrera

The band is currently working on new music..May the force be with us !

#4 Fight Like Sin

Now this is a band we came across and we wished someone told us about way earlier !

Fight Like Sin is an aggressive hard rock band from Lafayette, Indiana formed in 2012.

"Demons" is one of our favorite FLS' releases and we couldn't choose between the original version and the Cicada's, released this year. We hope you will enjoy listening to both.

This song carries a deep meaning and was dedicated to the Hope For The Day movement (suicide prevention and mental health education NGO)

#5 Palisades

Palisades is one of the bands who proudly thanks Linkin Park for inspiring them to start making music. And if this is not reason enough to love them, then we assure you that you will after listening to their album "Erase The Pain", produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Of Mice & Men, In Flames) and released at the end of 2018.

Palisades are currently working on the completion of their fourth album and we can't wait to see them setting the rock scene on fire.

The 4-piece NYC rebels Oxymorrons, have recently signed with Jason Aalon Butler’s label, 333 Wreckords. Being a full POC band in the rock/metal world, hasn't been easy for them.

Oxymorrons have dealt with everything the industry has thrown at them.

They are talented and they have a voice that needs to be heard so let's listen !

We know that many of you have been headbanging to Bad Omens' music already but this is definitely a band you should always keep an eye on because we see them filling Arenas in the coming years.

We simply love Bad Omens so we couldn't not talk about them. If you have never heard of these guys, then you should find God before God finds you (yes, that's a reference)
