Colossus is a beast of a band whose sound lives up to the name. Massive and formidable, faithfully dedicated to the traditional hardcore principles, while also generously carving in plenty of hooks and sing-alongs for a superb multi-faceted and progressive sound. The diversity of the members’ influences enable them to keep the song writing fresh, and a modest hardcore scene in the band’s hometown of Sioux Falls, SD “has helped us take inspiration from a lot of different sounds. We have to reach out to find new music.” Going out of their local scene to experience musical diversity pays off for Colossus in doses of ingenuity and invention in each song; songs that make you want to learn the lyrics as fast as you can so you can sing along.
The band signed with Facedown Records for the release of their debut full length Time & Eternal, which comes out on June 11th. The first track, ‘Superficial Saviour’, can be streamed through the player below.
